White meat chicken is slowly simmered in a homemade brown sugar barbecue sauce with sliced onions then sandwiched on a soft bun with sharp cheddar cheese. It’s ridiculously easy to prepare using the convenience of a crockpot and works magic on the chicken, causing it to fall apart to the touch. It has an incredible tenderness that just about melts in your mouth.
Succulent, sweet and tangy, the barbecue sauce has a perfect balance of flavors. The base of the sauce is ketchup with brown sugar, molasses, vinegar and spices like chile powder and smoked paprika to spice it up. It’s meaty, messy and finger-licking good. Everyone will love it.
Don’t fret if you don’t own a crock pot! I have included another version using store-bought rotisserie chicken. And have also included my go-to cole slaw recipe, for those of you who like the sensation of cool and crunchy cole slaw on your barbecue sandwiches.
