Fabulous Chicken BBQ Sandwich June 13, 2012

Who said to have a really good BBQ sandwiches it had to be made from pork?  Definitely not me.  A friend of mine who does not eat very much pork wanted to know if there was a way to make BBQ with chicken and still have it taste good.  Of course, I replied and then headed to the test kitchen to see if I could make it work!  I made it a couple of ways at first.  I have a rotisserie thing for chicken (like at a grocery store but the chicken stands) and I put some rub spices on a chicken and cooked it that way.  Liked the result but then, I only used the breast because that is the lean/low fat part of the chicken so I was a bit of a waste for me.  However, if you utilize the  entire chicken it would work.  The next process that I tried was to grill/smoke some really large chicken breast, let them cool for at least 30 minutes and then shred them for the sandwich.  This was a way I liked the best.

I think you will enjoy the B.I.T.E. test with this sandwich a great deal.  Enjoy!  For comments/questions email  ramona@lowfatdivablog.com
