Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

I made homemade barbecue sauce and I made a lot of it, so I needed to cook some things to eat with it. Plain old chicken is boring so I made this. You'll like it, I promise.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 Cups chicken stock
  • 1 Cup beer (optional)
  • 2 Cups Maple Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
  • 8 whole-wheat rolls

Directions

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt, to taste, and add to the pot. Brown both sides for 1-2 minutes. Add the chicken stock and beer. Reduce the heat and boil until the chicken is cooked, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the chicken, let cool, and pull apart using a fork. Toss the pulled chicken with the Maple Bourbon Barbecue Sauce. Heat in a pan or microwave and serve on a whole-wheat roll.

Pulled Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Pulled Chicken Cooking Tip

Legs take longer than breasts to cook. For more consistent results, mark the chicken on the grill and then finish cooking them in an oven.
