Recipe by Ginny Sue

I came up with this recipe while thinking of ways to use some leftover rotisserie chicken. We loved these!

Very easy, and good. I couldn't find Hawaiian rolls, so used a twelve-count of dinner rolls, which were connected. I sliced them as directed, and put them in the oven to toast up a little before spreading with the hot chicken mixture. Everyone in the family gave this meal two thumbs up!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I used rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 (12 ounce) packageking's hawaiian rolls (12 count)
  • 12 slices dill pickles


  1. Shred chicken finely, and combine with barbecue sauce and honey in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Cover and heat in microwave for about 4 minutes or until hot, stopping to stir after about 2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oven per package directions for rolls.
  4. Slice rolls horizontally into 2 large pieces with a large serrated bread knife. (Do not separate into individual rolls.).
  5. Replace top of roll and heat in oven per package directions.
  6. Remove from oven, remove top of roll and spread hot chicken mixture over bottom roll.
  7. Place the pickle slices evenly over the chicken, then replace roll top.
  8. Cut carefully into individual rolls, and serve.
  9. I find this method easier than trying to fill each roll individually.
  10. Makes 12 appetizer servings or 4 main dish servings.
