This was made on 6/19/10 to add to my freezer stash. And due to what was on hand this is how it was made, I used ground turkey instead of chicken. And I used about 1 1/2 cups of " Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce " ( We like ours a bit more on the sloppy side :) ) I did have a taste before adding to the freezer, and it's a " Keeper " Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
This is a keeper! It delivers an avalanche of flavors with diabetic friendly numbers. I used the food processor grate (grind) the chicken and I learned something. If your going to do this let the chicken fully thaw first, I'll try it at about 50% next time. I didn't have any green pepper but red worked perfectly well. Be sure to use your favorite BBQ sauce as it's really the predominant player. Made for Photo Tag.
Had some shredded & frozen chicken breast that I had to use up before making more of the same, & so I used that in place of the ground chicken, but other than that, the recipe was followed right on down! So easy to make these great tasting sandwiches! I even used a homemade BBQ sauce which made these even more special! Thanks for a great recipe keeper!
