Super Simple Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by RockChalkChick

This comes from an old issue of Real Simple magazine. Shredding rotisserie chickens can be messy, but I think it is well worth the effort! The rotisserie chicken really adds a lot of flavor to this sandwich. But the real flavor will depend on what BBQ sauce you choose. Get creative!

These were very easy and tasted great!! How can you really go wrong starting with a rotisserie chicken? My DH adored this. I did not use the jalapeno (personal preference).Very easy. Made for Spring PAC,2011.
