Super Simple Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

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!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 12-4 lbs rotisserie-cooked chicken, meat shredded (about 5 cups)
  • 1 -1 12 cup barbecue sauce (use your fave)
  • 14 cup pickled jalapeno pepper, roughly chopped (optional)
  • 4 hamburger buns (I like to use onion)


  1. In a bowl, combine the chicken, BBQ sauce and jalapeños (if using).
  2. Slightly heat mixture in microwave if you'd like.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly among buns.
  4. Great with coleslaw, potato salad or kettle chips!
  5. EAT!

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.

I had purchased a rotisserie chicken a few days ago and eaten the dark meat but still had the breast meat to use. I shredded up part of it and made about two sandwiches worth of this recipe. I used homemade BBQ sauce I already had on hand and toasted wheat bread in place of the buns (also what I had on hand). Really nice way to use up some leftover chicken. Thanks for sharing!
