Sweet Baby Rays Chicken BBQ Sandwiches
Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches
I am so lucky since I live less than two blocks from a Sam’s Club. A ten minute trip and I have have a rotisserie chicken for any meal. Since there are only two of use here, and we both love the dark meat, the legs and wings are the first items to go. The chickens are so big that one leg and wing is more than enough for a meal. So we always end up with half a chicken.
I am always looking for new ways to use up my leftovers and change them into new dishes. This quick recipe will quickly convert that leftover chicken into a tasty fresh meal. For the chicken feel free to use leftover fried, baked, roasted, rotisserie, grilled or just pan fry a few pieces to use here.
Mom loving to sneaking vegetables in when she cooked and I picked up the same habit. I finely dice an onion, a rib of celery and shred a carrot on the large holes of a box grater. With the sauce no one every knows they are in there. We will keep this our secret so mum’s the word.
Making Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches.
First thing that needs to get done is to remove the chicken from the bones and take the skin off. Chop the chicken up into piece. Don’t worry if the amount you have does not match the recipe, we are using leftover chicken here, so just adjust your other ingredients as needed. Mainly the Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue sauce.
Next we prepare the vegetables. I like to finely chop one small onion and one rib of celery. I like a hit of sweetness the carrot can give so I shred it using the large holes on a box grate. We’re all prepped and ready to cook.
Heat a tablespoon or so of oil or butter in a frying pan and add the chopped vegetables. Cook until they are soft but not caramelized.
Throw in the chicken, add the Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue sauce and for an added kick a few tablespoons of distilled white vinegar. It will give this a bit of a bite. Stir everything together and bring to a simmer. Simmer for ten minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
Serving time. Use a good quality hamburger bun such and Martin’s Potato Buns. If you want to go low carb, you can always serve it on a piece of lettuce.
Throw some potato chips along side or a prepared deli salad and dinner is served.
All this in under 30 minutes.
