Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches


Welcome to the first post in the From My Kitchen series!  I am excited to share today's recipe with you and hope that you will come back week after week to see what else I have been cooking in my kitchen.

The purpose of this series is to help me broaden my horizons in the kitchen.  I fell into a huge rut cooking this past year and I have to get out of it.  I enjoy cooking (and baking), but I had lost interest.  I had lost interest to the point where I was mainly just fixing the same things over and over again throughout the month.

My poor family....
...And my hips.

I am holding myself accountable to all of you.  Once a week, there will be a new recipe posted.  It may not always be a dinner item.  It may be a dessert or a quick lunch idea.  Either way, it is something that I have made in my kitchen not from a box!  (I told you it got bad!) 

This definitely did not come from a box....




Would you look at that?
Oh so good!

I have a huge amount of recipes saved on Pinterest.  This particular recipe came off of my slow cooker recipes board and is brought to you by Liz from Love Grows Wild.  I made this earlier last week on a particularly dreary day here in the Midwest.  I wanted something comforting, yet simple, and this dish provided just that.

Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Here is what you will need: 


Ingredients
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 
1 18 oz bottle of honey BBQ sauce
1/2 cup of Italian Dressing 
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
Kaiser rolls 


Get out your slow cooker and place the chicken breasts in the bottom.  I used 4 decent sized chicken breasts and we had enough left over for another dinner.  No joke.  This would probably freeze great too!


In a bowl, mix together your BBQ sauce, Italian dressing, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.  Make sure you get it nice and blended!  Smell that?  Yea....just wait...your whole house is going to smell like it soon...

Pour all of that sauce over your chicken

Like this:


Now, plop the lid on the cooker and set it and forget it!

If you a crunched for time, you can set it on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
Got a little time?  Set that baby on LOW and let it go for 6-8 hours.
I cooked ours for a total of six and a half hours and it was just fine.

About 30 minutes before you are ready to eat, shred the chicken.  Mine was so ready I was able to just break it apart with a cooking spoon while still in the cooker.  You can also take it out and shred it with two forks, whichever you desire.


Let the chicken cook for another 30 minutes so it gets all nice and saucy.

Spoon the chicken onto some Kaiser rolls and voila!  
You have yourself a warm and simple meal.


What I like about this is that it can be used in the warmer months and the colder months.  Can you imagine eating this at a Fourth of July picnic with some potato salad?  Mmm, yummy! 

What have you all been cooking up lately?

  3. Hi Sara! Did you question the idea of combining Italian salad dressing with BBQ sauce? It must be good by your review, so I will give it a try myself. We love anything with BBQ sauce. Our favorite is Famous Dave's Sweet & Sassy.

    1. Ya know, I didn't until you just said something. Ha! It is kind of strange combination, isn't it? There was a hint of an Italian tang to the sauce now that you mention it, but there was also a subdued sweetness, too. If you tweak it, let me know so I can give it a whirl too!
