BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (approx 2 cans)
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1/3 cups BBQ sauce (I used Bull's Eye-Hickory Smoked)
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • hot pepper sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 sandwich buns
  • shredded cheese (optional)
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in a deep pot (I used a stockpot) with the onion, garlic, and just enough chicken broth to cover. Add the BBQ sauce, vinegar and a few drops of hot sauce and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer unit the chicken is cooked through (approx. 15-20 mins).
  3. Remove chicken from the sauce and shred with two forks. While you're working on this, bring the sauce back to a boil, and boil uncovered, until reduced by half (approx 15 mins).
  4. Season with pepper, and add the shredded chicken back into the pot and heat through.
  5. Spoon the mixture onto some sandwich buns and enjoy. May also add some shredded cheese, if you choose.
