Mini BBQ Chicken Sandwiches - Generations Magazine - April - May 2012Perfect for game time. Set it up in your crock pot and you won’t even miss a pitch.


Pre-roasted chicken is best for this recipe — you can’t beat it for the convenience and flavor. This is an easy recipe to make using your crock pot, or you can slowly cook it on your stovetop. All it requires is gentle simmering. If you have some coleslaw handy, it goes great in the sandwiches!

  • 2 large onions, sliced thick
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4-5 cups roasted chicken, shredded
  • 1 cup prepared BBQ sauce
  • Salt & ground black pepper, to taste
  • Dinner rolls

Directions (Serves 6 to 8)

In a large saucepan with the olive oil, cook the onions until they are fully browned and caramelized – they will have lost most of their moisture and turned a beautiful golden-brown color. Mix in the chicken, BBQ sauce and season. Then cover and cook on low heat for 40 minutes (or put into a crock pot on high and walk away!). Check back to stir occasionally, if the liquid seems to be evaporating too quickly, add a little water. When ready to serve, cut each dinner roll and scoop about a 1/4 cup of the mixture on each roll.
