Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with Coleslaw

Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with Cole Slaw

I had leftover roasted chicken meat to use up as well as leftover homemade barbecue sauce so I decided to shred the chicken, toss it with the sauce, and put it on some hamburger buns.  At the last minute, I decided to whip up some tasty coleslaw to put on the sandwich too.  These sandwiches were AMAZING!  Even my picky kids said they liked them and my husband and I loved them.  I had a leftover sandwich today and it was just as tasty.  This was a quick and delicious dinner and a perfect way to use up my leftovers.

  1. Looks delicious Pam. I have lots of leftover Roasted Chicken from last night. I can see these Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches on the menu this week for sure!!! Now, if I could just figure out how to “whip up” some tasty coleslaw. Will check…

    Thanks for sharing…

  2. I was hoping you were going to post whatever you served with that delicious cole slaw! This BBQ sandwich is perfect, and so easing using store bought rotisserie chicken. Great idea, Pam!

  3. That looks ridiculously awesome. I’m not a fan of hamburger buns, so I’d prob swap that for something else, but I LOVE coleslaw. It’s pretty much good on everything (including hot dogs!)

  4. hey girl!
    so sorry I’ve been so absent 🙁
    I see I’ve missed like A LOT.
    I eat a lot of my sandwiches with cole slaw.
    One of my crazy cravings is to have roast beef with cole slaw and a touch of chutney. It’s really good.

  5. BBQ is big in my part of North Carolina and in the Carolinas they always ask, “do you want slaw on it?” when you order a BBQ sandwich. Surprised me the first time I was asked, but there’s just something so special about the flavor of BBQ and slaw together between a bun that makes your taste buds happy.
