  • Now that football season is upon us it’s time start to start thinking about “game day” food. One of my hubby’s favorite things is BBQ chicken sandwiches. I love them too because they are super simple to make and quite tasty!

    A few weeks ago I was walking through the grocery store and spotted Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. I’m not much of a pop drinker, but I make my sweet pork with Dr. Pepper (which is delicious), so I knew I had to buy some to try with the BBQ chicken sandwiches I was making that night. I also picked up some King’s Hawaiian hamburger buns because they are the best! They are super soft and have a great flavor.

    These BBQ chicken sandwiches ended up being my all time favorite. Want the recipe? Here ya go… it’s super simple!

    Delicious BBQ chicken sandwiches - Super simple to make and quite tasty!


    • 4 boneless chicken breasts
    • 16 oz BBQ sauce (1 bottle)
    • 1/4 cup water
    • salt & pepper to taste
    • 8 King’s Hawaiian hamburger buns
    • cilantro, for topping (optional)


    • Place water, chicken and BBQ sauce in a crock pot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until the chicken easily shreds.Then shred the chicken and let simmer with sauce for 30 minutes. If you’re in a hurry you could always use a cooked rotisserie chicken as well. All you do is pull off the chicken and mix with BBQ sauce.
    • Once your chicken is shredded place on bun and top with cilantro.
