Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches
makes 4 sandwiches

1 Tablespoon Butter or Olive Oil
1 Small Onion, Chopped (about 1/4 Cup)
1 Small Green Pepper, Chopped (about 1/2 Cup)
1/4 Cup Chopped Celery (1 Stalk)
1/2 Cup Barbecue Sauce
1 Can (12.5 oz.) Chicken, Drained
4 Hamburger Buns, Toasted

Heat butter in a 2-quart sauce pan or deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pepper, onion, and celery and cook till they are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir the barbecue sauce and chicken into the pan. Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbly, stirring occasionally. Divide the chicken mixture among the buns.

When I'm a busy soccer mom, this recipe is definitely going into my dinner rotation. It seriously doesn't get easier than this. The secret is using good sauce. I had some homemade from a while back that I froze in 1/2 cup containers. Here is the recipe. My husband and I can just about polish off this whole batch, so if you've got a bunch of mouths to feed, I'd suggest doubling the or even tripling the recipe.

Trying out the new cutting board... it's huge!

First time using my dutch oven. It's so beautiful I want to cry... or maybe that's the onions that's making me want to cry:)


  1. Soccer mom, huh? When are those little soccer players going to start showing up? ;) I think I'm going to make this tonight!

  2. These were easy- and great! Definitely on my "easy dinner" list. Thanks!

  3. For a little spice you could also add a small amount of chopped green chilies ;)
