Every Sunday, I roast a small hen (or if I'm feeling lazy, I'll buy the store bought rotisserie chicken). I pull the skin away, take the bones and throw them in a pot for stock (Paleo folks would like to call this "bone broth"), and shred the meat.
With the meat, I whip in enough barbecue sauce to make it saucy, but not toooo saucy. That goes into the fridge and now I have impromptu dinners and lunches for the week, especially on those nights that I am too exhausted. Hey, I get tired. Teaching and writing and lifting sandwiches is hard work!
For you, I have created this simple recipe to help guide you in your BBQ chicken sandwich making adventures. The nutrition information is for a standard hamburger bun at 120 calories, but I would note that I tend to use the "slim" buns or no bun at all.
For a no-bun meal, heat up the chicken (or don't) and serve it over chopped romaine, shredded carrots, and other salad goodies. Perfect for the no-wheat or Paleo folks. I've also been known to eat this straight from the bowl, or add super sour pickles to my sandwich. The tartness brightens the entire meal.
