BBQ Chicken Sandwiches are a perfect meal for any night of the week, but they are especially delicious in the summertime. They take less than 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish, using some already prepared ingredients like pre-cooked chicken (I use my slow cooker shredded chicken), canned biscuits and packaged coleslaw mix.
The chicken is mixed with barbecue sauce and heated while the biscuits are baking. When the biscuits are finished just brush them with some yummy garlic herb butter to give them a nice flavor and some color. Of course if you want to get even more flavor, make up a batch of my Crockpot BBQ Chicken. It will take a fw hours to cook but it’s totally worth it and super delicious.
I have been trying to come up with a coleslaw recipe that come close to KFC and for us this recipe came pretty close. Packaged coleslaw mix is the base, and the sauce is just mayo and sour cream plus some apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard and garlic. It’s super creamy with a slight tang which is just awesome. I like to make it a few hours before we’re planning on eating to give the flavors some time to blend and it still has a nice crunch to it.
We loved these sandwiches and plan to be making them again soon!
There are so few steps in this recipe, you can hardly call it a recipe!
These sandwiches are a total picnic style meal so anything you’d take to a picnic would go great. Cold salads like Bacon Ranch Potato Salad or Hawaiian Macaroni Salad are especially delicious. Hot sides like Easy Baked Potato Wedges or Homemade French Fries are a family favorite, too.
If you have leftover BBQ Chicken Sandwich fixings, most of it should be eaten or discarded within a few days. BBQ Chicken can be stored in a freezer container in the freezer for 2 months.
