Every Sunday, my mother roasts a small hen. She pulls 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, she whips in enough barbecue sauce to make it saucy, but not toooo saucy. That goes into the fridge and now the family has saucy BBQ chicken for impromptu dinners and lunches for the week. And her effort does not go unnoticed. The rest of the family digs into that chicken.
For you, I have re-created my mom's 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.
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.
