Easy Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

We have taken whole chickens and cooked them in our slow cooker, or used rotisserie chicken leftovers to make this recipe.  You can use any leftover chicken you have to make this delicious barbecue chicken sandwich.  We have been known to cook a chicken, just to make this too. No shame.

You can even freeze into family servings and pull out and make barbecue chicken, for a quick and easy meal.

This is perfect to make ahead of time and warm up as it gets more flavor, the longer it sits in the barbecue sauce.

Two cups of shredded chicken will get you about 2 barbecue sandwiches.  If you have additional chicken, you can make chicken soup.
