Shredded BBQ Chicken Sammie

Pulled pork sandwiches are a popular summer recipe, but these Shredded BBQ Chicken Sammies are a lot healthier and SO easy to make. My family loves BBQ. I eat barbecue sauce on everything from shrimp to chicken to baked potatoes, so it's no surprise to me that my kids are into it too. I find that once you find a barbecue sauce that your family enjoys (preferably one made without corn syrup), it will become one of your best friends in the kitchen.

As you know from this past Monday's post, I love whipping up Crock Pot BBQ Chicken for Sunday night dinner. What I didn't tell you yet is all the great things you can do with the leftovers. I like to shred them for sammies for Monday's school lunch and for quesadillas on Tuesday. That covers three meals with one easy to prepare recipe. When you're able to make cooking this easy on yourself AND your family loves what you make, it makes for seriously good times!
