Happy Friday! Can you believe that it’s the weekend already? How exciting.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting (not so patiently either) for the weekend to arrive.

More importantly, I’ve been dying to share this recipe with you guys. While many of you may enjoy a good pulled pork sandwich, I on the other hand like to keep things simpler by eating chicken.

I blame my love for chicken on my childhood. I remember loving chicken (specifically chicken wings) growing up, especially since my Grandmother would often take me to Popeyes where we would both indulge on their well-seasoned, crispy chicken. Yum. I can smell the sweet aroma now.

However, now that I am on a healthier food journey, I enjoy making my own tasty version of chicken.

If you’re into spicy foods, then I’d recommend taking a peek at these Hot + Spicy ‘Nine Mile’ Buffalo Chicken Wings. They come drenched in hot buffalo sauce with a hint of BBQ sauce and maple syrup to balance the heat.

But if you’re more of a burger fanatic, then you’ll certainly enjoy these Baked Salmon Sliders with BBQ Jerk Sauce or perhaps these delicious Extra Crispy Carrot Spinach Quinoa Veggie Burgers would do the trick.

Either way, you won’t be disappointed with their flavor.

Now, back to this recipe. So, these sandwiches make for the perfect summer dinner or lunch option. They are super easy to make and don’t require many ingredients.

Matter of fact, the ingredients required are common ingredients, which are often staple items. Plus, I’d recommend eating these sandwiches with these Crispy Baked Jerk Potato Wedges

But I should warn you that both dishes are spicy, so if you’re not a lover of ‘heat’ then I’d recommend eating them separately. Haha.

Best BBQ Sriracha 'Pulled Chicken' Sandwich

Start by adding 1 Tbsp of unsalted butter, BBQ sauce, sriracha sauce, a pinch of sea salt, dried parsley, and honey to a small saucepan, bringing everything to a slight boil for about 2-3 minutes, whisking occasionally.

Add shredded chicken to sauce and reduce heat to low while stirring everything together, until chicken is well coated. Set aside.

Prepare brioche buns by adding 1 Tbsp of butter to a heated skillet and adding buns, until insides become lightly brown and crisp.

Assemble sandwiches by adding a generous amount BBQ Sriracha shredded chicken, topping with a handful of shredded cheese, and complete it with the top bun. Repeat until all sandwiches are assembled.

Bon Appetite!

Tips & Tricks

BBQ SAUCE: If you choose to use a store-bought version, my favorite brand is Stubb’s BBQ Sauce.
HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE: 15 oz. can of tomato sauce, 3/4 cups water, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 2 Tbsps sriracha sauce, 2 tsps ground mustard, 1/3 cup agave syrup, 2 Tbsps pure maple syrup, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 Tbsp red pepper flakes, and 1 tsp smoked paprika. **Whip together: Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan on medium-high heat and whisk together until it begins to boil. Reduce heat to low-medium and let everything simmer for about 15 minutes or so, stirring occasionally. Once thickened enough to desired consistency, remove from heat and let cool. Set aside until ready to use or store remainder in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.**
STORAGE: Place any leftover chicken in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
