A couple Saturdays ago we were enjoying quite the snow storm. My husband and boys spent most of the day shoveling driveways. Needing to feel like I was contributing to their efforts, I wracked my brain trying to come up with something to feed them when they came back inside. It needed to be warm and heart, but no more soup! I had been on a soup kick and they were sick of all my soups! I was making raspberry twist to share with the neighbors when I remembered my mom’s famous BBQ Chicken Sandwiches. We would beg her to make these for us on snowy days.
I took some of the dough from the Raspberry Twists and formed them into sub shaped blobs. The Raspberry Twists use my favorite roll dough. I use it for cinnamon rolls, Sunday dinner rolls, and Raspberry Twists so I knew it would be good. I make these buns pretty flat and a little wide so there isn’t too much thickness, but enough surface space to stack all the goodness. Let raise then baked at 350 till golden brown.
When they finish baking they looked something like this.
While the buns are raising and baking I sliced and cooked the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked add your favorite BBQ sauce.
About this time, my boys had returned and boy were they hungry. To make these sandwiches we let everyone pick their topping, wrap the sandwich in foil and bake until the cheese is melted. So go ahead and build your sandwich right on the foil. First, I added mushrooms.
Then some slices of green peppers.
Followed by the BBQ chicken.
And topped off with grated cheese. You can add mayo or Miracle Whip if you’re into that.
Then wrap up your sandwich and write your name on the foil with a Sharpie. Throw them back in the oven until the cheese is melted. How long it takes depends on how hot your bread and chicken are to start with it usually takes between 5-20 minutes.. Just check and when the cheese is melted you are ready to eat!
