All I can say is YUM! ;-)

Ingredients:

*it's easier to slice thinly if you freeze for about 20 minutes first.

Directions:

Combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, cilantro, green onions, lime zest, lime juice and hot sauce in a shallow dish. Add the chicken and marinade for about 30 minutes, turning once.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken until almost cooked through. Spread chicken out in an even layer, top evenly with cheese and continue to cook until cheese is just melted.

Meanwhile, mash together the avocados, red onion, tomato, jalapeno and lemon juice in a medium bowl and season with salt.

Evenly spread guacamole on two of the toasted bread slices and top each with lettuce and the chicken and cheese. Top with the other two toasted bread slices and serve.

Love that this uses canned chicken! So easy and good!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (5 oz.) can boned chicken
  • 1 pkg. crackers
  • 1 Tbsp. instant minced onion
  • 2-3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 small stalks celery, blended
  • water or broth

Directions:

Chop large pieces of chicken. Add broken crackers and onion. Toss slightly. Add beaten eggs and blended celery. Mix along with additional water or broth until soupy.

Bake at 375 degrees F for about 1 1/2-2 hours, stirring twice during baking. Extra moisture should be absorbed and it should be lightly browned. Cool. Can be stored in refrigerator and microwaved as needed. Can also use fresh chicken instead of canned.

Servings: 4-6
Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 90-120 Minutes

I am wondering if someone could please help me find a shredded chicken sandwich recipe. The one I'm looking for I've always had at church get togethers. It's always kept warm in big cookers, like a crock-pot. I am not sure if it's cooked in the cooker or not. It would be great if it's a recipe for a slow cooker. Thanks for any help. I love this site.

Ok, it took me a bit to find some recipes. There are so many different things you can do. Not everyone wants to do it the "hard way", but sometimes I like to make it all from scratch to try something new. I have not tried these recipes, but they look so good.

Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

4 lbs. skinless boneless chicken breast

2 15 oz. cans chopped tomatoes

2 med. onions, chopped

1 c. water, if needed

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 c. ketchup

1/2 c. cider vinegar

1/3 c. Worcestershire Sauce

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/8 tsp. Tobasco Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Coer; cook on low for 5-6 hours on high 2-3 hours. Shred chicken with forks and mix. Mixture will be thick, add water if needed. Serve on buns.

Maple Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 c. ketchup

1/2 c. maple flavored syrup (another recipe I saw similar to this one added molasses to it)

2 Tbsp. yellow mustard

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce

2 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 to 1 tsp. chili powder

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Combine everything but the chicken in a bowl and stir, then set aside.

Place chicken in crock pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the prepared sauce over the top. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.

When ready to serve, remove and shred chicken. Put chicken back in with sauce. Serve on buns.

**You can add diced bell pepper or onion to this as well. Whatever your taste desires.

Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

2 Tbsp. rice vinegar

1 Tbsp. mayonnaise

1 Tbsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. Tobasco Sauce

1/4 tsp. salt

2 c. shredded cole slaw mix from 16 oz. bag

1/2 c. shredded carrots

1/2 c. thinly sliced red onion

2 Tbsp. cilantro leaves

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1/2 c. spicy barbecue sauce, divided

4 hamburger buns

In med. bowl, combine first nine ingredients and stir. Set aside.

Gently pound chicken to flatten slightly. Spread top of each breast half with 1 tsp. barbecue sauce, and broil 3-4 minutes or until cooked through.

Tear chicken into shreds with two forks by skewering with one and pulling the other. Heat shredded chicken with remaining barbecue sauce. Serve on buns.

Add barbecue sauce to top and/or add coleslaw to your sandwich. Or just have coleslaw on the side.

Tonight I decided to make sloppy joes and pretty much used the Maple Barbecue Chicken Sandwich recipe listed below.

We have a large family, so I doubled most of everything. I used hamburger in place of chicken and in place of the ketchup I used one can of tomato sauce and two cans of tomato paste with one of those paste cans filled with water. I also added diced onion to the recipe. It was very good!

My mother used to do chicken sandwiches from scratch. She would clean and cook the whole chicken in a roaster. I know she added cracker crumbs and chicken stock, but I am not sure what else she added.

She would cook the chicken for several hours, remove the meat and skin from the bone, remove the bone. After shredding the meat she put the meat back in with the ingredients. Does anyone have a recipe that is similar to this. It is the extra seasoning and ingredients I am not sure of.
Thanks for any help.

I use a box of Stove Top stuffing and chicken broth. It gives it just the right amount of seasoning. If it's too thick, add more stock. I have also used the heels of bread I keep in the freezer and poultry seasoning and salt to taste but I prefer Stove Top.

Recipe for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

My husband makes the best chicken salad. He adds grapes, walnuts, and mayo, a little mustard, and salt and pepper to the chicken. (09/17/2009)

Recipe for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

Oh my gosh, it's been over a year since I've been here, and it's great to be back! My husband got the following recipe for shredded chicken sandwiches from a co-worker a few years ago. He was looking for sandwiches that taste like the ones Dairy Queen used to sell, and to him, this recipe does the trick.

  • 1 50-oz. can canned chicken
  • 1 box Stove Top stuffing, (cornbread or chicken flavor)
  • one can cream of chicken soup (low-fat is fine)
  • enough chicken broth to moisten the mix

Combine the first three ingredients in a crock pot, then add chicken broth til moistened. Cook on high for one-one and one-half hours or on low for 2-3 hours.

I realized I made an error of sorts when I originally posted this. I do use a 50-oz. can of chicken, but I end up adding more broth. The first time I made it, the recipe called for 32-42 oz. shredded chicken. Sorry, folks. (09/20/2009)

Recipe for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

I have not used canned chicken, however I use precooked whole chickens that you buy at Sam's or Costco. I shred them add BBQ sauce and some chopped onions, heat them and serve them on onion rolls. They are always a big hit at any party. (12/17/2007)
