How to Make a BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Putting together this barbecue chicken sandwich recipe is as easy as putting three ingredients on top of a toasted bun. Add in more ingredients if you’d like!

Start with a well-toasted hamburger bun. A hot dog bun will also work, especially if you’re making sandwiches for folks at a picnic.

Take your bun and spread mayo on one half. Then top with your BBQ pulled chicken. I generally like to make the pulled chicken the day before and heat it up when I’m ready to use it.

Then add your pickles (Click here for the Best Homemade Pickles) on top of the chicken and top with your bun. Add more BBQ sauce or mayo to top off your sandwich.

Serve your sandwiches immediately.
