Perfect picnic sandwich I made the chicken filling (quadrupled for 4), brought it in a dish to an outdoor concert, with brioche buns and romaine leaves packed separately; put together right before eating to avoid soggy sandwiches. Very tasty! Served with coleslaw and fruit, made a very nice picnic dinner. Pros: Easy to make, very tasty, portable Cons: Probably not health conscious

You can't tell the difference My husband is a very picky non veggie eater and I made this sandwich he loved it; you can't taste the carrots they just add a little crunch. To make mine a little healthier I did not add the ranch, I used sandwich thins or Flax Pita, and used a good BBQ sauce without alot of sugar. This has now became a staple for our lunches.

Great Simple BBQ! Great sandwich, easy and quick for weeknight dinners. I skip the ranch addition and use Sticky Fingers BBQ sauce. If your not using the shredded carrots, coleslaw mix is great to throw in too, plus a pickle or two on top. Yum! Usually make this with the healthy onion rings. Pros: Tastes great, simple, quick

I'm dieting, so I made mine on an Arnold Wheat sandwich thin, skipped the dressing and used a low cal Ken Davis BBQ sauce. My sandwich came in at 215 Calories with 2.4 ounces of shredded chicken breast. Yummy and satisfying lunch, I'll be making it again. I heated the mixture for 45 seconds in the microwave to take the chill off.

LOVE BBQ everything!! =P ....I saw this recipe and fell inlove. You can easily make this leftover meal low in sodium and health cautious while enjoying the mouth watering flavors.I used a low fat-low sodium BBQ sauce, and X-out the ranch dressing. I did however, added my little touch by sauting' red onions with a tad of extra virgin oil to the skillet, to give it that sweet caremelized taste...Goes great with BBQ.
