This is great for when it's during the summer when it's hot and humid (and I don't have much of an appetite). It's quick and easy. Also it's really good! Read More

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 Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
