My favorite thing about using a Zesty Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sandwiches maker is how easy they are to put together and the way you can customize them to fit your own taste and tastes. For example, you can create different flavors and spices using the many choices of ingredients you have. Here’s how to do it!
Combine Italian dressing with spicy barbecue sauce for a flavorful sauce for perfect slow cooker chicken sandwiches. Or, if you are using a recipe that calls for barbecue sauce, then simply substitute the Italian Dressing for the barbecue sauce. Or, you may want to use BBQ sauce as well and just add a bit more of the Italian Dressing, or if you’re not comfortable doing that, then add the BBQ sauce as a topping to the sandwich. Now that we live in Texas, barbecue season is all the rage! If you haven’t yet tried this great recipe for BBQ chicken sandwiches, then now is the time!
If you are using sandwich buns, then get some bread topper that you can put on top of the sandwich. A couple of my favorites are pineapple, olives, and bacon. Another choice would be to add a sliced ham hock, bacon, and cheese on top of the sandwich. You may even like to add a dollop of sour cream, too.
If you are using chicken breasts, cut a few thin slices off of each side, about one inch wide. Use a basting brush to brush the chicken breasts with the BBQ sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and kosher salt. Print
