Recipe - Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

I thought I'd test out an idea for the Super Bowl Party that I'm holding next weekend. This might make it onto the shortlist..

Normally I would make my own barbecue sauce but I was feeling a bit lazy. Besides that, there was a bottle of barbecue sauce in the pantry that looked like it wanted to volunteer. Nuff said!

3 skin- and boneless chicken breasts
Dry rub
Cherry Smoke Pellets
Barbecue Sauce

Rub the chicken breasts with the dry rub of your choice. Set the barbecue up for indirect cooking and get the smoke going. Cook the chicken breasts until done. Once done pull the chicken into smaller pieces. You can use two forks for this but I prefer to use my hands. Don't pull it to thin because then it just turns into mush when you put it in with the sauce.

Pour the barbecue sauce (I used Southern Sunset Bar-B-Que Sauce from Roadhouse BBQ) into a pan and heat until boiling, reduce heat to a simmer. Once the sauce starts to thicken you can add the chicken pieces and let it heat through.

Split the rolls and spoon up mixture and put the lid back on.

I served this with twice cooked fries.
