Introduction

This low-calorie, low-fat version of the classic BBQ sandwich will be a new family favorite! This low-calorie, low-fat version of the classic BBQ sandwich will be a new family favorite!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    dash of salt and pepper
    2/3 cup BBQ sauce
    6 whole wheat hamburger buns

Directions

Place chicken breasts, along with salt and pepper to taste, in a large pot of water and boil until fully cooked through. (Time will vary depending on whether you are using fresh or frozen chicken.)


Once the chicken is cooked, use a fork to pull the meat apart so it is thickly shredded. (Shredding too finely will cause the sandwich to become mushy once sauce is added.) Place pulled chicken in a large bowl.


Add a half bottle (approx. 2/3 cup) of BBQ sauce. Toss until chicken is coated.


Distribute chicken evenly onto buns. You may choose to toast the buns first, or add toppings like lettuce or red onion to the mixture, or spread a small amount of the sauce right onto the bun before assembling. This delicious alternative to the classic bbq sandwich will be a hit any way you serve it!

    Merita Lite wheat hamburger and hotdog buns only have 80 calories each, and would cut down on the calorie count. I would probably simmer the chicken breasts in a little chicken broth, which I would later use for soup or to cook cabbage, cauliflower or broccoli. - 8/8/07

    This is tasty! I cook the chicken in my crock during the day, drain, add BBQ and viola! Effortless, great for work days. Thanks for sharing! :O) - 2/25/09

    Consider open faced sandwiches to cut down on half the carbs/calories from the buns. I definately recommend toasting buttered buns w/a sprinkle of garlic powder on a griddle before assembling. Would be great with roasted asparagus! - 9/14/07

    I use a lot less BBQ sauce and no salt since the BBQ sauce has plenty. I put it on Arnolds Wheat Sandwich Thins at 100 calories for a top and bottom bun. (I use the sandwich thins for all my sandwiches now - it's delicious!) This makes a great breakfast sandwich and it's really filling. - 7/29/09

    I only ended up using 6 tbsp of BBQ sauce for 12 oz of chicken, and it was delicious! - 8/11/07
