Quick BBQ Pulled Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich


Makes 2 sandwiches

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbsp. butter, divided
  • 4 slices bread
  • 1 cup Mexican blend cheese, shredded

Add the water to a large saucepan. Add the chicken and boil for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and transfer to a cutting board. Allow to cool slightly. Use two forks to shred the chicken. 

Add the chicken back to the saucepan over low heat. Add the BBQ sauce and cook just until warm.

Add 1/2 tbsp. butter to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place two pieces of bread in the skillet. Top each with 1/4 cup cheese, half of the chicken mixture, then the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Top each with a slice of bread. 

Cook sandwich for 3-4 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and bread is golden brown. Add remaining 1/2 tbsp. of butter to the skillet and flip over each sandwich. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and the other side is golden brown. Serve immediately.
