Rodeo Chicken Sandwiches

These sandwiches are so good. Everything can be prepared ahead of time and left in the refrigerator. At dinner time all that’s left is to assemble the sandwiches and warm them in the microwave or oven. You can prepare them as a stand alone meal or from leftover chicken. Talk about turning leftovers into a wonderful new meal!
Rodeo Chicken Sandwiches

  • 1 lb. fully cooked shredded or diced chicken
  • 2 c. ketchup
  • 1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 2 t. cumin
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. black pepper
  • 1/2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 T. butter or margarine
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6-8 slices cheese
  • 6-8 hamburger buns

1. Prepare the barbecue sauce by combining the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes in a bowl. Stir until combined. Add the shredded or diced chicken and stir to coat.
2. In a small skillet, heat the 2 T. butter or margarine over medium heat until melted. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until browned, about another 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Divide the barbecue chicken evenly between the hamburger buns. Top with onions and mushrooms, then top with cheese. Place under a broiler or in the microwave just until the cheese melts.

  1. Minus the mushrooms that looks delicious! 🙂 I am not a very big fan of those slimmy, mushy, little things. 🙂

  2. Almost like a sloppy joe but with chicken. I like it! Well except for the mushrooms but they can easily be omitted.

  3. This is one of my go to recipes when I am in a hurry to make something for dinner. I cook a whole chicken and then shred it up so I always have shredded chicken in the freezer.

    This is a favorite at our house! Thank you for this recipe!
