Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
Try serving this crowd-pleaser at your next movie night, book club, or other casual get-together. It’s a lighter take on a barbecue sandwich—made with chicken breasts instead of pork shoulder. The homemade barbecue sauce is simple to pull together, using mostly staple pantry ingredients. It’s delicious, and much lower in sugar and sodium than many bottled sauces. We use molasses for authentic BBQ flavor, but you can sub an equal amount of honey or brown sugar for a slightly different taste. When shopping for molasses, steer clear of blackstrap—it has a strong bitter flavor that will overpower the sauce.
