BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Sandwiches

In every issue of Cook's Country (a magazine put out by the people at America's Test Kitchen) they feature quick weeknight meal ideas. One that caught my eye was the BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Sandwich made with bacon, cheddar, BBQ sauce and chipotle on a roll.

It was very simple to make, but I didn't like the flavor. Granted, my tastebuds still aren't completely recovered from the sinus infection, but it just didn't taste good to me. I think it was the BBQ sauce we used. Growing up we always bought a certain brand (the name is escaping me at the moment), but I couldn't find it in the supermarket last week. We ended up buying Jack Daniels sauce and I think that whiskey flavor was what put me off. Everything else was good - the bacon, the smoky spice from the chipotle, the melted cheddar - but that sauce just didn't work for me. SP begged me to make these again, so I'll see if I can find the BBQ sauce I like (Mom, if you read this, please comment and tell me what the sauce is!)
Pin It!


  1. Have you ever tried Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce??

  2. Nope, never have. Is it sweet or vinagery?

  3. The sauce would be Open Pit! Not available in all grocery stores. Try the Quality Market. Mom

  4. Umm, I think sweet. Alls I know is it is GOOOOOOOOOOD!

  5. Open Pit!! Thanks, Mom! That was driving me crazy. :)

    D - I'll have to check it out. I prefer a vinagery sauce because I like the tang, but I've heard good things about Sweet Baby Rays.
