Siracha Pulled Chicken Sandwich Reigns King During Football Season
But most importantly, college football season has started!
When I’m watching football, I always want snacks or something totally unhealthy for me.
Not to long ago, I was trying to come up with the perfect sandwich.
I know that so many people say that they have done this before, because, let’s be honest, sandwiches are pretty much the most amazing food ever.
They have layers of flavor.
You can do so much with them.
Do you want to know the best part of this recipe? You can use left over chicken breasts to cut down your cooking time.
That’s what I did.
We always buy a value pack of chicken breasts and I usually just cook all of them at once and use the other half for a recipe later on in the week. I think this is a fantastic way to save money!
Little man loves spicy food, so he really ate this up! He didn’t like the slaw so much, but I kind of expected that going in.
G, who hates slaw, actually liked the slaw. That’s when I know I have made something fantastic. When I can make him eat something that he usually hates.
