Nothing says “bring on the good weather” better than a great Chicken sandwich
•1 1-3/4- to 2-lb. purchased roasted chicken
•1 medium onion, cut in 1/4-inch slices
•1 Tbsp. olive oil
•1/3 cup cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
•1/2 cup tomato sauce
•3 to 4 Tbsp. seeded and finely chopped fresh red and/or green serrano chile peppers
•2 Tbsp. snipped fresh thyme
•2 Tbsp. molasses
•2 Tbsp. water
•1/2 tsp. salt
•6 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split
•Bread-and-butter pickle slices or sweet pickle slices
1. Cut the meat from the chicken, discarding skin and bones. Use two forks or your fingers to pull meat into shreds.
2. In a large skillet cook onion in hot oil over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally to separate slices into rings. Add vinegar. Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
3. Stir in tomato sauce, serrano peppers, thyme, molasses, the water, and salt. Bring to boiling. Add the chicken, stirring gently to coat. Heat through. Serve on split rolls with pickles. Makes 6 sandwiches.
