Quick BBQ Pulled Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Pin It
Pulled chicken is extremely simple to make and not too time consuming. I often make a lot of pulled chicken at once, then put all the leftovers in separate ziplock bags and freeze them for future use. You can then toss it with your favor BBQ sauce, some mayo to make chicken salad, enchilada sauce...possibilities are endless!
Or you can put it in a grilled cheese sandwich. Oh. My. YUM. I've learned that the trick to a perfect grilled cheese sandwich is to cook it low and slow. There have been many occasions where I have tried to rush the process only to end up with burnt bread and cold cheese. It's not worth it, so just take your time and you'll end up with a gooey, cheesy masterpiece. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

Makes 2 sandwiches
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbsp. butter, divided
  • 4 slices bread
  • 1 cup Mexican blend cheese, shredded
Add the water to a large saucepan. Add the chicken and boil for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and transfer to a cutting board. Allow to cool slightly. Use two forks to shred the chicken. 

Add the chicken back to the saucepan over low heat. Add the BBQ sauce and cook just until warm.

Add 1/2 tbsp. butter to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place two pieces of bread in the skillet. Top each with 1/4 cup cheese, half of the chicken mixture, then the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Top each with a slice of bread. 

Cook sandwich for 3-4 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and bread is golden brown. Add remaining 1/2 tbsp. of butter to the skillet and flip over each sandwich. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and the other side is golden brown. Serve immediately.
