EASY Smokey Pulled Chicken Sandwich

This my dear readers is my easy lunch idea of the week. As I have said before; Taylor works now every night from 4pm to 10pm. Well 5 nights a week anyway. Great. I mean it is. But it sure makes it hard when I am so used to making big dinners. She comes down before work every day and needs some nutrition before heading off to the real world. A lot of times it isn't a problem. I try to make plenty of dinner, so that there are leftovers the next day for Randy, Taylor, Doris and Jordan at lunchtime. This can sometimes not happen though. I never know who is going to be here for dinner. Sometimes each kid brings a friend. I welcome this. I would much rather all the kids hang out here than somewhere else. So I don't complain. But sometimes my huge meal is being fought over and the next day, I find I need to whip something up for Tay before she leaves. Today was one of those days. Enter Jungle Heat smoke glaze sauce.  Gluten Free and great with meat and Vegetables. I have Chicken... perfect! Then I read about this couple that invented the sauce. Wow. I think Randy and I would really hit it off with them. Trip to Costa Rica... it is now on my list. Tropical honest true ingredients for a yummy sauce. It is Gluten free? NICE!!! They have four amazing culinary delights. BBQ, Hot Sauce , Glaze and Pepper Jelly. If you have not tried their sauce. Go to If your store does not carry them, ask for them.
Ok, now just smoked chicken won't be enough. Enter Amy's Gluten Free Sandwich Rounds.
Little Sandwhich disks of heaven. That is what Taylor calls them. These rolls are great. You can make mini pizza's or even pb&J. So easy to use and you would NEVER guess they are gluten free. I guess I hit the jackpot to find two gluten free products that make my life so much easier.  I made a pulled chicken sandwich in  hardly any time at all using the two products with some chicken.


Amy's bread rolls
1 lb chicken tenders

One hour prior to cooking put Chicken and 1/2 jar jungle heat smoke glaze into a ziplock bag and let marinade.

Preheat oven to 350.
In a skillet add 1/2 jar jungle heat smoke glaze and chicken breasts on high heat. Sear the chicken on each side until brown.

Pour all the sauce and chicken into an oven safe pan.
Cook for 20 minutes.
Pull out chicken and shred with 2 forks using a pulling motion.

Pour remaining sauce over chicken.

Spoon Chicken onto Amy's Bread Rolls. Place in the oven or toaster oven for 5 minutes on 350.

Yep, it is that easy!
I am sooooo loving that there are so many great gluten-free products available now!

  1. This looks so fantastic. I have done pulled pork, but never chicken. What a great idea.

  2. Hi, I'm new to your blog and found you through foodbuzz. I agree with the reader above--I had never thought about pulling chicken, duh. This looks really good and I will definitely be making this often.
