Open Faced BBQ Chicken Sandwich are a great addition to any weekly menu!  Simple to prepare, hearty, and comforting on a cold night.  These open-faced sandwiches are very flavorful; crispy toast, melted cheese, BBQ rotisserie chicken that’s piled high, what’s not to love?  They are yummy and come together in about 20 minutes (including prep and cook time).

The recipe can be found here.

Start by removing the rotisserie chicken from the bone.  Shred it and set aside.  You will only need about ½ the rotisserie chicken for this recipe.  The recipe makes enough for 4 open-faced sandwiches.  If you need more than 4, adjust the ingredients accordingly.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent.  Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, until fragrant.

Add the paprika and Worcestershire sauce.  Stir to combine.  Add the shredded chicken and BBQ sauce (any brand or flavor of your choice) and stir to combine.  Continue to heat for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is heated through.

Once the oven is preheated (most likely why you are in the middle of making the sauce), place the Texas toast on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes.  You want to follow the package instruction for baking.  I find that 8 minutes provides crispy bread and is the perfect time for the consistency I want.  Remove the toast from the oven and divide the chicken mixture evenly between each piece of bread.  Top each with one slice of Havarti cheese (or substitute with Swiss cheese).

Return to the oven and bake for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Serve immediately, garnished with fresh chopped parsley (optional).  Enjoy!

It’s the perfect combination of garlic toast, tender chicken coated in savory BBQ sauce, and creamy Havarti cheese.  If you prefer to not serve these as open-faced sandwiches, simply bake additional slices of Texas toast to create sandwiches.

Happy Cooking!
