Serves: 4
  • 5 chicken breasts, sliced

  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1 Package Havarti sliced cheese
  • 1 cube garlic butter
  • 1 loaf artisan bread, sliced
  1. Slice chicken into even pieces, an inch or two wide, so it will cook more quickly.
  2. Add 2 Tablespoons olive oil to skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and onion. Sprinkle paprika and Worcestershire sauce over the chicken. Add barbecue sauce and cover the pan. Bring to simmer and cook until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Remove chicken and shred with two forks, then return to the pan and stir well.
  4. Melt garlic butter in the microwave, use 15 second intervals until completely melted.
  5. Lay bread slices on a cookie sheet or other flat surface and brush with melted butter. Turn slices over so buttered side is down.
  6. On half of the slices place a slice of cheese. On the other half of the slices evenly distribute the chicken mixture.
  7. Place the slice with cheese butter side facing you on the slice with chicken and buttered side down to form a sandwich.
  8. Cook sandwiches in a skillet or griddle over medium heat until both sides are golden brown.
