Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This sandwich was so amazingly delicious. So much so that my husband asked if he could eat 3 or 4 more of them!

The flavor combinations in this sandwich go together so well. The barbecue sauce has a sweet smokey flavor to it with a subtle kick. The chipotle peppers add to that smokiness and give it a little bit more of a kick. Then you have the sweet pineapple to help balance out the spiciness. Such a delicious combination.

I used a chipotle honey barbecue sauce because I though it would go so well with this sandwich, but you can use any barbecue sauce.

Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Sandwich


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, diced
  • 3/4 cup chipotle honey barbecue sauce

  1. In a small saucepan mix together the chicken, chipotle peppers and barbecue sauce. Cook and stir over low heat until warm.
  2. Place some chicken on the bottom of the hamburger buns, top with some crushed pineapple, place a piece of cheese on top and cover with top half of bun.
