I often profess my love for sandwiches. There are so many sandwich combinations you can make that it would really be hard to tire of them. Summer is also a great time to have sandwich fixings on hand for quick lunches or dinners in between trips to the lake or pool.

What craft beer pairs well with BBQ Chicken & Bacon Sandwiches:
The beer: Floridian Hefeweizen from Funky Buddha.
I fell in LOVE with this one while we were down in Florida on vacation. It’s a light drinkable beer that’s full of citrus notes and is similar to the blonde styles that I love so much.
What should I watch on TV while eating a sandwich?
Of course, this Mitten Movie Night HAS to be all about binging Stranger Things. While I didn’t make an Indiana Themed menu as I did for Season One, this chicken sandwich is tasty no matter where you live.
How to make BBQ Chicken & Bacon Sandwiches:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
This recipe uses already cooked chicken breasts. Cooking up a few in the crock-pot then shredding is a quick meal must!
On a sheet pan split 6 brioche hamburger buns in half. Butter the tops and place face down on one half of the pan. Place the bottom half on the plan and spread the shredded cheese evenly between the 6 bottom sides.
Top with the precooked shredded chicken, splitting the chicken evenly over the bottoms.
Place in the oven and bake 12 minutes.
Cook the bacon to the desired doneness then remove and drain on a paper towel covered plate.
Quick Coleslaw Recipe:
In a small bowl combine the coleslaw mixture, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard and sugar.
Making it up to a half hour early and placing in the refrigerator makes sure all the flavors meld together beautifully.
Coleslaw makes for a great BBQ chicken sandwich topping. It’s creamy and crunchy and best of all, easy to make. Placing homemade coleslaw on top of a sandwich takes you to pinnacle sandwich Nirvana.
Now it’s time to assemble these BBQ Chicken Sandwich with coleslaw.
Top the baked bottom half of the sandwich with BBQ sauce of your choice. Add the coleslaw. Now the bacon. Finally, more BBQ Sauce.
