Recipe: Jim Beam Bourbon BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with Blue Cheese and Apple Salad

Prepare ahead for the weekend with this BBQ shredded chicken recipe. Monday's will be far improved when you get to take a leftover sandwich to work.

In order to mark the release of Jim Beam's Original Bourbon Sauce to the UK market I created this simple recipe. Its now time for us Brits to get a taste of the Americana at home.

Think ribs, wings, brisket, pulled pork, baked beans and sandwiches; Jim Beam is your guy.

I roasted a whole chicken and then shredded it when cooled. Feel free to use a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket if you need to save a little time.

Jim Beam's Original Bourbon Sauce will be in Sainsbury's from 29th June.

    I guess I don't need to go back home for BBQ now? That sandwich looks crazy good. I am officially hangry.

  3. Oh My Lord. There's only one thing missing alongside this sandwich and that is beer. Or a cheeky bourbon cocktail.

  6. I did not prepare ahead. I do not have a Jim Beam sandwich to take to work with me on Monday. I'm going to have to eat sober food. My life sucks.

    1. Your life does not have toast and salad for breakfast!
