Barbeque Pulled Chicken and Homemade Buns, Hun


Now these are some good buns, hun (it had to be said)! My latest bread machine creation is a winner, so I just had to brag a bit, but I’m also sharing one of my favorite go-to recipes with all of you so please forgive me for being so pleased with myself. I just get super excited when a new recipe tastes like it should when it comes from my kitchen. . . sad, I know.

I made hamburger buns using the dough-only setting on my bread machine and came up with some of the tastiest (fresh and preservative-free) buns we’ve ever had in this house. So a couple of them were a little large, but most of them turned out like. . . well, buns; and when I added my barbeque pulled chicken into the mix a delicious family-pleasing meal was born.

You can print the chicken recipe below; but first, here’s a quick how-to for the buns. I used the Butter Roll recipe that came with my bread machine using the dough-only option so that everything mixed together properly but didn’t cook. I then shaped the buns by pulling apart small wads of dough and making bun-shaped rolls on a piece of parchment paper. I let the buns rise and then cooked them at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. When they were done, I sliced them in half and stored the leftovers in the refrigerator. . . and the tuna salad I had on a bun a couple of days later was also delicious.

Okay, so the buns were a bonus, but here’s the best part of this meal — the barbeque pulled chicken. I discovered this recipe a couple of years ago and have tweaked it a bit along the way. My family loves this stuff and it’s also easy to whip up a large batch when people are coming for dinner. So here’s the recipe. I hope you enjoy!
