BBQ Baked Chicken and Beans


While my stomach was out of commission, my boys' were not. My oldest who is 4 has been asking for sloppy joes lately, and while these aren't exactly sloppy joe's, they are a close cousin. This is a great way to use up leftover chicken meat.

Pulled chicken meat (I had 3/4 chicken left over from the crockpot chicken dinner)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 cans (14 oz) beans in tomato sauce
1/2 cup BBQ sauce of your choice (I used the Chicken and Ribs flavour)
Hamburger Buns

Pre-heat oven to 300*. Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add the chicken meat, onion, beans and BBQ sauce in and mix together well. Let bake for about an hour and a half. Scoop onto hamburger buns to serve.

My husband changed his a bit for his second helping to make it less kid friendly (a little more kick). He toasted his bun, added some mayonnaise, some Frank's Red Hot Pepper Sauce and some cheddar cheese. He declared them good before, perfect with his additions.

Hope you're feeling better.

I love making pulled meat sandwiches with lefover chicken, pork and beef. Great way to be frugal and the kids love it.

A perfect family meal! Not only would my kids (now grown) still gobble that up - but my husband would adore it. Love the recipe.
