Grilled Shredded BBQ Chicken and Cheese Sandwich
This recipe uses a low sodium BBQ Sauce to make it a hearty and heart-healthy lunch option.
Recipe type: Sandwich
  • For the Low Sodium BBQ Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp no salt butter
  • 1 cup ketchup (Tip: 100% natural Hunt’s is actually lower than low sodium Heinz.)
  • ½ cup beer (You can use non-alcoholic beer as well. This helps to break down the acids in the ketchup.)
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup low sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 finely chopped small red sweet pepper
  • 1 tbsp steak sauce
  • For the Sandwich:
  • ½ cup shredded chicken breast
  • ¼ cup BBQ Sauce (you can use store-bought, but it raises the sodium content)
  • 1 slice mozzarella cheese
  • 1 slice colby jack cheese
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. Visit the original post on Insanity Is Not An Option for the recipe for Low Sodium BBQ Sauce or use a store-bought sauce if you aren't concerned with the sodium content.
  3. Mix shredded chicken and BBQ sauce together.
  4. Brush outer sides of both pieces of bread with avocado oil.
  5. In a frying pan, layer one slice of bread oil side down, then one slice of cheese, then shredded BBQ chicken, then the other slice of cheese, and finally the other slice of bread oil side up.
  6. Cook over medium-low heat on one side for about 5 minutes, flip and cook for 5 minutes on the other side.
