BBQ Chicken Sandwich with Parmesan Crusted Bun is easy to make with leftover chicken and the bun is epic with that parmesan crusting - no soggy bun here!
Start by heating up your griddle. My griddle takes about 6-8 minutes to heat up. You can also use a skillet, which should only take 2-4 minutes to heat.
Open your buns and spread the softened butter onto each side. Sprinkle with the grated parmesan cheese and then use a knife to spread the cheese into the butter.
Once the griddle or skillet is hot place buttered side down, and press lightly so the surface of the bun gets equal heat. Watch closely as it will only take 1-2 minutes for the bun to brown. I find that a thin-edged, metal spatula is the easiest way to keep that great parmesan crust intact.
Remove from heat and set aside.
Put your butter in a skillet and turn the heat to medium.
Add your shredded chicken to the melted butter.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir.
Add BBQ sauce and stir frequently.
Takes about 5 minutes to heat completely. Then turn off the heat.
Place the bottom parmesan crusted bun on a plate. Piled some bbq chicken on top. Drizzle with additional BBQ sauce if desired.
Add coleslaw if desired.
Finish with the top of the parmesan crusted bun.
