Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with Pickles

I had my son make dinner the other night. It was a simple meal of Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with a salad and vegetable. When he told me what he wanted to do with the sandwiches I was a bit skeptical. But, it was his meal so…. he rolls with some of my crazy ideas so I guess I would roll with his. He wanted barbecue sauce, sharp cheddar cheese and pickles on the sandwiches. Okay?


They were so good! We all kind of looked at the sandwiches thinking it this going to be awful but nope it was good. The more we talked about it and ate we realized the barbecue sauce is a vinegar base and the pickles are a vinegar base so it makes sense that they go together.

A green salad and vegetable completed the meal.
