Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

What do you do when you just have one chicken leg in the freezer but you have two mouths to feed?

Simple: Make chicken soup for hubby then shred the chicken to make sandwiches 🙂


Pre cooked chicken leg – I had boiled it in water with onions, garlic and ginger

3 brown bread buns halved

2 tomatoes sliced

1 cucumber sliced

1 garlic clove halved

Mozzarella cheese slices

Tomato sauce


This sandwich is pretty simple to do and gets ready in under 15 minutes, well if you had pre-cooked the chicken.

Start by pulling the chicken meat from the bone, hence pulled chicken.

Tada, chicken shreds.

Now, prepare the buns to get ready to assemble the sandwich.

plain looking buns

Apply margarine on both halves, then toast them in a hot skillet for about 3 minutes or until they are crispy.

not so plain looking buns

Rub the garlic halves on the crispy side to just give the bread a light garlic taste.

Now, we are ready to assemble.

cucumber slices,tomato slices and mozzarella slices

Start by putting the cheese slices on one half.

Microwave for about 30 seconds to melt the cheese.

Pile on the remaining ingredients.

Add the tomatoes.

Add the chicken shreds.

almost done 🙂

Finally top off with the cucumber, then put the tomato sauce. In case you have mayonnaise you can also put that.

excuse the shadow

Dinner is served.

  1. I love the new look of the blog…and this recipe. Was introduced to the blog by Judy Munyu and I am one fierce follower Ubarikiwe sana!

  2. Hi I just discovered this blog when I stumbled on it, as one of the nominees for BAKE Awards. and I have been so glued .I like everything about your blog, the presentation especially makes things easier to understand. so yesterday I decided to try this recipe , and since I also don’t have a toaster I did it as you did, but the problem was that the bread was sticking on the pan as I was toasting. how can I avoid this despite that, oooh the outcome was marvellous. Thank you big .

    1. Aww, than k you Jackie you are too kind. I applied some margarine, it helps in the browning/ toasting of the bread plus eliminates the stickiness. Also ensure your pan is hot enough and not wet.
