I adore the combination of chicken and barbecue sauce. Some variation of that combination is what I make when I’m feeling uninspired come supper time.

This particular recipe is a tweak of my sloppy Joe recipe and came about when I had planned on making sloppy Joes only to discover the ground beef I thought was in the freezer had been used. I did, however, have some chicken breasts in the freezer. So I swapped the ketchup called for in the original recipe for barbecue sauce and a new family favorite was born.
