Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

This is a great recipe for a busy evening, as long as you can get your hands on a roasted chicken. It was really easy and everyone liked it.  The recipe came from the September issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

1  1.75-2 lb purchased roasted chicken
1 med. onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 T. olive oil
1/3 c. cider or white wine vinegar
1/2 c. tomato sauce
2 T. molasses
3-4 T. seeded and finely chopped fresh red and/or green serrano chile peppers*
2 T. snipped fresh thyme
2 T. water
1/2 t. salt

6 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns

Cut the meat from the chicken, discard bones and skin. Use two forks to shred.
In a large skillet, cook onion in hot olive oil. Use medium heat and cook about 5 min.
Add vinegar and cook and stir 1 min. more.
Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Add chicken and stir gently to coat.
Serve on rolls with sweet pickles.

*I used long thin slices of sweet bell peppers instead of chopped chili peppers--tasted great!
