Pulled Chicken on Homemade Buns





This meal was really enjoyed by my family... it was pulled chicken... cooked all day in the crockpot......... and served on homemade buns. What a great entree!   :)


First, I made a batch of bread dough and as I usually do, I used this recipe:

Basic Homemade Bread Recipe

After the bread is mixed and raised in the bowl, I spooned out some globs of dough onto the greased cookie sheets.

Working with each glob... I flattened and stretched them out forming round circles of dough.


We were hurrying and these are not perfectly round, but they tasted great! 


I sprinkled sesame seeds on the tops and pressed them gently into the dough. 


Next, they need to rise for the second time... and they do this on the cookie sheet. 

Here they are about ready to put into the oven. 
  Here is the pulled chicken....  I cooked many pounds of chicken breast the day before and I did it similar to this:

Strange Marinades For Chicken

The marinades I used, though, were from rinsing out the bottles of ranch dressing, asian dressing, ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce. :)  It was nice to get the condiments cleaned out.  There was a lot of broth on the chicken and I pulled it apart and allowed it to soak up all of that wonderful juice. The next day (the day we had Pulled Chicken on homemade buns), I poured lots of BBQ sauce on it and let it simmer all day long. It smelled WONDERFUL!  :)
 Here are the buns in the oven...  baked at 375 degrees for about
20-25 minutes.

  Just check to be sure they are done, but not burned.

 When the buns come out of the oven, cover them with a dishtowel right away to keep them nice and soft.

After a few minutes, slice each bun in half.  You can see that my buns are rather thin... this is on purpose, but if you like thicker buns... just use more dough and don't press it as flat. 

 After they are all sliced, they can be covered back up until you are ready to put the meat on them.


Here, the buns are open and ready to load up with meat. 

Here's the pulled chicken on the bottom part of the bun... looks good. :) 



Below is a plate of sandwiches all ready to eat.  We had a salad and chips with the meal. Yum. This was enjoyed by all... and we will be making this again!  :)

    1. It really is... I love the homemade rolls because there is something in store-bought breads/rolls that just doesn't taste "right" to me... plus, I know these are better for us... and they taste so good...and that pulled chicken was wonderful. :) I hope you like the bread recipe also... it is so adaptable.
