Baked BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Sub


I wanted something easy and quick for supper and I had some fresh pineapple and chicken tenders in the fridge that needed to be used. I had picked up Baguette loaf at the grocery store for another purpose but decided to use it for this instead. It turned out very tasty and went well with a salad for a reasonably quick meal.  I sauteed the chicken in olive oil with peppers and onions for flavor but removed the veggies before assembling the sandwich because this is how my family prefers it, but it would be wonderful with green and red peppers and sweet onions along with the pineapple. Yum!

chicken tenders, cut into 1 inch pieces
onions
pepper strips
olive oil
fresh pineapple chunks
1 clove garlic, minced
Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning
sea salt
Sweet Baby Rays Original BBQ Sauce
Cheese of your choice
1 Baguette Loaf

Saute' veggies in oil for a few minutes then add the chicken and cook until no longer pink, stirring occasionally to keep from sticking. Drain. Add a bit more olive oil to the pan and saute' the pineapple and garlic then add the chicken and coarsely chop.


 
Add the seasonings and BBQ sauce (just enough to make the mixture stick together), Cut the Bauette in half, I kinda cut a v into it, put a layer of cheese on the inside.Pile on the chicken mixture the top with more cheese and the bread top.

Bake, covered, at 350° until heated through and the cheese is melted. Approximately 20-25 minutes.

Cut ito serving size pieces and serve with extra BBQ sauce.

  5. What a lovely sandwich. I know I'd love it, but like you, I'd want to serve it with the peppers. It's a shame your family doesn't enjoy them. Ah, well! Life would be boring indeed if we all liked the same things :-). I hope you have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary
