I need to thank another blogger for this idea... It came from one of my favorites, Mary from ONE PERFECT BITE. One Perfect Bite is a fantastic blog. Mary has been posting for years and has never missed a day (at least in the last 5 years i have been following). But she is so much more than just prolific, she is also a font of great recipes, and cooking knowledge. Someday i hope to grow up and be Mary!
But in the mean time, I am always thrilled to get an idea or two from her. Like her recent post of "Left over Turkey? Try Sweet Sloppy
I have a feeling that my recipe and Mary's taste quite a bit different, so if you are interested in trying something like this yourself, take a look at hers and pick what you like...

A BIG thanks to Mary for the idea for this recipe. Mine would have been more spicy than sweet, with the addition of the Ro-Tel Tomatoes and their spices. I also used BBQ sauce in place of ketchup. And you know what they say, individual tastes, I was in the mood for something spicy.
I served mine for dinner. I added a side dish of Smashed Baked Potatoes with Chicken and Mustard Vinaigrette. The spicy sandwich and the sweet taste of the mustard vinaigrette really made for a party in my mouth!
It really does all come together quickly... not even a 30 minute meal. 5 minutes hands on cooking in a crock pot. Even easier if you use one of my beloved Store Bought, Pre-cooked, Pre-seasoned Rotisserie Chicken.
And of course the Rotisserie Chicken makes this fast and easy to make. Making this the next Joker in the deck to my "52 Uses For a Rotisserie Chicken", Now 54 recipe and growing! A Great sandwich and
what could be easier and tastier?
And as always, if you like this recipe and think you might want to give it a try, pin this to your Pinterest Board and be sure to follow me on Pinterest if you want to see the rest of my 52 Ideas!
