"Perfect for leftover chicken. Add a few vegetables, a spicy BBQ sauce, chicken, and of course "gooey" mozzarella cheese; and you have a perfect lunch, snack or a light dinner. I love to serve this with a bowl of soup for a quick easy dinner."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Baguette ... Toast the baguettes until golden brown. Set to the side, they don't need to be warm.

Step 2

Chicken, Onions and Mushrooms ... In a medium size saute pan, add the olive oil and bring to medium high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and saute until tender and golden brown; about 5-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add in the chicken (sliced or diced) and cook another minute or two, just to warm the chicken. Then transfer to a small bowl and set to the side.

Step 3

BBQ Sauce ... Add the BBQ sauce, honey, chipotles and garlic to a small bowl and mix well.

Step 4

Sandwich ... Top the toasted baguette with a tablespoon of the BBQ sauce, then the chicken, onions and mushrooms. Finish with 2 slices of cheese per sandwich - I used mozzarella, but provolone is a great substitute or even monterey jack or swiss.

Step 5

Broil ... Broiler on, second shelf down. You don't want the cheese or sandwich to burn, and you want the sandwich to warm up a bit. Five (5) to 7 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Step 6

Serve ... Just ENJOY! Serve this for lunch, cut into small bites for an appetizer, or make as 1 large baguette and cut into serving sizes for family style - it is a very flexible recipe. I love this sandwich and a bowl of soup for dinner.

I made almost as is the only difference is I used more mushrooms and I used 6 inch individual french breads for complete sandwich. Thanks for a great recipe I will use again. So good I rarely not change something. and this is allmost as-is This would be a great way to use up some of the left over turkey
