“This is a Pennsylvania Dutch-type recipe from my Mammy and my mother. I think I may have to tweak this a little bit but I hope this works for you! Note: This Barbecue does not have any "sauce" but has more of a broth surrounding tender chicken.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place your chicken (or turkey) in a pot and just cover with water.
  2. If you wish to add chicken bullion, do so at this point, otherwise, save any salt until the end or less your chicken may not be as tender.
  3. Bring to the boil over high heat, lower heat and simmer until the chicken is fully cooked, tender and falling apart, much like a pulled pork sandwich.
  4. Pull chicken apart into"strings", using two forks and return to broth.
  5. Add salt to taste.
  6. Serve, using a slotted spoon, on white rolls, as a hot sandwich.
  7. I believe this could be made with leftover turkey, white and dark meat chicken or turkey or any other number of ways.
  8. This is traditionally a very very plain dish/sandwich so I guess it's good for children if you leave out a lot of the salt.
