  • 3 cups cooked and shredded chicken I used one small rotisserie chicken

  • 4 TBSP butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste

  • In the meantime, slice your french bread lengthwise in half, place on baking sheet.
  • Butter each side and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Place bread under broiler until hot and edges just begin to toast, remove from broiler.
  • Top each half with sliced cheese.
  • Top one half of bread with the BBQ sauced chicken.
