I got home tonight and didn't feel like making what I had planned, so I searched chicken sandwiches and came up with this. I had a pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts so I sprinkled them with salt, pepper, hot smoked paprika and garlic powder and baked them. When they were just about done I shredded the chicken and then added it to the sauce that had been cooking for about 8 minutes. I cooked it another 10 minutes or so and served it on buns. I skipped the slaw since I didn't have it in the house. The sauce had a great tang to it. Anyway, I recommend it!
