One Pot Chicago Style Bourbon BBQ Chicken & A Miami Onion Bun

I realize there is a stark contrast here, Chicago & Miami, well Weather Wise, but I decided to blend the two and the taste is phenomenal. Who needs warm weather and a grill to have BBQ Chicken Sandwiches?? Not me!! I am a native Chicagoan, with Some Bourbon, and a Dutch Oven. As a Chicagoan, come August, majority of us want the same things, Football, Cooler Weather, Boots, Sweaters & Jeans, and Indoor meals….. AND just like that come January, we are craving for the Warmth of the Sun, Shorts, T-Shirts, and some BBQ. I promise you will love this Easy, One Pot, Chicago Style Bourbon BBQ Chicken Sandwich on Miami Onion Bread….Enjoy!!!


Bourbon Chicken Rub
Making the Sauce
Making the Sandwich/Garnish
  • 1 Head Cabbage The high polyphenol content in cabbage might reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing platelet buildup and reducing blood pressure.
  • 1 Avocado Adding an avocado to your daily diet may help lower bad cholesterol, in turn reducing risk for heart disease, according to health researchers.
  • 1 Jar Pickles
  • 1 Sliced Red Onion
  • 1 Bag Purple Brussel Sprouts Purple Brussel Sprouts are slightly nutty and have a much sweeter flavor than their green counterparts. They are high in fiber and antioxidants which are both imperative for great heart health.
  • 1 Package Onion Rolls


Cooking the Chicken
  1. First, make your rub and coat your chicken thighs. Cover and place in the refrigerator for one hour.
  2. Next, remove from the refrigerator. Then, in a Dutch Oven, add your olive oil, garlic, onion, and chicken and sear each side for two minutes on high. Then, add your bourbon and reduce to a low heat.
  3. Cook for 25 minutes on low then add your bbq sauce and flour and stir then cover. Cook an additional 20-25 minutes, stirring at least once or twice.
  4. The total time should be 45-50 minutes, remove from heat, and cool a bit. Then remove the chicken from the pot and shred.
  5. Layering your sandwich from the bottom bread, cabbage, chicken, pickles, avocado, red onions, and top with grated cheddar cheese.....So Delicious...Enjoy!!!
Purple Brussel Sprouts
