Shredded BBQ Chicken Burgers


Homemade burger buns topped with BBQ shredded chicken.



  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 1/2 cup flour
  • 0.25 ounces yeast, 2 teaspoons
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg


  • chicken to fill buns
  • salt
  • BBQ sauce
  • onions
  • additional optional toppings

1. Mix the milk, water, and butter in a pan and heat until slightly warm.

2. In a bowl mix 2 cups of flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add the warmed ingredients from above and add the egg and mix all together. Stir in the rest of the flour 1/2 a cup at a time, making sure it is all mixed in before adding the next portion. Knead the dough.

3. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape into smooth balls. Place on a baking sheet and let rise for 30-35 minutes.

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400° F (200° C) until golden brown.

1. Fill a pot with water and add a couple pinches of salt (like making spaghetti) heat until boiling and add chicken. Boil for 20+ minutes or until chicken is through.

2. In the meantime you can fry up some diced onions and place them in a bowl. When the chicken is finished shred it with two forks and add it to the bowl. Add the BBQ sauce to the chicken. If you want to keep the food warm for longer you can heat up the BBQ sauce first. Optionally you can also add garlic, a teaspoon of cider vinegar, and some extra spices to the BBQ sauce to pep it up. Mix it all up, cut the buns in half, and add a good portion to each.

3. From here you can add additional fillings to the burgers. Onions, thin carrot strips, coleslaw salad, spinach, salad leaves, green onions or anything else you can imagine.
