WHITE BBQ CHICKEN SUB SANDWICH
I’m sitting here, writing about this tasty sub sandwich and stress eating popcorn. Why am I stress eating? Well, today was the first day of back to school for my little guy and it felt like the first day of school ever. You know how hard it is to send your babies to school for the first time and today, I feel like I was reliving it again.
This is a whole new school for us and a whole new process. Today, I was introduced to the car drop-off process and after being able to walk him to class for the last 3 years, it was a little tough on both of us.
I had tears in my eyes as I was driving away after he was asking me to walk with him and I couldn’t, and there are other cars around so it’s not like I can linger and see if he will go in with the teacher. It was just heartbreaking! (Lot’s of tears just remembering his face.)
Now, I’m anxiously waiting for the pick up time and keeping myself busy. May be I’ll go and bake a few cakes while I’m at it. It will be a “first day of school stress” bake off! Lot’s of cakes and everything must go. Or, may be I will just keeping sitting in one spot, stress eating my popcorn…
Whether I keep munching on popcorn or not, I know I will be needing my White BBQ Sub sandwich today. It truly is my favorite sandwich. I have two favorites when it comes to subs and it’s Hot Italian Sub and and White BBQ Chicken Sub.
A local sandwich shop introduced me to it and I fell in love at first bite. I get it at the shop often but I love recreating my favorites at home and just the way I like it. Being able to make what you love at home is always nice and I love being able to share the recipes so other can do it too!

What is creole mustard? Can it be homemade?
Yes u can . I found the recipe for it on pinterest.
I made this for Thirsty Thursday, it was a big hit! Thank you
One of our fav recipes ever! I made it last night, topped with sliced peppadew peppers. Today for football food, I added a block of cream cheese, some more horseradish,mustard, and shredded cheese, then baked for a hot dip. Absolutely divine!
That sounds so good! I am so glad you like it! 🙂
My whole picky family loved the subs. I couldn’t find Creole mustard so I used stone ground instead. I will definitely find other uses for the BBQ sauce. It is absolutely delicious!!
I am so glad you liked it! Thanks for stopping by and letting me know.
One of our favorites after finding it here!
Thank you, Emily! We are so glad you like it!
This recipe made my day. Loved it And that sauce is remarkable. Simple words for this recipe is delicious.
Wow! This is amazing! The sauce is the star of this recipe and it all goes so well together. Well done!
I served it with tots as I have 3 small kids. I also used Tyson’s grilled shredded chicken to make it somewhat easier. Soooo good!
I am so glad you liked it, my husband is obsessed with this sauce as well! 🙂
Delicious!! I loved it!! My question (because I never make notes) is can you give a weight for the chicken? Like is it 1/2 pound of chicken tenders? I rarely buy tenders and just use chicken breasts. So just wondering???
I am so glad you liked it!! Each pack varies but are usually between 6-7 tenders and they are anywhere from 1.07 pounds and 1.25 pounds so that is what you would need to look for when purchasing them.
Was delish!! Could use a touch more tang…..but will definitely make this again!
Glad you liked it!
Made this for dinner tonight. My husband said it was the best chicken sandwich he’s ever eaten, to save the recipe! So it’s a hit at our house! Thank you so much for sharing.
Hi, Sherry! Thank you for letting me know you liked it 🙂
