My oldest loves root beer and ginger beer (non-alcoholic version) and one of his favorite breweries for them (yes, they are called breweries) is the Australian company Bundaberg. He was looking at their website one day and came across this recipe for pulled chicken sandwiches so we gave it a shot and it has become a favorite of his and mine! If you use a rotisserie chicken it is even faster and easier.
2 cups Bundaberg Ginger Beer (slightly more than one bottle)
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp 5-spice powder**
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 roast chicken, skin removed and meat shredded
This is pretty easy to put together! You add everything except for the chicken to a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Stir often and reduce to a simmer until thickened.
When the sauce reaches the thickness you desire, add in the chicken to warm through.
Serve warm on buns. We dove in so fast that I did not get a picture of my sandwich this time. I will next time for sure.
**The 5-spice was a little hard to find but I finally located it at Sprouts in the loose spices aisle. I was able to buy just a small amount. A store with a nice Asian food department would have it I am sure.
