pulled chicken sandwiches - day 3

These are just perfect for a Friday night meal! Forget going out to eat tonight, whip this dish up and save yourself  $$ and calories all while pleasing the hubby and kids. They won't even know it's low-cal! That's my little secret anyway...

I found this recipe at  The calorie content is 284 calories/serving! Unbelievable.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

1/4 cup finely chopped onion
8 oz. can can tomato sauce
2 T. tomato paste
1 T. Dijon-style mustard
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. honey 
I T. olive oil
2 cups shredded chicken
6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
red onion slices
dill pickle spears

Prepare barbecue sauce: In medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion, cook 3 to 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and honey. Bring to a boil, reducing heat. Simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes or until desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Combine barbecue sauce mixture with shredded chicken and distribute on hamburger buns. Top with red onion slices [optional] and garnish with dill pickle spears. I added a side of pinto beans for more fiber and fill!
