    Great recipe! I like it mainly because I don’t have time to make my own sauce and buying it from the store is faster. I substituted mashed potatoes instead of rice, but it was delicious!

    I love your recipes that use cooked shredded chicken so thought I should finally post a comment. We’re retired and live very close to our children so I cook supper for everyone regularly to have after work. It is hotter than hell here in Texas so the less prep & heating of the kitchen is appreciated. This dish of yours tastes like it required lots of work and everyone loves it, including the little ones. With so many delicious choices for bottled barbecue sauce here, I never make it anymore which adds to the convenience. Thanks so much for these delicious family recipes.
