BBQ Chicken on Homemade King Sized Buns


Here is the meal put together on a plate. Everything is homemade except the potato chips, which are Cape Cod 40% reduced fat.

I had a salad on the side as well.


Fresh from the oven! Nice and golden without being dry. They will be wrapped in foil after most of the oven heat has left them, to retain moisture content. A soft, warm bun always seems nice.

King Sized Buns Recipe

Using this recipe, make eight large rolls.

Follow your own bread machine instructions, but this is how mine works. You can also mix this with a mixer, as the dough is fairly soft.

Use the dough cycle only, this is a fluffy dough and will expand out of your bread pan, so be aware that this is not a problem. It was cooked in a 2.5 lb pan. For a smaller pan, half the recipe which will make fewer buns.

In this order:

2 cups very warm water

2-3 tbls oil

2-3 tbls sugar

Let the yeast start reacting with the water and getting a bit foamy.

Add 5 cups flour (I prefer Betty Crocker's Better for Bread flour)

Set the machine to dough. When it is finished, dump the dough out onto a greased surface. I use a greased pizza pan. Pat the dough out to about ½ inch thickness and cut with a large biscuit cutter.


With this dough, adding grease such as a buttered flavored spray, onto your hands, works better than adding flour. Many bread recipes say to knead on a floured surface with floured hands but doing that with this recipe will make your buns a bit chewy.

Carefully work the dough back into a shape to cut more buns,carefully placing the cut dough onto another greased pizza pan or cookie sheet, whatever you have. Place the pans in a warm place and allow to double in size. Since the dough is softer than typical bread dough, it will spread out instead of getting taller so leave plenty of room between buns.

Bake at 425*F until golden brown and sound hollow when thumped, about 15 minutes,depending on your oven.

When cool slice open.

Filling The Buns

Now that you have the king sized buns, you need the chicken and barbeque sauce. You can roast a whole chicken and pull the meat off the bone or cook up some boneless chicken breasts. I like to boil my chicken breasts until very tender and then shred in chunks. While your chicken is cooking, make the barbeque sauce:

Roasted Chicken

Roasted chicken makes an easy filling for sandwiches, not matter the size. Keep some chicken cooked up in your refrigerator or in the freezer for unexpected guests or a hectic day.

How to Roast

Roasting a chicken is easy!

Simply preheat your oven to 350 F. Place chicken in roasting pan and cook for 20 minutes per pound. Turn your heat up to 450 F and cook for 15-20 minutes longer to brown up the skin.

Pushing herbs under the skin prior to cooking adds flavor.

Baste with herb butter before browning chicken.

Baste with barbeque sauce when almost done, allowing sauce to cook onto chicken before serving.

Chicken is a very user friendly product and can be changed in so many ways. Make sure you cook the bird thoroughly and enjoy the possibilities!

Peach Schnapp's BBQ Sauce


See how the sauce leaves a mark on the bottom of the pan, with no liquid leaking? When you see the sauce NOT leave a trail, such as water from the tomato or Schnapps that is not incorporated well, you know your sauce is ready to eat.


I made this recipe one time when in a rush and finding myself out of my favorite barbeque sauce. This is now my favorite.

In a medium saucepan, combine:

1 cup brown sugar

1 can of crushed tomatoes

1 teaspoon chili powder

2 ounces Peach Schnapps

Bring to a boil, stirring often. Turn down heat and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until as thick as you like it.

Once the barbeque sauce is ready, stir some into your chicken until it is fully coated. At this point, you can eat as is, on your king sized buns, or heat the chicken/sauce mixture slightly to cause the sauce to soak into the meat better.


In the picture of this meal, there is also chip dip.

Chip Dip

1 cup Greek yogurt

½ container of Philadelphia Cream Cheese garden or chive, slightly warmed.

Combine the warmed cream cheese into the yogurt and stir well. This makes an easy, but very delicious dip.


This dip, when “loosened up” with a bit of milk, makes a very good salad dressing. You can also use dried onion, more yogurt than in this recipe and a bit of sour cream, let it sit over night so the flavors can meld, for a nice onion dip.


Add a Salad

I like to make up a salad with plenty of garden vegetables, olives, feta cheese, oregano, dill and some rosemary. Throw in some cherries, grape tomatoes and pickles for extra zing. Fresh, grated Parmesan cheese makes this salad recipe seem extra fancy.

Now your dinner is ready. Enjoy!

Throwing a Party

These buns are huge so work well if you are throwing a party. Simply cut the filled bun into several pieces for easy finger food.
