I am excited to partner with Rumiano Cheese again for this post just in time for Grilled Cheese Month! I entered this BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese recipe into the Rumiano Cheese Grilled Cheese Contest, and you should enter too! (More on the contest later)

So guys, Croatia and Slovenia were AMAZING. I knew they were beautiful countries from photos I’ve seen here and there, but I had no idea just how incredibly beautiful they were!! It also didn’t hurt that we had perfect weather most of the time – mid-70’s and clear skies during the day – it was like paradise! We visited several cities in Croatia along the coast of the Adriatic Sea and then spent a day in Zagreb. In Slovenia we visited Ljubljana and spent 2 nights in gorgeous Bled. Oh, and we took a day trip to Montenegro. It was such an incredible trip! I am highly recommending Croatia as a destination to everyone – it is like a cleaner, less crowded, cheaper Italy & Austria experience! I’ll add some photos to my {neglected} travel blog Nonstop from JFK whenever I sort through them all. 🙂

But now that we are back home, it’s back to real life – work, laundry, cleaning, cooking. Although I do actually miss cooking – as much as I like breakfast buffets with croissants and prosciutto (hey I am not complaining!!) I did miss being in the kitchen while we were on vacation.

I made this BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese with leftover chicken, and my oh my it came out so delicious. Rumiano Cheese was kind enough to provide me with cheese, and their organic, non-GMO mozzarella cheese was perfect in this sandwich. The BBQ chicken turned this sandwich into a complete meal. Or should I say a completely delicious meal. The BBQ sauce mixed in with the melted cheese was perfection, and Aldo kept telling me how good this sandwich was after every bite.

BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked chicken (thighs or breasts, or a combination of both)
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 4 slices bread
  • 4 thick slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  1. Shred the cooked chicken with two forks and mix it with your favorite BBQ sauce.
  2. Place a slice of mozzarella on two pieces of bread. Top each mozzarella slice with 1/2 cup of BBQ chicken, then place another mozzarella slice on top and finish off with another slice of bread.
  3. Preheat a large skillet and melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Place the sandwiches on the skillet. Place something heavy on top of the sandwiches to press them together (a smaller skillet with two cans of beans works great!). Cook on one side for about 5 minutes, or until the bread is toasted and the cheese starts to melt. Remove the sandwiches from the skillet, add the remaining butter to the skillet, and carefully flip sandwiches to cook the other side for about 5 minutes, or until the bread is toasted and the cheese has melted.
  4. Totally optional: If you wish, preheat a grill pan to high heat and place the sandwiches on the grill pan to get the nice grill marks.
  5. Slice in half and serve hot.
