A zesty, slow cooked chicken in a jerk marinade sandwiched in a french roll.

The perfect hands off sandwich is this pulled jerk chicken sandwich.

An amazing combination of sweet, savory and spicy. Just throw everything in to your slow cooker and leave it to slow cook and combine these flavors.

Topped with a sweet pineapple chutney, you will definitely be licking your fingers

I was not ready for this. I don't think you would be too. The burst of flavors from a bite of this one sandwich is going to make you do a dance. (I surely did).

There's something about bbq sauce, laced with some spicy jerk then topped with some sweet chutney that confuses the mind and then makes you do a happy dance.

And what's the best thing about this?

It's done in the slow cooker.


I prefer to use the Spicy jerk marinade in this recipe because I want it to be opposite of the sweetness of the chutney and with tanginess of the barbecue sauce.

 You are free to adjust the level if you wish

My go to brand for bbq sauce is Sweet Baby Ray's. They really have been able to provide the at home taste of an outside smoked sauce. A deep, intense flavor.

Other sauces I sometimes need to add in a bit more other spices to get that body I want.

Adding some additional flavor of jerk to this sauce really takes it over the top.

And it's going to be cooked, slow, blending flavors even more.

I have my own paste that I make, but please also feel free to grab a bottle of store bought seasoning.

Then you set it and walk away.

While this is doing it's own thing, go ahead and whip up some of that pineapple chutney that we need to top these sandwiches

Please don't skip it!! It doesn't take very long at all.

Now all we need to do, once everything is done, is layer up.

Can you sense my excitement?

Stop picking pieces of meat from the pot!!

Slap on some meat on a french roll, with sauce.

I prefer using french rolls for these types of sandwiches since they hold up well to weight.

It's also a bit crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Another good option would be a kaiser roll but I felt it was a bit too large.

Then add on some dollops of chutney

Grab a bib, and maybe some milk, because you know, it maybe too hot but you still going to eat through the spiciness.

And take a bite.

Pure comfort food.
