  •  2 cups thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices reduced-fat deli-style Cheddar cheese


Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 350°F/177°C.

Cook chicken 10-12 minutes per side, then toss in bowl with barbecue sauce until evenly coated.

Heat oil in Big Green Egg Stir-Fry and Paella Pan.

Add onion, brown sugar and thyme; cook 10 minutes or until onion is tender and lightly browned, stirring often. Remove from heat; stir in salt. Set aside.

Divide chicken and onion evenly over bread slices; top each with 1 cheese slice. Wrap each open- faced sandwich in heavy-duty foil forming a loose packet; seal all edges.

Add to cooking grid for 8 minutes or until heated through. Carefully open foil packets and drizzle with additional barbecue sauce, if desired.
