Utilize the Big Green Egg® to smoke chicken and add chipotle mayonnaise for the ultimate homemade sandwich.
Smoked Chicken Ingredients
3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
1 ½ Teaspoons of Dry Oregano
1 ½ Teaspoons of Onion Powder
1 ½ Teaspoons of Garlic Powder
1 ½ Teaspoons of Kosher Salt
1 Teaspoon of Ground Mustard
¼ Teaspoon of Ground Ginger
¼ Teaspoon of Chili Powder
¼ Teaspoon of Chipotle Powder
¼ Teaspoon of Paprika
6 Chicken Breasts
Mix the spices and herbs together in a small bowl. When the mixture appears to be uniform, rub it into each chicken breast separately. Make sure that all sides of the meat are covered. Once this step is complete, let the chicken breasts marinate for at least two hours. To achieve a more pronounced flavor, allow the meat to remain covered in the fridge for up to 48-hours.
When it is time to make the scrumptious chicken sandwiches, smoke the chicken on the Big Green Egg® for 2-hours or until the chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). After the chicken breasts are cooked to perfection, wrap each one in aluminum foil and wait at least 30 minutes before cutting them into sandwich size proportions.
