A large baguette filled with BBQ Chicken being cut into slices.I’m not sure if anyone has noticed my lack of new posts over the last two weeks. I’ve haven’t been feeling well and cooking has been particularly difficult. But I’m happy to report that there shouldn’t be any more lapse in my posts–I’m back! And I’m excited to share tons of new and delicious recipes with you all–starting with this BBQ Chicken Stuffed Bread.

I love meals like this BBQ Chicken Stuffed Bread that only take a few minutes to throw together and you can guarantee your family will love it!

It’s the same idea as my Artichoke Dip Stuffed Bread recipe I posted a few months ago that has been really popular. Both recipes work great for party appetizers or for a fun and easy dinner idea. Use rotisserie chicken to make this recipe even simpler.
