  • 3 cups cooked chicken , shredded (I use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese , divided
  • 1/4 red onion , chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro , chopped
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce , divided
  • 1 baguette crusty bread


  • To a large mixing bowl, add chicken, 1 1/4 cups mozzarella cheese, onion, cilantro, and 1/2 cup of barbecue sauce. Stir well to combine. 
  • Add a tiny bit more barbecue sauce if the mixture seems too dry.
  • Cut the top edge of the bread loaf off and hollow out 1 1/2 inches deep to create a well for the filling. 
  • Spoon the BBQ chicken mixture into the loaf. 
  • Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese. Drizzle with remaining BBQ sauce.
  • Place on a baking tray and bake at 325 F degrees for about 20 minutes or until warmed through.
