Strawberry BBQ Cilantro Chicken Sandwiches

Strawberry BBQ Cilantro Chicken Sandwiches

The combination of strawberries, BBQ sauce & cilantro is amazing. Summer is sandwich & salad time, you can’t go wrong with one of those.  I was craving BBQ pork but in a last-minute decision at the store, I grabbed some chicken instead. This sandwich would be equally amazing with pork too.

I had heard of strawberry BBQ sauce before & my mom had just given me some berries from their patch so I decided to get creative & add a little sweetness to my BBQ sauce. The cilantro was an after thought & it was just what my sandwich needed!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A sweet & tangy summer sandwich packed with flavor.
Serves: 4 sandwiches
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (I used honey BBQ to keep up with the sweet trend)
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • 4 sandwich buns
  1. Boil the chicken breasts for 10 minutes until it is fully cooked.
  2. Remove from heat, allow to cool & chop it with a knife or shred with your fingers & set aside.
  3. Add BBQ sauce, strawberries & cilantro to a skillet. If your strawberries are large, quarter or halve them. Mine were very tiny so I left them whole & halved a couple of the bigger ones.
  4. Slowly heat the BBQ sauce, stirring occasionally. Once the strawberries are soft & cooked remove from heat.
  5. Add the chicken to the strawberry BBQ sauce, mix well.
  6. Serve hot on toasted buns & garnish with cilantro.
