Pulled Chicken Sandwiches and Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

Katie:  I wanted to try something different that might appeal to a certain fast food fan, so I found this recipe for pulled chicken sandwiches.  I replaced the ketchup with tomato sauce and a little honey to try to make it a little healthier.  I had to almost double the amount of tomato sauce, since the mixture was too dry at first.  I decided to try making my own buns using this recipe for whole wheat buns.  As sides, I made roasted sweet potato wedges and roasted carrots with honey.  It was a good meal!  I think next time I would use a different recipe for the buns, since they were kind of dry, but I would use the other recipes again.

Update:  In order to have enough buns for leftovers this week I tried using this recipe.  I cut the recipe in half and used part whole wheat flour and part all-purpose flour.  They turned out much lighter than the first recipe I tried.

  3. She even made a second batch of buns for dinner today. And the second kind was even better than the original ones. Well done Katie – awesome job my little cook fairy ;)

  4. The whole meal sounds really good! We’ll have to try it!
