pulled chicken sandwich

I am always looking for solid, go to, easy, healthy, everyone will enjoy meals.  These sandwiches fit the bill.  They are so easy to make.  You can even make them while feeding a baby and monitoring a paint project with your three year old.  That is how easy they are. I had my pulled chicken over a salad.  The boys enjoyed them as sandwiches on rolls with potato wedges and melon.  Nothing fancy but, it is an easy weeknight meal I know the family will love.
