Ingredients:



Instructions:

  1. Season the Chicken:

  • Start by generously seasoning both sides of the chicken breasts with Sweet Preacher seasoning. This blend of spices will add a flavorful kick to your chicken, making it the star of the dish.


Tip: Let the seasoned chicken rest for a few minutes before grilling to allow the seasoning to penetrate the meat.




2. Grill the Chicken:

Tip: Always preheat your grill for at least 10-15 minutes before cooking. This ensures that the grill grates are hot enough to sear the food properly.


  • Preheat your Kokomo Grill to medium-high heat. Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F. This typically takes about 6-7 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts.


  • Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before chopping it into bite-sized pieces.



3. Prepare the French Bread:

  • Cut the French bread loaf in half lengthwise. Spread softened garlic butter evenly on the cut sides of the bread.


  • Place the bread, cut side down, on the grill and toast until it is lightly browned and has beautiful grill marks.


4. Assemble the French Bread:



  • Add the chopped grilled chicken on top of the cheese. Then, sprinkle crispy bacon pieces over the chicken for an extra crunch and smoky flavor.

  • Add diced red onion on top of the bacon. The onions provide a slight bite and sweetness that balances the dish.


Tip: Diced red onion adds a great bite, but feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or jalapeños.


  • Finally, top everything with shredded mozzarella cheese, which will melt into a gooey, delicious layer.



5. Melt the Cheese:

  • Place the assembled bread back on the grill, using indirect heat (not directly over the flames). Close the grill lid and cook until the cheese is fully melted and bubbly. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes.



6. Finish and Serve:

  • Once the cheese is melted, remove the French bread from the grill. Drizzle homemade ranch dressing and additional BBQ sauce on top for extra flavor.

  • Cut the bread into shareable pieces and serve hot.



Extra Tips for the Perfect BBQ Chicken French Bread:

  • Homemade Garlic Butter: For an extra burst of flavor, make your own garlic butter by mixing softened butter with minced garlic, parsley, and a pinch of salt.

  • Bacon: Cook your bacon until it's extra crispy. This will add a delightful crunch to every bite.

  • Cheese: Feel free to experiment with different cheeses. A mix of sharp cheddar and creamy mozzarella works wonderfully, but you can also try gouda or provolone for a unique twist.

  • Vegetables: Add some fresh vegetables like sliced bell peppers or jalapeños for an extra layer of flavor and a bit of heat.
