Barbeque Chicken on Garlic Toast
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 1/2 cups (14 ounces) bottled barbecue sauce
3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 garlic clove, crushed with a garlic press
Coarse salt and ground pepper
8 slices white sandwich bread (I used the same herb foccacia from the Market, yum!)
Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a medium saucepan, cook chicken and barbecue sauce over medium until heated through, 6 to 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine butter and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Spread one side of each slice of bread with garlic butter. Place on a baking sheet, buttered side up. Broil until golden brown, 1 to 3 minutes, then turn over, and broil until light brown, about 1 minute longer. To serve, sandwich chicken mixture between slices of bread.
