Alabama White BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Alabama White BBQ Chicken Sandwich
While I was at the University of Alabama, there were a couple restaurants that we loved. And one go-to restaurant for us was Newk's... a sandwich, salad, and pizza joint. It always had good food at affordable prices, which is a plus for college students. My favorite sandwich was the Newk's Q. This consisted of roasted chicken, crispy bacon, smoked provolone, and a classic Alabama White BBQ Sauce. It always hit the spot, especially after a night of drinking. Have y'all ever been to Newk's? And did you love it as much as we did? This would be one great sandwich for tailgating or a day of watching football!! Enjoy :)

For the Sandwich:
4 Slices of French Country Bread, Fried in Bacon Fat
Leftover Dry-Rubbed Beer Can Chicken, Sliced & Warmed
Homemade Alabama White BBQ Sauce
8 Slices of Applewood Smoked Bacon, Cooked until Crispy
4 Slices of Smoked Provolone Cheese
Red Onions, Sliced & Caramelized

1. Fry the pieces of bread in leftover bacon fat until golden brown and crispy. Keep warm.
2. Spread some Alabama White BBQ Sauce on both slices of bread, and then top one slice of bread with a slice of smoked provolone cheese, warmed Dry-Rubbed Beer Can Chicken, crispy bacon slices, caramelized red onions, an extra drizzle of sauce, and one last slice of cheese. Stack the sandwich together and either finish cooking in a sauté pan or in the oven until the cheese has melted and the sandwich is warmed through.
3. Enjoy while warm. 


  1. Do you have a recipe for the Homemade ALabama White Sauce?

    1. I have a recipe for it from my Dry-Rubbed Beer Can Chicken with Alabama White BBQ Sauce seen here...

      But, there are also a bunch of recipes on the internet that can be substituted and you can also find a store-bought bottle of White BBQ Sauce at most grocery stores in the South. I hope this helps!!


  2. This looks like something my boyfriend would love! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
