2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

For the whiskey BBQ sauce:
1/2 cup whiskey
1 cup ketchup
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

For the sandwiches:
1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed from bones
Bibb lettuce
Red onion, thinly sliced, for topping

6 buns, lightly toasted
 

Preparation

For the cola BBQ sauce, heat olive oil in a medium-size saucepan over high heat. Add onion and sauté for a minute or two then add the onion and chili powders. Reduce heat and add the cola, ketchup, molasses and vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes to thicken. Add the chicken, stir to combine and cook until chicken is heated through.

For the whiskey BBQ sauce, in a medium-size saucepot, combine all the ingredients and bring to a bubble over medium heat. Let mixture bubble and reduce down for about 10 minutes. Once the sauce is thickened, add the chicken, stir to combine and cook just until the chicken is heated through.

Place a leaf of lettuce on the bun bottoms to prevent the bun from getting soggy then top lettuce with a serving of the BBQ Chicken, some pickles and some onion.
