Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 (1 3/4 to 2 pound) purchased roasted chicken
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1/3 cup cider or white wine vinegar
1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 to 4 tablespoons seeded and finely chopped fresh red and/or green hot chile peppers
2 tablespoons snipped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 Portuguese kaiser rolls, or hamburger buns, split
bread and butter pickle slices

Pull the meat from the chicken, discarding skin, if desired, and bones. Use two forks or your fingers to pull meat into shreds. If desired, use a sharp knife to chop some of the seasoned skin and add it to the chicken.
In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook about 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally to separate into rings. Add vinegar. Cook 1 minute.

Stir in tomato sauce, hot peppers, thyme, molasses, water and salt. Bring to boiling. Add the chicken, tossing gently to coat. Heat through. Serve on split rolls with pickle slices.
