I am starting to learn what it is like to be the “soccer mom”. Running errands all day and then running kids everywhere and basically living out of your car. If I would just give into getting a mini van and putting the stick figure family on the back of my car I would be set. 😉

Most of our days are on the go as soon as school gets out. But I absolutely hate getting fast food and really made it a goal to have a meal for them each night. No matter how busy our days are. So that is why I love quick and easy meals. And our family has been loving strombolis lately. This BBQ Chicken Stromboli became an instant favorite.

We are all about the BBQ chicken combination at our house! We love the tender chicken smothered in a sweet and tangy bbq sauce. So I knew that I wanted to combine our love for it in a stromboli.

There are a lot of shortcuts in this recipe that help to make it come together quickly and easily. A premade pizza dough crust and rotisserie chicken help it to come together in no time at all.

The result is unbelievable. The melty provolone cheese, tender rotisserie chicken, caramelized onions, and sweet and tangy BBQ sauce come together to make it an incredible meal or appetizer. It was loved by our entire family and I know that you will love it too!

  1. There is no mention of chicken in the list of ingredients. How much should I use for the whole recipe? Thanks – can’t wait to make it!

  2. I made this tonight and it was YUMMY! I didn’t have great luck with the parchment paper though! The dough stuck to the bottom. Next time I will just spray the pan and do the dough straight on it. Great recipe though!

  3. I made this tonight. It was OK. I think the problem was our “italian spice” is probaly outdated. So, half is left over and we will add some serious garlic and additional spice to see if the leftovers are better than the original.

  4. I have made this several times now and it is a huge hit. My family wasn’t as wild about the bbq sauce, so I’ve started using pizza sauce instead. It substitutes nicely. With 5 kids, it’s nice to find something EVERYONE will eat.
