Quick and Easy Glazed Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

May 17, 2016

I recently had to try the new King's Hawaiian barbecue sauces.  They released four different flavors including smoked bacon, sweet pineapple, Kona coffee and big island lava sauce.  The sauces vary in their level of sweetness and spice with sweet pineapple being the most mild and big island lava sauce having the most heat (similar to sweet chili sauce).  You can cook with these bottled sauces as you would any other barbecue sauce.  I initially sampled them paired with pulled pork but you can certainly use them as a glaze for various meats or tofu, as they have in the recipe below, or pair them with burgers or toss it with freshly fried chicken wings.  Have you tried these barbecue sauce? What did you think? Let us know in the comment section below.
