  • 1 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • ½ cup Head Country Chipotle Bar-B-Que Sauce plus 2 tbsp set aside
  • 1 tsp Head Country Original Championship Seasoning
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 round loaf hearty round bread
  • 8 oz Cheese shredded
  • 2 Scallions chopped
  • ¼ cup Black Beans rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup cherry Tomatoes chopped
  • 4 tbsp Sour Cream
  • Pickled Red Onions


  • Place the chicken in the slow cooker with ½ cup Head Country Chipotle Bar-B-Que Sauce, Head Country Original Championship Seasoning. Add the onion and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, until the chicken shreds easily with 2 forks.
  • Shred the chicken and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Slice the bread almost through to the bottom from one side to the other being careful to not cut through. Rotate the bread and slice, making a crosshatch, carefully not slicing all the way through again.
  • Pull the bread apart gently. And place into a large cast iron skillet.
  • Slide the bread in the oven and toast 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese of the bread, making sure the cheese falls into the slices.
  • Place back in the oven to melt the cheese another 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and spoon the shredded chicken over top and cover with cheese.
  • Place back into the oven and toast the cheese again for another 5 minutes.
  • Drizzle with the remaining barbecue sauce.
  • Top with the scallions, black beans, cherry tomatoes, a dollop of sour cream and pickled red onions.
  • Serve with napkins.
