  • 1 Signature Cafe Whole Roasted Chicken
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Red Pepper flakes
  • 8 slices Signature SELECT Sourdough French bread, toasted
  • Olive oil
  • Cilantro for garnish


  • Peel all the chicken away from the bone, discarding the skin and carcass and transfer the chicken meat to a bowl. If prepping ahead of time, follow the tips and tricks listed above. Toss the chicken with bbq sauce to evenly coat.
  • Preheat an oven or grill to 350 degrees.
  • Slice the bread into 1/2 inch pieces and drizzle with olive oil, place on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven or on the grill until golden brown. Remove from the heat and top with equal amounts of the bbq chicken mixture and cheese. Transfer back into the oven and broil until the cheese is just melted.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven, divide the tartines on 4 plates and season with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and cilantro. Serve immediately.
