Pulled Chicken Sliders Tangy Cabbage Slaw

Pulled chicken sliders tangy cabbage slaw

Southern barbecue is famous for its tangy, vinegar-based sauce. Balanced by a touch of brown sugar and tossed with juicy pulled chicken, this barbecue sauce will have you ditching the bottled kind. A little bit of slaw on the sliders is an essential addition.

1. Preheat the broiler to high (to toast the buns).

2. Cook the chicken: In a large pot, combine the brown sugar, chicken broth concentrates, 2/3 cup water, BBQ seasoning and 5 tbsp vinegar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the chicken to the pot. Cover with a lid and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 7-8 min.

3. Make the slaw: Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. Thinly slice the green onions. In a medium bowl, combine the coleslaw, green onions, mayonnaise, sugar and remaining vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Toast the buns: Halve the buns, then arrange them cut-side up on a baking sheet. Toast in the centre of the oven until golden-brown, 30 sec to 1 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on the buns so they don’t burn!)

5. Shred the chicken: When the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the liquid to a large plate. Add the ketchup to the liquid and make a sauce by continuing to simmer until it reduces by half, 4-5 min. Meanwhile, using two forks, shred the chicken then return to the pot and toss to coat in the sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Assemble and serve: Top the buns with the shredded chicken, a bit of coleslaw and the spring mix. Serve the remaining slaw to the side. Enjoy!
