Here’s the recipe you need to create those delicious Shredded, Saucy BBQ Chicken Sammies:
Gather your ingredients. You’ll need:
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1.5 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
For the slaw: 2 cups shredded cabbage mix, 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp sugar, salt & pepper
Brioche buns for serving
Start by placing your chicken breasts in your slow cooker, or if you’re short on time, use an Instant Pot.
In a separate bowl, mix together your BBQ sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper. Pour this scrumptious blend over your chicken.
Set your slow cooker on low and cook for 6-8 hours, or if using an Instant Pot, set on high for 20 minutes.
Once the chicken is done, shred it using two forks. Stir it back into the juicy sauce, ensuring every bit is packed full of flavor.
While your chicken is cooking, mix together the ingredients for your slaw in another bowl. Keep it chilled in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble your sammies.
Finally, lightly toast your brioche buns, spoon on your flavorful, shredded chicken, and top it with your crunchy, refreshing slaw. Serve immediately to enjoy the maximum deliciousness.
That’s it! In just a few simple steps, your Shredded, Saucy BBQ Chicken Sammies are ready to wow your taste buds!
