Recipe type: Sandwich
Serves: 8 sandwiches
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 12 oz. bag broccoli slaw
  • Salt
  • 4 cups pulled, cooked rotisserie chicken, (about 2 rotisserie chicken's worth, or 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast, boiled and shredded would work here too.)
  • A bottle of your favorite, sweet-style barbecue sauce
  • 8-pack of hamburger buns, (sesame or sweet Hawaiian work well here)
  • 2 jalapeƱos, sliced
  1. In a small saucepan heated over medium-low heat, bring the vinegar and sugar to a boil to dissolve the sugar. You can remove the pot from the heat once it dissolves.
  2. Dump the bag of broccoli slaw in a heat-proof container. Pour the sugar-vinegar mixture of the slaw, season with ¼ tsp. salt, and stir. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of an hour until it cools, but overnight or longer is preferred.
  3. When you're ready to eat, heat the pulled chicken and barbecue sauce up in a sauce pan until warm. To serve, toast the buns and top with pulled chicken, the chilled broccoli slaw, and sliced jalapeƱo.
