Speedy Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

Speedy Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

Your favorite bottled barbecue sauce helps these sandwiches come together in a flash. The filling is also delicious folded into a wrap or tortilla. The coleslaw improves in flavor if made ahead (up to a full day).

Makes 2 large or 4 small sandwiches | Total Time: Less Than 30 Mins


For the slaw:

  • ½ small head green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • ½ bell pepper, shredded
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Salt and black pepper
