Recipe Friday - Pulled Chicken and Slaw Sliders

You may recall me talking about kick-off Sunday for football and the good food we had that day.  We had lots of snacks but we also had a "main dish" which was Pulled Chicken and Slaw Sliders.  They were super easy and so good!

adapted from : Recipe Shoebox

I turned these "sliders" into full size sandwiches by using regular hamburger buns.  Also, I did not use the rotisserie chicken but rather put some chicken thighs in the crock pot with chicken broth and seasoning in the morning so it was ready to shred for sandwiches later in the day.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs. dill pickle juice (from a jar of pickles)
2 Tbs. cider vinegar
2 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
1 (16-oz) package shredded coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage)
1/2 cup green onion

1 cup favorite BBQ sauce
3 Tbs. cider vinegar (we left this out completely)
3 cups roughly shredded rotisserie chicken

1 pkg. (12) mini-hamburger buns (I used 8 regular-sized hamburger buns)
To prepare slaw, in a large bowl whisk all ingredients together, except coleslaw mix and green onion. Add coleslaw and green onions and toss to coat. Refrigerate until ready to serve

To prepare chicken, combine BBQ sauce, vinegar, and chicken in a glass bowl. Microwave about 3-minutes or until thoroughly blended.
To serve, place chicken mixture on bun bottoms. 
Spoon slaw on top of chicken.

Place remaining bun halves on top.
So very yummy!!!
