BBQ Chicken Sandwiches-Southern Style


Whenever I ate bbq sandwiches I always ate them Southern style…that is topped with cole slaw.  I didn’t know I loved my sandwiches bbq style until we lived in the south.

I found a recipe over at picky palate that I knew I needed to try.  I changed up the slaw recipe to more my liking, but the whole dish is d’lish.

It’s a great summer dinner, you can use leftover chicken, and it’s yummy the second day too.

Make the slaw ahead of time and refrigerate for a few hours…it’s worth the wait!
