BBQ Pulled Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, Slaw

Course: Lunch

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Total Time: 6 Hours

Total Servings: 4 + leftover chicken for freezer


 

Enjoy the flavors of a summer BBQ with this slow-cooked chicken hit.  A baked sweet potato and a seasoned coleslaw side finish this tasty meal.  

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups Stubbs BBQ sauce 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 lbs chicken breasts
  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1 bag of tri color slaw 
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 cup of purple cabbage, thinly sliced 
  • ¼ cup of chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • Optional Toppings: pepitas for slaw 

 

Instructions

    • Stir together bbq sauce and water in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add chicken and turn to coat. Place lid on and cook on high 3-4 hrs or low for 6-7 hrs. Shred chicken with 2 forks. Pull out 1 lb meat for this week and freeze leftovers. 
    • Wrap sweet potatoes in tin foil and bake at 400 F for 45-60 min or until soft. 
    • In a small bowl, wisk oil, vinegar, maple syrup and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss slaw, carrots, cabbage, cilantro and green onions together. Pour dressing over slaw and toss to combine. Taste to adjust seasonings if needed. 
    • Divide potatoes into 4 containers and add chicken. Put slaw in a separate container so you can heat the chicken and potatoes before eating. Top with pepitas if using right before serving. 

    ** if you have an instant pot, you can put 1 cup of water in the bottom, add a trivet and place sweet potatoes inside. Cook on manual high pressure for 23 minutes, and allow to naturally release pressure for 5 minutes before quick release instead of baking in the oven if desired.
