When I need to feed a crowd, my slow cooker comes to the rescue. The biggest hurdle with feeding large numbers of people is keeping the food hot and getting everything ready at the same time. Chicken Barbecue Sandwiches with Pineapple Slaw get better with time. The slaw comes together in the fridge as it marinates with the dressing. The chicken has no loss of quality while it sits on warm in your slow cooker or Instant Pot (Electric Pressure Cooker).
Although this sandwich looks decadent, the chicken is a great meal prep for the week. Serve it over salad or with nothing more than the slaw. The brioche buns I serve these on, are a bit of an indulgence, but when you use lean chicken breast, you can add a little something extra.
We don’t like gloppy slaw around here , so the light dressing with this one is perfect. The pineapple adds the perfect touch of sweet to the whole thing. If you like a thicker slaw dressing, feel free to double the dressing part of this recipe.
Short Cuts are Okay
Sure I could make my own barbecue sauce, but with so many yummy ones on the market, why? I really believe in taking help from the store where it counts the most. These Chicken Barbecue Sandwiches with Pineapple Slaw come together so easily because of some store bought sauce and using the slaw mix. You can even put these together quickly by using your electric pressure cooker or Instant Pot. Instructions below.
