The Oilfield Cafe: Mustard-BBQ Sandwiches

Mustard BBQ Sandwiches

Total time: 30 minutes | Makes 4 servings


2 cups boiled chicken, shredded

2 cups shredded coleslaw mix

4 tsp. apple cider vinegar

2 tsp. sugar

1/2 cup barbecue sauce

1/4 cup yellow mustard

1/4 tsp. black pepper

4 dinner-sized hamburger buns or sandwich rolls, split


Mix shredded chicken with the barbecue sauce and mustard in a medium bowl until well coated. Warm the mixture in a saucepan over low heat.

In another medium bowl, stir together the vinegar, sugar and black pepper. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the coleslaw mix and toss to coat the cabbage.

Place the barbecue chicken evenly onto the bottom halves of the 4 rolls. Then top the chicken with the coleslaw and the other half of the roll. (And a little mayo, if you’re my husband.)
