This quick and flavorful barbeque chicken recipe is perfect for busy weeknights or weekend get-togethers. It uses store-bought rotisserie chicken, which saves time and minimizes dinnertime hassle. Serve with lightened-up coleslaw over mixed greens—or pile it all up on a toasted brioche bun.
Total time: 15 minutes
Serving size: approximately 1 1¼ cup
Cut rotisserie chicken in half (to make it easier to break down), remove and discard the skin, and shred the meat with two forks. Pat the meat dry with a paper towel, if needed. Place meat in a large bowl and mix with barbeque sauce.
In a separate large mixing bowl, combine coleslaw mix, yogurt, vinegar, and honey. Mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add mixed greens to six plates. Place a scoop (approximately ½ cup) of chicken and a generous portion of slaw on top of the greens. Serve.
