This recipe is inspired by a Memphis mainstay: the barbecue sandwich, typically made with chopped or pulled pork. For a lighter take, we’re using chicken instead—tossing it in a sweet, smoky barbecue sauce before piling it onto soft potato buns with a zesty slaw. Roasted potatoes, served with some of the slaw’s creamy dressing on the side (perfect for dipping), round out the meal.

Prepare & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the potatoes. Halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Set aside in a warm place.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the dressing:

While the potatoes roast, wash and dry the remaining fresh produce. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; thinly slice the leaves. Place in a large bowl.

Add the barbecue sauce; stir to thoroughly coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
