From the Test Kitchen

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.
