From the Test Kitchen

Chefs, it’s almost summer, and that can only mean one thing: BBQ! But the delicious, smoky flavors of barbecue don’t have to be prepared on a grill. We’re bringing them indoors in this easy recipe for pulled (or shredded) chicken sandwiches infused with barbecue sauce and topped with a tart, colorful cabbage and radish slaw. And for a classic side, we’re serving up a creamy potato salad made with delicate fingerling potatoes and scallions.
