Grilled Chicken and Coleslaw Sandwich Recipe

Grilled Chicken and Coleslaw Sandwich
These BBQ grilled chicken and coleslaw sandwiches are great to prepare during the summer months. These sandwiches are loaded with crispy bacon, cheddar cheese and a Dijon slaw. You can use your favorite brand of BBQ sauce for this recipe or even make your own. For the bacon I used Applewood smoke bacon. The Dijon slaw gets a lot of its flavor from ingredients such as Dijon mustard and vinegar. I recommend toasting the buns on the grill. I like to serve this recipe with French fries. Enjoy.

Grilled Chicken and Slaw Sandwiches

Yield: 4 Servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded to a thickness of about 1/2 inch)
  • 16 slices Applewood smoked bacon (cooked until crispy)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns

Dijon Slaw-

  • 1 cup mayonaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or pinch
  • 1 store-bought bag shredded slaw mix (containing red and green cabbage and carrots)



  1. In a large bowl combine mayonaise, Dijon mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, vinegar, and sugar. Mix well. Toss in the shredded slaw mix and mix together. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Heat to low heat. Split the hamburger buns and lightly toast on the bottom if desired and remove from the grill. Turn the heat to medium-high.
  3. Place chicken breasts onto the grill and cook while turning and brushing with the BBQ sauce frequently on each side for 10-15 minutes per side (depending on the thickness), or until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees).  During the last few minutes of cooking top each chicken breast with 2 slices of bacon and 1 slice of cheddar cheese.
  4. Place the chicken breasts onto the toasted buns and top with Dijon slaw.

    I have been following this blog site for years! You used to get so many comments and my mind is boggled as to where they all went?! I have found some pretty decent recipe on this site. You taco seasoning, oven baked tacos, baked chimichangas, Asian meatballs, buttermilk pancakes, and chicken spaghetti are regulars at my house! I’ve found some others that are quite tasty too! This chicken burger was really good and my whole family enjoyed it as well! The only thing I did different was broil my chicken. It was a good mix of sweet and tangy, the coleslaw was a nice addition. Thanks for the recipes!
    Ps does Bobby still run this site?

    Hi Megan,

    Good to hear from you again! I am so glad that you are enjoying the recipes I put up. There hasn’t been a lot of comment activity in years. Probably because there are so many cooking blogs around now.
