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 smoked 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.

  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
