BBQ CHICKEN SANDWICH WITH SAVORY COLESLAW

MY GO-TO RECIPE FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY


bbq sandwich

Several years ago, my husband and I spent our 4th of July with our friends down at Grayton Beach.  It was an all day affair so we decided that we should probably bring a decent meal to snack on as we wait for the fireworks.  I ended up bringing coleslaw and potato salad and my friend Ginny brought her yummy bbq chicken which she makes with a bbq sauce that is GMO-free called The Shed.  As we were fixing our plates, we decided that we should top off our bbq sandwiches with the coleslaw I brought.  Best decision we ever made!   The bbq chicken was sweet and spicy and the coleslaw was creamy and savory, it was a magical combination!  

Since then, we have made this our go-to recipe for 4th of July and now I can’t wait to share it with you!  I will warn you though, this recipe is super easy and addictive.  This year instead of potato salad, I served my bbq chicken and coleslaw sandwiches with some fresh corn (a little butter, salt, cayenne pepper, and chopped scallions) and my fave Terra Chips you can find them by the case here or check your local grocery stores.  I love the fact that they are red, white, and blue it’s like they were made just for the occasion!

In case you were wondering about the drink I have pictured, I made an agua fresca with strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries (I like to add frozen blueberries to keep it cool).  It’s great because it’s a hydrating crowd pleaser and if you want, you can always have some vodka on the side to splash in for the adults.

Also, you can DIY the cocktail picks I used for the drinks easily by cutting down some bamboo skewers and tie on some cute ribbon, then cut the ends in a “v” shape so that they resemble a flag.  These are super cute and simple, the best part is that you can change the ribbon up for any gathering to “fancy up” your cocktails!  

Ok, I’m getting way too outta hand with all this cuteness!  I’ve listed the recipes for the BBQ chicken and the coleslaw below.

BBQ CHICKEN
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 3-6 CHICKEN BREASTS
  2. 1/2-1 YELLOW ONION CHOPPED
  3. THE SHED BBQ SAUCE
  4. OLIVE OIL
  5. SALT + PEPPER
Instructions
  1. PREPARE CHICKEN BREASTS WITH A LITTLE OLIVE OIL, SALT, AND PEPPER. BAKE IN THE OVEN AT 350 FOR 30 MINUTES. ONCE CHICKEN IS DONE, SHRED IT. TIP-IF YOU HAVE A KITCHEN AID USE THE PADDLE TOOL AND TURN IT ON LOW-MEDIUM UNTIL YOU HAVE SHREDDED THE CHICKEN. MEANWHILE ADD ONION TO A SAUTE-PAN AND COOK UNTIL CLEAR, THEN ADD SHREDDED CHICKEN AND BBQ SAUCE AND STIR. I USUALLY EYEBALL THE SAUCE DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH CHICKEN I'VE MADE. SERVE WHILE HOT!

SAVORY COLESLAW
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 BAG OF SHREDDED CABBAGE COLESLAW
  2. CELERY SEEDS
  3. ONION FLAKES
  4. GARLIC POWDER
  5. MAYONAISE
  6. SALT + PEPPER
  7. (OPTIONAL) ADD FRESHLY CHOPPED BANANA PEPPERS AND SCALLIONS FOR COLOR AND FLAVOR
Instructions
  1. THIS RECIPE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN MOST, I USUALLY ADD EACH OF THE SEASONINGS LITTLE BY LITTLE AND DO A TASTE TEST IN BETWEEN. SAME WITH THE MAYO, I'D SAY START WITH 1/2 A CUP AND THEN ADD MORE AS NEEDED. KEEP IN MIND THAT A LITTLE MAYO GOES A LONG WAY. YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD MORE IF YOU NEED TO BUT KEEP IT SIMPLE AT FIRST. IF YOU HAVE ADDED TOO MUCH MAYO, YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD MORE COLESLAW MIX AND SEASONING IF NEEDED. I LOVE TO ADD FRESH BANANA PEPPERS AND THE GREEN ONION OR SCALLIONS ARE A GREAT NEW ADDITION TO ADD COLOR AND FLAVOR. I'M SORRY I DON'T HAVE THIS METHOD DOWN TO EXACT MEASUREMENTS BUT THIS IS HOW I'VE BEEN TAUGHT, EYEBALL, TASTE, THEN GO!

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
