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!

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • ✨Happy NYE!!!✨This year was tough, not gonna lie! We got our new white lab Luna in the beginning and Hurricane Michael in the end and there were many other events in between. Let’s just say that I’m ready for the new year and I look forward to new memories! With all that being said I am also very thankful for this past year because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me realize what’s important and how to prioritize my life! I’m also very thankful for all of you for following me, commenting, liking, and supporting me. I hope y’all have a most memorable night filled with friends and family and stay safe!! See you next year! ❤️😉🎉 #forever21xme #freepeople #happynye #happynewyear2019 #cheers
  • Cheers to the weekend! 🥂Currently contemplating whether I should take down our Christmas decor or leave it up til New Year’s Day. What are your thoughts on this? I need some advice 🙃
