Great hot or cold, fried chicken takes the field in these simple savory-meets-sweet sandwiches. For an extra kick, we add a couple dashes of hot sauce with the honey and build the sandwiches with a tart mustard slaw. Make these in advance and wrap ‘em waxed paper to take to the big game!
CHICKEN N’ HONEY SANDWICHES
4 lbs Cooked and Chilled Fried chicken, pulled from the bone
2 Loaves French Bread
Mustard Slaw (recipe below)
1/4 cup Honey
A few dashes of your favorite Hot Sauce
Pull the chicken from the bones, being extra careful to ensure that there are no bones. Chop roughly and set aside. In a small bowl, blend the honey with a few dashes of hot sauce, adding more as needed to suit your preference. Assemble the sandwiches one loaf at a time and then cut into smaller pieces once it is filled. This will help hold the sandwiches together and speed up the process. Slice the loaves of bread lengthwise, leaving one side attached. Open the loaf and spread out a thin layer of the mustard slaw then disperse the chicken evenly. Drizzle with the honey/hot sauce mixture, close the sandwiches and wrap tightly. When ready to serve, cut into portions and secure with a toothpick.
1 lb Green Cabbage, shredded finely
1/4 cup Yellow Mustard
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Celery Salt
Toss all ingredients together until well combined and set aside until ready to use. If needed, squeeze excess liquid from slaw before making sandwiches.
