Step By Step  

Tangy North Carolina-style BBQ is a unique way to dress up chicken sandwiches with tons of flavor.

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Pulled chicken from the slow cooker is an easy way to enjoy BBQ without all the work. 

Slow cooked pulled chicken or pork is always such a dinner win because it's so easy and satisfying.

The only problem is, it starts to get old after awhile.

That’s where this recipe comes in to save the day! This pulled chicken is cooked in an easy, homemade North Carolina style BBQ sauce. North Carolina style sauces are vinegar-based instead of tomato (or sugar-based, like most store-bought BBQ), so it has an awesome tanginess that runs deep throughout the chicken.

Top the sandwiches with a simple slaw and you have dinner on the table with minimal effort and maximum deliciousness.

The sauce is apple cider vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, honey and paprika. Whisk it all together and then just pour it over the chicken. Done.

I cut some veggies myself for this slaw, but feel free to buy a bag of the pre-cut stuff. Then just add some mayo, cilantro, and sriracha.

Try not to eat all the chicken before you get it onto the sandwiches!
