Ingredients for 4

  • 2 (12- to 16-ounce) bone-in chicken breasts

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 cup (257 ml) barbecue sauce

  • 1/4 cup (59 ml) mayonnaise

  • 1/4 cup (59 ml) sour cream

  • 1/4 cup (59 ml) sliced scallions

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) honey

  • 1 (14-ounce or 414 ml) bag coleslaw mix

  • 4 sandwich buns


  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 150ºF (65.6ºC).

  • Step 2

    Season the chicken breasts liberally with salt and pepper. Place in a large zipper lock bag with 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique and place in the water bath. Set the timer for 1 hour.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 0

      When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Remove the chicken from the bag and let rest for 10 minutes. Reserve the cooking liquid.

    • Step 1

      When cool enough to handle, shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Discard bones and skin. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the remaining barbecue sauce and reserved cooking liquid. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    • Step 2

      In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, scallions, mustard, vinegar, and honey. Add the coleslaw mix and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    • Step 3

      Divide the chicken between the buns, top with coleslaw, and serve.
