Tender Smokey BBQ Pulled Chicken on a Wholemeal Bun with Crème Fraîche Slaw & Sweet Potato Fries


The juiciest tastiest pulled chicken sandwich with none of the hours of faffing about that pulled pork or chicken usually take. A beautifully glossy homemade smokey BBQ sauce that takes only 10 minutes to throw together and gorgeous shredded chicken that only takes half an hour! Quick, Easy, Delicious! Using chicken instead of pork for this pulled sandwich cuts fat & calories even further to make for a healthy alternative without losing any of the flavour or texture of the traditional recipe. The chicken is juicy and tender and remains that way due to being coated in the thick shiny homemade BBQ sauce. You can serve it with a wholemeal bun and delicious homemade coleslaw and fries I will also list the Macros and Smartpoints for the Chicken and Sauce on it’s own if you prefer to serve it with salad or rice instead. I sourced 99% of the ingredients for this in Aldi so they are easily accessible and cheap and cheerful too! The entire meal including all the trimmings as shown in the picture here serves 4 (The Coleslaw serves 6 you can add less veggies to make less if you wish) and it all comes in at 13 Smartpoints a serving / Macros per serving are: 533Cal P41 C61 F12. The Chicken in sauce will keep for up to 3 or 4 days refrigerated in an airtight container and it is suitable for freezing when fully cooled and on the day it’s made.
The details for the pulled chicken in the sauce on it’s own (for if you are serving it with alternative sides) are 2 Smartpoints a serving / Macros 166Cal P31 C7 F2 Continue reading
