Smoked Pulled Chicken Sliders Recipe
8 Chicken thighs - bone in with skin on
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp garlic powder
½ Tsp ground black pepper
¼ Tsp cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 ⅓ Cup BBQ sauce
12 Slider buns
2 Cups thinly sliced red cabbage
⅔ Cup cole slaw dressing
Bradley Flavor Bisquettes (Apple, Hickory, or Whiskey Oak)
Mix the seasonings and white sugar together in a small bowl. Rub all over the chicken thighs. Place the chicken thighs on a Bradley Smoker rack.
Set the smoker to 250°F using wood bisquettes of choice (Whiskey Oak, Apple or Hickory work great).
Smoke the chicken thighs until they reach an internal temperature of 180°F.
Remove from the smoker and let cool slightly. Peel off the skin and pull the meat off the bone in small thin strips. Place the chicken meat in a bowl and stir with the BBQ sauce until all the meat is coated.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the cabbage and cole slaw dressing.
Assemble the sliders by spooning some pulled chicken on the bottom of a slider bun and top with cole slaw. Do this with the remaining slider buns.
