SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve shredded chicken on whole-wheat buns, some barbecue sauce and side of coleslaw (to make the slaw, mix coleslaw mix with mayo, add a splash of rice vinegar and you're good to go). If you want an authentic barbecue experience, slap the coleslaw right on the buns and eat the whole thing together.
