  • tsp  smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp   garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp   salt
  • 1/4  tsp  pepper
  • 1 lb.   boneless, skinless chicken thighs 
  • 1 Tbsp   cooking oil
  • 1/4  cup  BBQ sauce
  • 7  oz.  coleslaw mix*
  • green onions, sliced 
  • 1/4  cup  ranch dressing
  • 4  buns


  • Combine the smoked paprika, garlic, powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Cut any large chicken thighs in half to make them more sandwich-sized (you'll want four pieces total). Season both sides of the chicken thighs with the prepared spice mix.
    1  tsp  smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp   garlic powder, 1/4  tsp  pepper
  • Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, swirl to coat the surface of the skillet. Add the seasoned chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken thighs are well browned and cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the heat and brush BBQ sauce over both sides of each piece.
  • Add the coleslaw mix, sliced green onions, and ranch dressing to a bowl. Stir until everything is combined and evenly coated in dressing.
    2  green onions, sliced 
  • To build the sandwiches, place one piece of BBQ chicken on each bun and top with a heaping scoop of the ranch slaw. Serve immediately.
    4  buns


* This is a bagged mix of pre-shredded cabbage and carrots. I used half of a 14oz. bag.
