cooked green cabbage

1½ cup(s), shredded, finely shredded

fat free sour cream

3 Tbsp

apple cider vinegar

2 tsp


½ tsp

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

2 cup(s), chopped, shredded

barbecue sauce


restaurant type kaiser roll(s)

4 item(s)


  1. Combine the cabbage, sour cream, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 10 minutes for the flavors to develop or until ready to use, up to 6 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the chicken and barbecue sauce in a medium nonstick saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 4 minutes.
  3. Slice the rolls horizontally almost all the way through; spread open. Pull out some of the bread from the center, if desired. Place the warm chicken mixture then the coleslaw on the bottoms of the rolls. Close the rolls, cut in half, if desired, and serve while warm. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.


It makes a speedy and satisfying supper or lunch, and because it’s so quick and delicious, it may become a weekly stand-by.Pantry items you can stir into the coleslaw if you want a little extra zing: a big pinch of freshly grated lemon zest, a handful of shredded carrots, a dash of hot red pepper sauce, your favorite chopped fresh herbs, or a finely chopped scallion—all without adding to your SmartPoints value.
