For the Chicken

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
  3. Grill the chicken breasts on each side for 3 to 4 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  4. Brush with a hickory-smoked BBQ sauce.
For the Creamy Coleslaw
  1. Combine cabbages and red onion in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. To make dressing, combine mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, celery seed, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add hot sauce to taste. Whisk to combine.
  3. Toss dressing with the cabbage and onion mixture. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes or preferably overnight to allow flavours to marry.
  4. Place grilled BBQ-basted chicken breast on a fresh Kaiser roll and a helping of Creamy Coleslaw.
