  • 4 ciabatta buns
  • pickle slices

For the Hot Sauce

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Directions

Step 1 Of 5
1
Preheat grill to medium heat, between 350°F and 400°F.
2
Combine olive oil, black pepper, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, salt and paprika in a bowl and set aside.
3
In a separate bowl, mix shredded cabbage, carrots, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise and apple cider vinegar. Place in the refrigerator.
Hot Tip
This red cabbage slaw can be made up to 2 days in advance, but it’s always best when prepared fresh.
4
Place chicken on grill and baste with hot sauce. Turn and baste every 2 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. This should take about 10 minutes.
Hot Tip
When basting, you can simmer your hot sauce on low heat. This will make it easier to coat the chicken breasts evenly.
5
Remove chicken from grill. Place chicken on ciabatta bun, top with hot sauce, pickles and red cabbage slaw.
