Author's Notes

The recipe can easily be doubled to feed more people!
For a zesty kick, try mixing a teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce into the shredded chicken.
To bring your ranch slaw to the next level, try adding a tablespoon or two of your favorite chopped herbs, like cilantro, parsley, or dill.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Place the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thigh (1 lb) in an empty saucepan. Season generously with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste), 1-2 tsp each (the extra seasoning is needed to flavor the chicken). Add water until the chicken is covered by 1 inch.
step 2
Bring the liquid to a boil over medium-high heat, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook for 5-10 more minutes until the middle is no longer pink or the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
step 3
Transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined tray to cool slightly.
step 4
In a medium bowl, combine the Coleslaw Mix (1 cup) and the Ranch Dressing (4 Tbsp). Season with Ground Black Pepper (to taste), and Salt (to taste) if desired.
step 5
To shred the chicken, transfer the chicken to the bowl of a stand mixer and blend for 30-60 seconds until shredded. You can also use a hand mixer, or shred by hand with two forks.
step 6
Add the Barbecue Sauce (1/2 cup) to the shredded chicken and toss until fully coated.
step 7
Place a skillet over high heat. Once hot, toast the Hamburger Buns (4) in the dry pan for 1-2 minutes, until golden.
step 8
Place a quarter of the shredded chicken on each of the bottom buns. Top with the ranch slaw and serve with sides of choice.
