Delicious pulled chicken sandwiches in just 20 minutes? Yep! We’re making it happen. These bad boys in buns contain precooked pulled chicken—all you have to do is heat it in a pan and you’re at tender, juicy bliss. Although that meat isn’t the only star of the show. To keep things fresh, there’s also an apple carrot slaw, plus a spiced chipotle sour cream for a bit of smoky intrigue.

Tear chicken into smaller, bitesized pieces. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat (use a nonstick pan if you have one). Add chicken, scallion whites, ½ tsp chipotle powder (we’ll use the rest later), and a large pinch of salt. Toss to combine. Cook until chicken is warmed and starting to crisp at edges, 3-4 minutes.
