Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into ½ inch wedges. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway, 25 to 30 min., until browned and tender.

Cook & shred the chicken
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with S&P. Cook, 4 to 6 min. per side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Transfer to a shallow bowl, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Using two forks, shred the chicken.

Meanwhile, peel and grate the carrots. Core and cut the apple into matchsticks. In a large bowl, combine the mayo, all but 1 tbsp of the vinaigrette and a drizzle of oil. Add the cabbage, carrots, apple and S&P; toss well.

Make the sauce & coat the chicken
Heat the reserved pan on medium. Add the BBQ sauce, remaining vinaigrette, ½ cup water, 1 tbsp butter, the remaining spices and S&P; stir well. Return the chicken and cook, breaking it apart further, 5 to 7 min., until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is coated.

Toast the buns & serve
When the potatoes are browned, remove from the oven and switch the oven to broil. In a small bowl, microwave 2 tbsp butter, in 15 sec. increments, until melted. Arrange the buns, cut-sides up, on a second sheet pan lined with aluminium foil. Brush with the melted butter. Broil, 2 to 3 min., until golden brown. Divide the bun bottoms and potatoes between your plates. Top each bun bottom with the chicken, a spoonful of the slaw and a bun top. Serve the remaining slaw on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking poultry to a minimum internal temperature of 74°C.
