“Spicy chicken with a cooling slaw topping. The original recipes says it serves 4, but I think since the breasts are cut in half, it probably serves more. From Nibble Me This blog: Note: Recommended to cook outside on a grill or burner.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the dry rub ingredients together.
  2. To make the slaw: Put the cabbage, bell pepper and onion in a bowl. Whisk the remaining ingredients together, pour over the veggies and toss to coat. Add a little of the dressing at a time until you get the consistency wanted. Can make ahead and refrigerate it for 2-3 hours before eating.
  3. Preheat a grill with a cast iron skillet or griddle plate to 450 degrees. (May, also, be cooked in cast iron using a burner.).
  4. Brush buns lightly with butter and toast until browned, about 15-30 seconds; set aside.
  5. Drizzle just enough of the melted butter (about 1 tablespoon) over the chicken breasts to lightly coat. Season with 1/2 of the dry rub. It should be pretty thick to form a 'crust'.
  6. Ladle a few tablespoons of the butter onto the hot griddle and place the cutlets onto the griddle seasoned side down. (Note: The butter may smoke a LOT. That's why it's cooked outside, just don't spill butter on the flames or it will flame up.) Cook until the edges of the cutlets start to turn white, about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Ladle the remaining butter over the chicken and season with the remaining dry rub. Flip and cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 155-160 degrees, about 3-5 minutes.
  8. Remove chicken and serve on toasted buns with the slaw.
