Steps

  • 1
    Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, mix broth, 1/3 cup of the hoisin sauce, the ketchup, honey, soy sauce, garlic, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Sriracha, the gingerroot and 2 teaspoons sesame oil with whisk. Add chicken; toss to coat. Cover; cook on High heat setting 3 to 4 hours.
  • 2
    During last 30 minutes of cook time, make coleslaw. In large bowl, beat rice vinegar, sugar, 2 teaspoons Sriracha and 1 teaspoon sesame oil with whisk. Add coleslaw mix; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes, tossing occasionally.
  • 3
    Remove chicken from slow cooker using slotted spoon. Remove sauce to another bowl. Place chicken on cutting board. Shred chicken using 2 forks, removing any bits of fat.
  • 4
    Return chicken and 1 1/2 cups of the sauce to slow cooker. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons hoisin; decrease to Low heat setting. Cook about 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  • 5
    Serve on buns; top with coleslaw. Serve with remaining sauce, if desired.

  • Shredded green cabbage can be used as a substitute for the coleslaw mix.
  • Hoisin is a thick, sweet sauce often used in Asian cuisine as a glaze or to flavor stir-fries.
