Ingredients

  • 3 pounds of turkey breast or thighs bone in but skin removed
  • 2 cups of bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1 medium onion quartered and cut into thin slices
  • 3 medium ripe peaches peeled, pitted and diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce

Slaw

  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage green, purple or mixed
  • 3 scallions diced
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  • Place the skinned turkey parts into a crock pot or slow cooker.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce, onions, peaches and chipotle peppers until well combined.
  • Pour the sauce over the turkey pieces and turn to coat well.
  • Cook on low for 8 hours, or until meat is very tender and almost falling off the bones.
  • Remove the turkey from the sauce, and with an immersion blender, blend the sauce until it is fairly smooth.
  • Let the turkey cool a bit and remove the meat from the bones. Shred the meat with 2 forks, and place it back into the sauce.
  • Cover the crockpot and let the turkey simmer while you prepare the slaw.

For the slaw:

  • Combine the carrots, cabbage and scallions in a large bowl.
  • Combine the Greek yogurt, vinegar, honey, mustard, salt and pepper in a measuring cup, and stir well to combine.
  • Pour the dressing over the vegetables, and toss to combine.
  • Let the slaw sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight, for the flavors to combine.
  • Serve the pulled turkey on slider or full size buns, topped with a scoop of slaw.

Notes

Turkey and slaw can both be made a day in advance. Keep refrigerated and reheat when ready to serve.
