{Gluten and Dairy Free} Cherry Chipotle Pulled Chicken with Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

This recipe is from Simply Gluten-free . All of her recipes make my mouth water. I like to make a similar sandwich to this. I would use vegenaise instead of sour cream and maybe even use the chipotle Vegenaise.

Gluten Free Cherry Chipotle Pulled Chicken with Cilantro Lime Cole Slaw

Ingredients

3½ – 4 pounds chicken parts, skin on, bone in
4 cups gluten free chicken stock or water
1 (10-ounce) jar maraschino cherries without stems
1 cup ketchup
¾ cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dried garlic
1 tablespoon dried onion
1 – 3 teaspoons chipotle chili powder (depending on how spicy you like it)
½ cup sour cream or dairy free sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons sugar
Juice of 2 limes
1 (14-16 ounce) bag cole slaw
4 green onions, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
8 gluten free hamburger buns, toasted or warmed

Directions

Place the chicken in a saucepan or Dutch oven with the chicken stock or water. Bring to a boil, cover the pot, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 – 25 minutes. Remove the chicken from the liquid, let cool enough to handle then remove the skin and bones and shred.
Puree the maraschino cherries along with their liquid in a blender. Pour into a large saucepan and add the ketchup, pineapple juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion, and chipotle chili powder. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until thickened to the consistency of barbecue sauce, about 30 minutes. Add the shredded chicken to the sauce, stirring to combine.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, and lime juice, whisking until smooth. Add the cole slaw, green onions, and cilantro. Toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place some chicken on the bottom half of a hamburger bun, top with cole slaw and the top half of the bun.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Remove pork from the fridge and allow it to sit on the counter until the oven pre-heats.
  3. Wash your sweet potatoes, apples, and fresh rosemary. Then chop the apples and sweet potatoes into bite-sized pieces and place in a large bowl. Chop up 1 sprig or rosemary (or 1 tsp. dried) and add to the bowl along with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine 1 Tbsp. of oil, salt, pepper, and remaining rosemary. Mix well and rub all over the pork tenderloin.
  5. Heat the remaining 2 Tbsp. of oil over medium-high heat in a large oven proof skillet, I prefer a cast iron skillet.
  6. Transfer the tenderloin to the skillet and sear the outside, using tongs to turn it over. This should only take about 1 minute.
  7. Arrange the sweet potatoes and apples around the tenderloin. Try to place the sweet potatoes on the very bottom because the apples tend to get soggy there :)
  8. Transfer the skillet the oven and roast for 20 minutes, or until the tenderloin is just cooked through or 155 degrees in the center.
  9. Allow to rest 5 minutes before cutting into the tenderloin.
