• 150 g Greek-style yogurt about 3/4 cup
• 3 Tbsp ground hazelnuts
• 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
• 1/4 tsp salt
• pinch of black pepper

• 6 Turano Gourmet Rolls
• Shopped parsley
• Sliced chilies


Apple BBQ Sauce
① Place a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat and melt the butter. Add onions and wait for a few minutes to get golden, then add garlic and stir for about a minute. Then add apples, water, and apple cider vinegar, cover, and reduce to medium heat. Cook covered for about 10 minutes or until apples start getting softer.
② Uncover and add the rest of the ingredients, mix well, and let gently simmer for about 30 minutes or until most of the apples have fallen apart.
③ Mix in a blender to get the silky smooth texture.

Pulled chicken
① In a big bowl mix all spices together and add chicken thighs. Make sure to coat all the meat with the spice blend.
② Place a large pan over high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Cook chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side (cook time will depend on the thickness of the thighs). Make sure the chicken is cooked through before taking it off the pan.
③ Transfer it to a clean plate and shred it using forks.
④ Return the shredded chicken to the same pan you used before and add 1/2 cup of apple BBQ sauce (or more if it seems dry) and cook for a minute.

Apple Slaw
① Cut the veggies into thin slices. Mix all ingredients for the dressing together.
② Toss the veggies with the dressing.

① Assemble between Turano Gourmet Rolls with pulled chicken and apple slaw. Add more apple BBQ sauce on top and top with chopped parsley and chilly slices.
