Mix together all marinade ingredients until fully combined. Add chicken thighs to marinade, stir well until completely coated, then leave to marinade for at least 30 mins.
Preheat oven to 190°C/ 360°F. Transfer BBQ chicken thighs to a baking dish, add any leftover marinade to chicken thighs, then bake for 25 mins. Remove chicken thighs once during cook time to baste, this will help keep your chicken thighs juicy and coated.
Whilst chicken thighs are cooking mix together slaw ingredients until fully combined.
Once chicken thighs are cooked, remove from oven, leave to cool for 2 mins, then shred using two forks. Now you are ready to build your sandwiches. Apply roughly a tsp of light mayonnaise to the bottom of your bap, then pulled BBQ Chicken, then top with slaw and garnish.
