Recipe type: Passover
Cuisine: Jewish
Serves: 5
  • For Slaw:
  • ½ head red cabbage, shredded, about
  • 1 small jalapeño, diced small
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Salt to taste
  • For BBQ Chicken:
  • 1½ cups ketchup (kosher for Passover)
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 1½ cups cooked shredded chicken
  • For sweet potato latkes:
  • 3 cups sweet potatoes (1 pound), peeled and shredded with a box grater or a food processor
  • 2 tablespoons onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons matzo meal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup oil or schmaltz (I used canola, but peanut works great as well)
  1. To make the slaw topping, combine shredded cabbage with jalapeños, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey and salt and refrigerate for at least an hour to meld flavors.
  2. For the sauce, combine all ingredients except chicken and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for about 30-45 minutes until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Then stir in shredded chicken.
  3. First, peel and shred the potatoes (I used a hand grater) and using cheesecloth or a paper towel, remove all the moisture. Then combine potatoes, onion, garlic, eggs, matzo meal and salt together in a bowl.
  4. Heat oil in a large pan over medium high heat and add oil and continue to heat. You know it is hot enough when you drop a bit of the latkes batter and it starts to sizzle. Drop large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the oil, and flatten them down to form ½ inch patties. Brown on one side, and then flip and brown the other. Place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  5. Then put together! Latke, chicken, slaw, more latke. Serve immediately!
