  • For Slaw:
  • 1/2 head red cabbage shredded, about
  • 1 small jalapeño diced small
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Salt to taste
  • For BBQ Chicken:
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup kosher for Passover
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • For sweet potato latkes:
  • 5 cups sweet potatoes peeled and shredded with a box grater or a food processor
  • 2 tablespoons onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 egg
  • 2 tablespoons potato starch (or matzo meal works too)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup oil or schmaltz I used canola, but peanut works great as well


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Then put together! Latke, chicken, slaw, more latke. Serve immediately!
