Pulled Chicken with Apple-Cucumber Slaw

This has got to be one of the quickest and easiest dinners ever!  It has great flavor combinations and textures.  It is a wonderful summer alternative to hamburgers.  Using rotisserie chickens sure save a lot of time! I'm all for quick and easy.

Pulled Chicken with Apple-Cucumber Slaw
from Everyday Food Magazine

1 rotisserie chicken (about 2 1/2 lbs.)
1 Granny Smith apple, cut into matchsticks
2 English cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
2 green onions (green parts only), thinly sliced
1/4 c mayonnaise
3 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 TBSP cider vinegar
1/4 c honey
coarse salt and ground pepper
 4 hamburger buns

Shred chicken, discarding skin and bones.  Stir together apple, cucumbers, green onions, and mayonnaise.  In a large skillet, heat chicken, mustard, vinegar, honey, and 1/4 c water, over medium-high, tossing to combine, until warmed through, 3-5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Divide chicken mixture among buns and top with apple-cucumber slaw.
