Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream or Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon lime juice and lime zest. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the broccoli coleslaw mix, red pepper, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, pomegranate seeds, 2 teaspoons lime juice and sugar.
  3. Add the sour cream mixture to the broccoli-pomegranate slaw mixture and lightly toss. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. While the broccoli-pomegranate slaw is chilling, combine the cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Dredge each chicken breast in the spice mixture until well-coated on each side.
  5. Grill the chicken, covered, over medium heat 4 to 7 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove from the grill and cut each chicken breast in half so you have 8 pieces.
  6. Grill the buns, cut sides down, 30 to 60 seconds or until toasted.
  7. Serve the chicken on the buns topped with broccoli-pomegranate slaw.
