When adjusting chain slack, check while you're doing it by rotating the crank through a couple of revolutions. Neither the chainring nor the drive cog are perfectly round and static adjustment at any one point may mean too loose or too tight at other parts of pedal revolutions.
+1, no need to adjust shifter cable. And even if it were, it's a 10sec job.
