Happy Sunday, friends! I’ve had a lazy morning catching up on Modern Family and taking Hoss for a walk, followed by working on final revisions for my fall class. I’m taking a break from homework to tell you about the awesome buffalo chicken sliders I made last night at our first annual holiday party.
Last night, Jason and I had a group of friends over to celebrate the holidays and enjoy some time together. We knew we didn’t want to serve a meal because that can be pretty stressful, but we wanted to offer appetizers and snacks that were delicious, filling, and didn’t require too much work. Is that possible? YES! I’m the queen of easy – the less work and stress before having people over, the better! I wanted to be able to enjoy our company rather than worrying about food all night. I decided to make my easy, 3 step buffalo chicken sliders.
Took this picture of Jason using the “portrait” mode on my camera – love it.
Also, I forgot to take pictures last night – I guess that means I was having too much fun!
3 Step Buffalo Chicken Sliders
- Chicken breasts (we used 4 chicken breasts to serve a total of 8 people and had leftovers)
- Slider-sized pretzel bubs (we got ours from Costco)
- Frank’s Buffalo Sauce (or a sauce of your choosing – BBQ, teriyaki, etc(
Bake chicken breasts, covered, in oven at 400 degrees for 35 minutes
Take baked chicken breasts out of the oven and put in Kitchen Aid mixer. Mix until shredded.
If you don’t have a Kitchen Aid Mixer, buy one. Just kidding! Use two forks to manually shred the chicken. It will take a bit longer, but you get the same result.
Put shredded chicken in the crock-pot on heat level “low.” Add approximately 1 cup of Frank’s Buffalo sauce for every 2 chicken breasts.
BOOM! It’s seriously as easy as that. I typically prep this about 2 hours before guests arrive so the chicken has time to really soak in the sauce. I like offering blue cheese crumbles and ranch dressing for a side if people want to fancy up their slider a bit.
