Barbecue Chicken Sliders

Category: ,

Every family, every cook has their simple favorites, the recipes that are go-to's for busy nights or times where you just aren't sure what to cook.  They are not fancy, and they're not what you would make for your audition for Master Chef, but they are what you make for your family on, say a Tuesday.  You often don't even need to pull out a cookbook or smart phone to make it- you know how it's done.  What are some of your recipes/dinner ideas like that?  Let me know in the comments :)

This is one of those recipes for me.  It's not even really a recipe, just a meal idea that I can pull together in about 10 minutes that is a consistent winner.  My family got the idea from an old Kraft Food and Family magazine years ago, and we've all been making it since.  These barbecue chicken sliders are a healthy, tasty favorite that is always a good answer to the question, "what's for dinner?"

Oh, and since you likely won't need a whole chicken, these are either perfect to use up leftover chicken or they're good to keep in mind that you'll be able to get two meals out of your chicken.

Barbecue Chicken Sliders
from Kraft Foods

To feed 4 people generously

1- 12 pack of Hawaiian sweet rolls (any roll will do, but these put it over the top)
1/2 cooked chicken, about 2-3 cups (rotisserie is perfect here), pulled from bone and shredded
1 cup bbq sauce of your choice
1/2 pkg. broccoli slaw mixture
1/2 cup ranch dresssing

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken and the bbq sauce.  Drew actually prefers the chicken to be plain and the sauce to be spooned over the top, so this step is optional.  In another small to med. bowl, combine the ranch dressing and slaw mixture.

Assemble the sandwiches by cutting the rolls in half and, if desired, scooping out some of the bread to make the chicken and slaw better fit.  On the bottom half of the roll, place the chicken and top with some of the slaw.  Top with the top half of the roll, and done.

Serve with chips, fries, or a salad (broccoli, pasta, potato).
