Buffalo Chicken Sliders #AppetizerWeek @PotsandPans

January 24, 2014 by Jenny Melrose

Welcome to Day #5 of Appetizer Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Kristen from Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. Whether you are a Broncos fan or a Seahawks fan , we wanted to make sure you had plenty of ideas for your game day spread. Each day we will be dishing up a different set of appetizers. We hope you enjoy this fabulous group of recipes. Tune in each day starting with Monday, January 20 and ending on Saturday, January 25.

If you’ve been following along with Appetizer Week, then you’ve already seen my Pulled Pork Sliders and Empanadas Mini Pies.  We’re all about the variety of choices of meat when it comes to any sporting event food.  So, to round it all out, I’ve put together our Buffalo Chicken Sliders.  These are so easy to put together and once again are the perfect bite size since they are on slider rolls.  Plus, they add a little heat to the party!

The reason I love these for a party is because you can make the chicken ahead of time and just have everyone assemble their own.  Otherwise, if you let them sit for too long, the roll is going to get soft and mushy from the hot sauce and blue cheese dressing.

I do love a good messy slider though, don’t you?  My tip is to prepare the cooked chicken ahead of time.  I have a tendency to forget and the quickest method for us is poaching.  I just let it simmer in boiling water and Italian seasoning while I run around and chase my girls.

    I was just on the Pots and Pans site, and that Veg-a-Peel looks awesome…I could definitely use a new peeler…mine gets heavy duty action with all the veggies we eat here!

    Messy sliders are definitely my favorite and these look delectable–especially with the buffalo sauce and blue cheese dressing 🙂
