Pulled Chicken Slider Sandwiches and a Slow Cooked Super Bowl

by Laura

Today’s recipe comes from a new site that I recently discovered called $5 Dinners.  She even has a cookbook.  The recipe is for some simple Pulled Chicken Slider Sandwiches that you make in your slow cooker.  The sauce for the chicken is simple sauce that is kid friendly.  More of a tomato flavor than bbq flavor, but still delicious.  I do think that next time I will try to add a little smoked paprika and chili powder to give the sauce a little more depth of flavor.  You could even forego the whole made from scratch sauce and just throw in some of your favorite bbq sauce.

I was able to get 12 sliders from this recipe and the family gobbled them down.  I made a coleslaw that I served along side this, I also put the coleslaw on my slider with the chicken.  It was delish.  I’ll share that recipe with you tomorrow, there is a sneak pick of the slaw in the picture below.  Both would be wonderful for a Super Bowl party.

Now I also wanted to help give you some other ideas that you can use for your Super Bowl party.  Here’s the fun part, they are all recipes that are made in the slow cooker.  Why not enjoy yourself this upcoming Super Bowl Sunday and let your slow cooker do most of the work?  I have broken the recipes down into 3 categories – soups, sandwiches, tacos and nachos.  You could mix and match from the categories or use a couple from one category like do a taco bar with a couple of different meats.  The possibilities are endless to what you could do.  Hope this gives you some good inspiration and also makes the day a little more relaxing.

Tacos (a lot of these meats would also be great on nachos or in a quesadilla)

I made this last Sunday, and it was yummy. My sons all liked it, but I will definitely add some spice next time, it didn’t have near enough flavor for my husband and I. (I know you warned about that, but I wanted to try it the original way first before deciding what spices to add.) Thanks for the easy, yummy recipe!

It is on the menu for this week, along with your pineapple coleslaw.
