Pulled BBQ Chicken Sliders

Barbara Oseland


These little sammies are the best! Great for a quick dinner, lunch, a snack or appetizer for "just the guys" and most of the items you already have. I would have taken a picture, but they were gone before I could get to the camera, so I had to use another picture.

How to Make Pulled BBQ Chicken Sliders


  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place in a counter top electric skillet with the onion, garlic and just enough water to cover (about 1-1/2 cups). Add the barbecue sauce, vinegar and a few drops hot sauce and bring to a boil. Cover skillet, reduce the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove the chicken from the sauce and shred with two forks.
  2. Add chicken back into the skillet and boil the sauce, skimming occasionally any fat, until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Add any additional hot sauce, salt or pepper if needed.
    Toast buns in the oven for a few minutes to become warm and a bit crunchy, place cheese on the bun, and spoon the mixture onto the rolls.
  3. Note: I make my own sauce that already has brown sugar in it, so I have not added in any here. You may want to add brown sugar to this depending on what bbq sauce you choose.
