One of the best parts of the Super Bowl for me is the Super Bowl Party. It’s a great opportunity to entertainment friends and family… and of course, eat some great food.
This year, we have been invited over to our friend’s house for the Super Bowl. With my crazy schedule, I wanted to pick a recipe that wouldn’t keep me in the kitchen all day, so I will be bringing my Slow Cooked Pulled BBQ Chicken Sliders. I find sliders work best at a party because there are usually so many other great things to eat that you hate to fill up on one particular sandwich.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is not only delicious but a little healthier for you than many of the pulled pork recipes you get out… plus it’s super quick and easy!
BBQ Pulled Chicken Sliders
3 lbs. boneless/skinless chicken breasts (or mix of boneless/skinless breast & thighs)
Sea salt & pepper
2 tsp. olive oil or grapeseed oil (for browning)
1 medium vadalia or sweet onion, sliced thin
1 cup Lillie Q Carolina BBQ Sauce*
Season chicken with sea salt and pepper, then brown chicken in 2 tsp. of olive oil or grapeseed oil (4 mins on each side). While chicken browns, place sliced onions in the bottom of a slow cooker.
Cut chicken breasts in half and place in slow cooker on top of onions. Pour Lillie Q Carolina BBQ sauce over the top. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
Shred chicken with two forks. Serve with a buffet of toppings including:
- Lillie Q Smoky BBQ*
- Lillie Q White BBQ Sauce* (If you have not had white BBQ sauce… Wow! Delish!)
- Creamy Coleslaw (if you’re short on time, grab it from your favorite deli)
- Diced dill pickle
*You can find Lillie Q BBQ Sauces and rubs in both our Downtown and Baldwinsville stores.
