Slow Cooker Bbq Chicken Sliders

Anyone in need of a quick and easy meal option should check out Kraft Recipe Makers!  I’m glad that I was chosen to try the new Kraft Recipe Makers product because it is not something that I would normally buy.  I have to say that I truly enjoyed this meal!

Slow Cooker Bbq Chicken Sliders :::

On those days that you have errands, appointments, school activities, work obligations, house cleaning . . . the list goes on and on.  By the time 5 o’clock rolls around you feel like buttering some bread and calling it dinner!  Tell me I’m not the only one that has considered a bread and butter dinner!?!  How nice would it be to have a hot, satisfying and nutritious meal just waiting for you to arrive home?

Kraft Recipe Makers offer seven flavors and you get to choose the cooking method.  There are skillet, oven and slow cooker meals.  The kit includes two savory sauces that along with your fresh ingredients will make one of three fantastic dishes that are listed on the box.  Or you can go off the box (like I did) and create your own Recipe Maker Masterpiece!  You can locate Kraft Recipe Makers in your grocery meat department or in the aisle with the sauces and seasoning packets.  My local Safeway had them stocked in both areas.

I tried the Hickory Bbq Recipe Maker and decided to make Bbq Chicken Sliders with Pineapple Pepper Slaw.  This kit comes with a Brown Sugar & Cider Vinegar Simmer Sauce and a Sweet Hickory Bbq Finishing Sauce.  All you need to do is place your preferred meat into the slow cooker, add the simmer sauce, cover, turn it on then run out the door to start your day!  Easy-Peasy!

 Once the chicken is finished cooking, remove from the slow cooker and shred with two forks.  Return it back to the slow cooker and pour the barbeque sauce over the shredded chicken.  Cook for another 10-15 minutes.

 While the chicken is finishing up, now is a good time to whip up some quick Pineapple Pepper Slaw!  This slaw is a great healthy side dish and also tastes fantastic on top of the bbq chicken sliders.

Feel good about skipping the drive-thru and getting a nutritious family dinner on the table!  Yep, Mom is a Rockstar!

    Re: you Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Sliders — I’m a little confused & hope you can clarify. Under chicken ingredients, you say “l box Hickory BBQ Beef Kraft Recipe Makers” but then in the instrucions, point #3 you say “Pour the Brown Sugar & Cider Vinegar Simmer Sauce over the chicken.” Do we use both products? The simmer sauce was not mentioned in the ingredients section. Look forward to your reply. Thanks in advance. Carolyn

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Carolyn! Yes, the Kraft Recipe Makers come with the simmer sauce and bbq finishing sauce. You do use both sauces. Pour the simmer sauce over the raw chicken and slow cook. When the chicken is done, that is when you will want to mix in the finishing bbq sauce. Hope that helps!
