I must have been on a slider kick recently as I posted on my cheeseburger sliders. Maybe it was the awesome, sweet Hawaiian buns I had purchased, or maybe it was the killer whole smoked chicken that my kids devoured. It was probably both of those reasons, and hence why I decided to use the remaining smoked chicken and turn it into a slider. I think my oldest son has really got me in the mood for making sliders. His new thing is searing up thinly sliced ham and using small dinner rolls, or the sweet King’s Hawaiian rolls, searing those up as well, and devouring those for his brunch. He’s the one who doesn’t wake up and eat right away. It takes some persuading to get him moving in the morning. Go figure, he’s a teenager. These smoked pulled chicken sliders are something to be reckoned with. They have the perfect smoke, along with some sweetness from the barbecue sauce and rolls, and then a pickle to cut through it all. These are a real winner.
Let’s get started.
- 2 whole King’s Hawaiian rolls, sliced
- 1 cup of cooked, smoked chicken, shredded
- 1/4 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
- 2 tbsp water
- Pickle slices, optional
This serves one, so make as many as you would like with however much chicken you have.
These are extremely easy to make once you have the smoked chicken.
Shred your chicken and add it to a small pot. Add in the barbecue sauce, and the water, and give it a good stir. Cook on low heat until heated through.
Take the warmed chicken and add it to the two sweet Hawaiian rolls. Take a toothpick and skewer pickles through the top of the bun.
