Chicken Biscuit Sliders


One of my most favorite fast meals is sliders. Sliders, for anyone who may not know, are mini sammiches. It's the perfect way to get rid of leftover meat and biscuits. Since it's just my husband and I living here, we often don't go through a whole package of dinner rolls or a whole ham or a whole rotisserie chicken or a whole container of biscuits. But I hate, hate, HATE to waste food so we get creative in how to use them up without getting boring with our meals.

These sliders are made with biscuits and shredded rotisserie chicken but really, you can use whatever leftover breads and leftover meats you want. They're perfect for raid nights too because they're quick to make and easy to eat with one-hand while you're gaming. They also make good LAN party foods and will fill up your hungry guests without making a mess of the keyboards and controllers.



Chicken Biscuit Sliders

4-8 Servings | Total Time: 20 min | Journeyman

Mats:
  • 1 can Refrigerated Biscuits
  • 2 cups Chicken, cooked and shredded or sliced
  • 8 Tbl Barbecue Sauce
  • 4 Slices of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Lettuce Leafs
  • 8 Tomato Slices (Roma)
  • 16 Pickle Slices
Craft: Bake the biscuits according to package instructions. Let biscuits cool then slice in half. Spread 1/2 Tbl of BBQ sauce on each biscuit slice. On one half of a whole biscuit, layer 1/4 cup chicken, 1/2 slice of cheese, 1/2 lettuce leaf, 1 tomato slice and 2 pickle slices. Put them together and enjoy!

Strategies: You can buy a Rotisserie Chicken from the Deli section of your grocery store. One chicken will give you 4-6 cups of shredded chicken which is useful in many meals. This meal also works great with dinner rolls if you want to buy them pre-cooked and save about 10 minutes!

LFM: Apple or Pear slices with chips or fries and a soft drink.

Cost:
  • Refrigerated Biscuits $1.50
  • Rotisserie Chicken $5.00
  • Barbecue Sauce $1.00
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese $2.00
  • Lettuce $1.00
  • Roma Tomatos $0.50
