These Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken Sliders are simply amazing. Simply, awesomely, amazing. They are so easy and are just jam-packed with flavor. You can also serve the chicken over rice if making it into a slider isn’t your thing. But, that sweet and tangy chicken between a King’s Hawaiian Roll – especially those Jalapeno Rolls – is simply divine!
What goes in chicken sliders?
The truth is you can put whatever you want in a chicken slider! I really mean that. But, if you need a little more inspiration, here are a few ideas:
- Mini slider buns or rolls – I love the King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for sliders.
- Cooked and seasoned chicken of your choice – You can grill, fry, or bake your chicken. I like cooking mine in the crockpot!
- Slice of Cheese – While I don’t use cheese in this recipe, I know lots of sliders that do. Cheddar, Swiss, and pepper jack cheese are great for these little bites of goodness!
- Lettuce or spinach leaves – You could absolutely add some leafy greens to a slider for a fresh crunch!
- Sliced tomatoes – I love adding tomatoes to sliders for more of a sandwich feel.
- Condiments – Give me all the condiments! I am using a BBQ sauce for this recipe, but it’s very common to find mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup on sliders.
What is the best way to shred chicken breast?
There are many different ways to shred chicken. With any method, you will want to remove the bones and skin before shredding. Here are three ways you can shred your chicken:
- Fork Method: This is the method I use for this recipe. I first allow the chicken to cool a bit. Then, use two forks to pull it apart along the grain. It’s that simple!
- Hand Method: For an even quicker, but tiny bit messier approach, tear and shred the slightly cooled chicken by hand.
- Mixer Method: Now, if you wanna get all fancy, try out the mixer method. Cut cooled chicken into chunks and use a stand mixer with a paddle attachment on low speed for efficient shredding.
What goes with chicken sliders?
Round out your plate with some sides! Chicken sliders go with just about anything! Here are a few of my favorites:
- Chips & Dip – You could do regular old potato chips with some store-bought French onion dip. Or, if you feel up to it, grab a bag of tortilla chips and whip up my Cheesy Bacon Corn Dip.
- Salad or Slaw – I think the freshness of a slaw or salad would go so great with sliders. You can grab a ready-to-go salad kit or try your hand at my Vinegar Slaw.
- Soup – Soup and sandwich go together like peas and carrots. Don’t you think?! Try my Easy Tomato Soup with Bacon. Yum!
- Baked Beans – This might be my personal favorite. I love good, ole, hardy baked beans. If you love baked beans, you will absolutely fall in love with my Bacon Brown Sugar Baked Beans!
- Macaroni and Cheese – There is not a sole around that will turn down mac n’ cheese. So, here is a safe and easy way to ensure your dinner guests love their side with my Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese.
