Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Chicken Sliders

Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Chicken Sliders with Ranch & Green Onion Slaw from www.missinthekitchen.com

Have you started planning you menu for the big game this weekend? These Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Chicken Sliders will be the hit of the party!  Plus I made a super easy slaw so you can serve them up Memphis style, my favorite!

The star of this barbecue sauce is a bit unexpected but ever so good!  It’s Musselman’s Apple Butter!  Yes barbecue sauce made with apple butter, it adds the perfect depth of flavor to the chicken and I gave it a little kick with some jalapeno jelly.  Not too hot of course, but just the right amount of spice.

So are you excited for the Super Bowl?  Honestly, I am really the only football fan in the house.  Isn’t that crazy?  I live with a houseful of guys and none of them like watching football!  Playing yes, watching, not really.

My favorite team has been the Broncos since I was a teenager, so I don’t really know who I will be rooting for, but I still like to watch.  The guys mainly watch for the commercials.  Everyone is equally excited for the food!

The fine folks at Musselman’s would like to send one of you a gift set including their fine apple butter, a cute little serving bowl and some great recipes!
