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!
And the winner is Debbie J. Congratulations!
