Ingredients

  • 1 Pkg Bell & Evans Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Red onion, minced
  • 1 TB minced Garlic
  • 5 oz Tomato paste
  • 2 TB Light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 TB Cider vinegar
  • 1 TB Yellow mustard
  • 1 TB Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup Chicken stock or water
  • 24 Slider buns
  • 24 Patriotic picks*

Preparation

  1. Add minced onion, garlic, tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire and spices to a slow cooker. Stir together into a thick paste.
  2. Add chicken breasts and toss to coat in the sauce.
  3. Cover the slow cooker and cook on HIGH setting for 2-3 hours, or 4-6 hours on LOW. The chicken is ready to shred when you can easily pull it apart using two forks, or when it registers 165°F on a meat thermometer.
  4. Remove the chicken from the cooker and allow to cool slightly on a cutting board or platter. Use two forks to shred the chicken.
  5. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and add water or chicken stock. Stir until chicken and sauce are thoroughly combined.
  6. Assemble the pulled chicken sliders by portioning chicken onto slider buns and securing lids with a patriotic pick.*
  7. *Note: *Use store-bought patriotic picks, or craft your own with the kids while the chicken is cooking, using craft paper, colored pencils or stickers, glue and toothpicks.
