Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Sliders

Are you looking for an easy weeknight meal? This meal is perfect for kids, adults and you could even make these for guests! It's also my third recipe in the Meal Maker Challenge! To learn all about it ready my previous post here.

H-E-B Natural Chicken Breasts are an affordable way to eat chicken that is antibiotic, additive and preservative free . Be sure to look for it with the green packaging in the meats section both this week and the next time you go grocery shopping at H-E-B!



I love meals like this where you can change things up based on your preferences! You can choose your favorite brand of barbeque sauce and whatever kind of roll you prefer. You could use mini hoagies like me (I thought they were too cute!) or of course use regular hoagie or kaiser rolls. Switch these up however you prefer. Remember that because chicken is so much leaner than a meat like pork, you will want to make sure you have a great topping to add both flavor and moisture. Cole slaw is a great way to do that. Since I was looking for an easy weeknight meal, I just picked up the H-E-B prepackaged cole slaw mix next to the other packaged salad mixes. I suggest one that isn't already mixed with the sauce so it stays nice and crisp until you want to use it. I loved the contrast of texture and the bright colors it brought to my sliders.
