I'm so excited to be guest posting for Jaime today. I'm Amy and I usually blog over at Not Your Average Crazy. You may remember Jaime doing a guest post for me, featuring her Red Hot Fudge recipe. This is officially my first guest post ever, so a great big thanks to Jaime for asking me!
For some reason I've really been into slider sandwiches lately. Pulled pork, buffalo chicken, cranberry BBQ... so I asked myself what kind of slider recipe could I come up with. I have a book club meeting in two weeks and the book focuses a lot on Italian heritage. Plus, I really love pasta and wine. That's when it came to me: Chicken Parmesan Sliders.
|Forgive my mediocre food photography.|
And the best part? You cook the chicken in the slow cooker while you handle your business. Genius.
The whole family enjoyed this easy chicken recipe and trust me, that's saying something. I've never met more pickier eaters. And my daughter isn't even the worst one! I hope everyone here enjoys these as well. You're welcome to stop on by my blog and let me know what you think if you try this recipe out.
Chicken Parmesan Sliders
Makes 12 Sliders
3-4 boneless chicken breasts (mine were frozen)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 jar marinara sauce
1/2 cup water
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 cup of butter
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
12 Sarah Lee brand slider buns (or regular dinner rolls)
1. Cover bottom of slow cooker with the olive oil and place chicken breasts on top of the oil.
2. In separate bowl add marinara sauce, water, parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon garlic powder and crushed red pepper. Mix well and pour over chicken.
3. Cook on low 6-8 hours if frozen or 4-5 hours if thawed. Shred chicken halfway through cooking time.
4. When the chicken is done, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
5. Place desired amount of chicken on slider buns and top with mozzarella cheese. (I also sprinkled extra parmesan cheese on top of the mozzarella.)
6. Put the tops of the buns on the sandwiches and bake for 5 minutes.
7. While sliders are baking, melt butter and mix with 1 teaspoon garlic powder.
8. Brush sliders with garlic butter mixture as soon as you take them out of the oven.
9. Let sliders cool slightly.
10. Enjoy. (With wine.)
