Mini Pulled Chicken Sliders With BBQ Honey Sauce

Mini Pulled Chicken Sliders

There is something about a slider that makes it sound so much more interesting than a regular sandwich. According to 5280 burger bar, It is believed the term slider came from the Navy where greasy burgers were called sliders because they could slide around so easily. Now the term is applied to small bite-sized sandwiches as well. Either way, they are easy to eat and easy to pack. Here‘s a slider twist with pulled chicken and Manuka Honey BBQ sauce.
