Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Happy, Happy Friday πŸ˜€

I don’t know about you, but I’m VERY excited for this weekend! My parents are coming down early tomorrow morning & we have a LOT going on this weekend! Not only is it Easter, but my wedding dress is ready for pick up!! All of the alterations are done & my Mom & I are going to go pick it up on Saturday afternoon!!! I’m BEYOND excited- I cannot wait to put my dress on. I LOVE that dress! I wish I could show Craig because I know he will love it, but he will just have to wait until May 27th πŸ˜‰

I’m actually hosting Easter at my house this year. My parents are going to be here, as well as my Sister, my brother in law, my ADORABLE little nephew (who is 4 months old now! I cannot believe it!) & my Aunt Sissy is also going to come! I LOVE having the family together…and especially since I get to cook the meal- WOOHOO! Our Easter meal is NOT traditional at all- no ham around here! Save the pigs πŸ˜€

Do you have a traditional Easter dinner? What is your favorite part of the Easter meal?

Anyways, I have a new recipe to share with you today. I feel like it’s been forever since I have posted a recipe, so I figure it’s about time! This recipe came to me when I was thinking of some of my favorite foods as a kid. Whenever my parents would take me to this certain restaurant I would ALWAYS order sliders. I loved them! Yes, I used to eat beef when I was little- I stopped eating it when I was 12 years old. Honestly the only thing that I liked that was beef were hamburgers. I HATE steak. It seriously grossed me outΒ (& still kind of does) & I hate how it takes so much effort to eat it. If I ever decided to eat beef again, which I doubt will ever happen, my first bite of beef would have to be a slider.

I decided to go on the idea of sliders, but make them chicken instead of beef.

Buffalo Chicken Sliders (Obviously it has to be buffalo…with my recent obsession.)

Ingredients
-2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
-1 package Pillsbury Simply Buttermilk Biscuits
-1/2 cup Frank’s buffalo sauce
-about 4 tbsp. Light Ranch dressing
-about 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese

Preparation
1. Cook biscuits according to directions
2. While biscuits are cooking, heat a greasedΒ pan over medium high heat. Add cut up chicken to pan & cook until no longer pink.
3. When the chicken is cooked, add the hot sauce to pan. Turn the heat down to low & let simmer in the hot sauce for about 2 minutes.

4. The biscuits should be done baking now, and once they are, cut each of them in half. To each of the halves add a scoop of the chicken & a squirt of Ranch dressing. (sorry to get all technical on you with the ‘squirt’ of dressing- haha!)

5. Add you choice of cheese (regular for Craig, Veggie Shreads for me πŸ™‚ ) to the biscuits, then place both sides together to form your slider.

6. Place the sliders into your preheated oven (from baking the biscuits) & bake until the cheese is melted.

Serve with additional Ranch for dipping, if you want πŸ™‚

Even if you don’t try these sliders, you HAVE to try those biscuits. They are SO GOOD & they taste homemade. I also love that the ingredient list- no artificial ingredients or flavors. Delish!

Before dinner I figured I would make a little treat for Craig’s co-workers…for the Easter holiday. They always tell Craig how much they enjoy my cooking, so I like to always make them little treats for the holidays πŸ™‚

Tonight’s choice was Mocha Chocolate Chocolate Brownies. (yes, I meant to type chocolate twice- they are REALLY chocolate-y)

Hopefully they like them πŸ™‚

Well, I’m off- I think we are getting a half day today at the office…since it’s Good Friday. I’m crossing my fingersΒ & toes that we are- that would be very nice!! I have a house to get ready for my ‘rents πŸ˜‰

TGIF!! πŸ˜€

  6. Holy Moly that looks nomtastic!

    I normally have a special Easter dinner with my family but this year I’m traveling home and that isn’t feasible. 😦 I’ll be up at 4:00am going to the airport though if that counts as extra special.
