I just got back from an amazing trip to Hawaii. My body is a little confused as to why it’s awake when Hawaii time says it should be sleeping. I’m floating on fumes and memories of surfing and eating in a lush tropical paradise. I decided that I’m going to spend all of my time and energy moving forward to figure out how I can move my whole family there to live. Even if it’s in a cardboard box. Ahh….
The Super Bowl is only a couple days of way and I’ve been trying to think of some “Dude Food” for the big game.
These Jalapeno Popper Chicken Sliders are so simple and easy. The idea came to me as I was running which is ironically when most of my food ideas pop in my head. I used rotisserie chicken because I love the texture but you could also use regular cooked and shredded chicken too.
I thought that coating the buns with Panko crumbs and toasting them until golden brown would give them a jalapeno popper flare. I loved the way it tasted with a slight crunch. I will say that some of it came off on top of the chicken when I assembled the sandwiches. Flawed concept…or genius idea. You decide.
A little sprinkle of bacon crumbles completes the sandwich by giving it that little salty pop.
