We Got Game

Food Network

Does football bore you to tears as it does me (guilty)? Welll maybe except when my home team makes it to the Super Bowl. Therefore, I'm taking one for the team by joining the festivities this year and I’m upping the anti with a pre game warm up with some heat with these buffalo chicken sliders. I hope that victory is in the stars for your team, regardless, these might earn you a victory dance after all. Enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Adapted from food network
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 cup hot sauce, such as Frank's Red Hot
12 small rolls, such as Hawaiian or Parker House rolls, buttered and griddled
Ranch dressing, for serving
1 cup blue cheese crumbles
Tomato slices, for serving
Green leaf lettuce, for serving
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the oil. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt, pepper, the brown sugar, paprika and cayenne. Sear both sides of the chicken until golden, about 4 minutes. Add in the hot sauce to the skillet. Bring to a simmer and then place in the oven to finish off, and the chicken registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
Let the chicken cool, and then pull the meat with your hands. Adjust the seasoning if necessary, and then place back in the oven at BROIL until crusty and caramelized on top, about 4 minutes.
Sandwich Build: Place some chicken on the bottom buns, top with ranch, blue cheese crumbles, tomatoes and then lettuce. Serve.

You're not alone. Football drives me nuts but I bear with it because my hubby watches stuff that he doesn't want (with me) so it's balances out. These sliders look absolutely delicious. Want to try these!
