Homemade BBQ Chicken Sliders + Giveaway!

Thank you to Hamilton Beach for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always I only work with brands I use and love. Thank you for helping me support them. 

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to start thinking about another fun ‘holiday’–at least that’s what we call it in our house: Superbowl Sunday! I love everything about Superbowl Sunday, the big game, the family time and especially the foodOver the next few weeks I will be sharing some of my favorite party recipes. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite recipes: Homemade BBQ Chicken Sliders. 

Let’s talk about these sliders for a minute. First, they aren’t a ‘quick and easy’ appetizer that you can whip up in 30 minutes. I won’t lie, these take a little time and effort…but, the result is SO worth it. The slider buns are the perfect blend of a delicious roll and a sweet bread. And the chicken? Tender and delicious, with the BBQ sauce slow cooked into the chicken, they almost melt in your mouth.

One of the best parts of this recipe is that you can slow cook the chicken. I also used my Hamilton Beach® Professional 14 Cup Dicing Food Processor to shred the chicken! I hate spending time manually shredding chicken, it can be so time consuming. My Hamilton Beach Food Processor made shredding chicken so easy. It is one of my favorite kitchen tools that makes my life so much easier. It is one of those tools that you can use for many different things, including: dicing and slicing veggies and fruits, shredding chicken or other meat, and even kneading dough (how cool is that?!). It also features an adjustable blade that has 14 different thickness settings, which is nice – I can slice veggies into thinner pieces for our little one and larger ones for the adults. I highly recommend the Hamilton Beach Professional 14 Cup Dicing Food Processor, it’s a must-have tool for any kitchen! 

  A few of the other features of this amazing Food Processor are:

  • Dice cubes, slice thick to thin, shred, knead, chop, mix and puree
  • Easy Stack & Snap™ assembly with no difficult twisting
  • Heavy-duty construction
  • Includes 5 attachments and storage case
  • 14 cup, BPA-free bowl with pour spout and leak-free seal
  • Full liquid capacity – up to 14 cups
  • Dishwasher safe blades, bowl, and lid
  • Function guide eliminates guesswork
  • Easy-clean touchpad controls with LED indicator lights
  • 3-in-1 Big Mouth® feed tube:
    • Large tube fits whole foods for less precutting
    • 2 smaller tubes hold thin foods upright
  • Storage case for accessories
  • 2 speeds plus pulse
  • 5 year limited warranty
