BBQ Chicken Slider Recipe
- 1 c. water, hot
- 1 1/2 c. Thrive Seasoned Chicken Slices
- 1/4 c. Thrive Red Bell Peppers
- 4 oz bacon, diced
- 1/4 c. Thrive Chopped Onions - Freeze Dried rehydrated
- 1/2 tbsp. garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp. Thrive Chefs Choice
- 1/2 c. Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce
- 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
- Add hot water to chicken and red bell peppers in a bowl and let sit to reconstitute.
- Cook bacon over medium heat until almost caramelized. Add onions and sauté until translucent.
- Drain off half the bacon grease, then add garlic and chicken mixture and sauté until water is almost gone. Add Chef’s Choice, ¾ cup BBQ sauce, and smoke flavoring and heat through.
- Spread remaining BBQ sauce on small slider size buns and add chicken mixture as desired.
Regarding the onions, you can choose to rehydrate them first before adding them to the bacon or just toss them in straight from the can. I've done both and because the chopped onions are so small, they rehydrate right in the bacon. It is a personal preference and people do choose to rehydrate them in a small glass of water first, drain the water and toss in.
We rehydrate the chicken and peppers while cooking the bacon. Be sure to drain the water after rehydrating freeze dried foods. Since we're using the seasoned chicken slices, we give this about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, to rehydrate.
