I will admit it, I’m a sucker for Fall. Bring on the boots, blanket scarves and all things pumpkin. But one of our favorite parts of season will always be football. My son recently wrapped up his second year of flag football so now my husband and I are in total Game Day mode. Unfortunately my husband’s favorite team (I won’t mention the Irish or anything) are having a bit of a rough year. Therefore we compensate their losses with two of our other favorite “f” words – friends and food. I mean, we can totally eat our feelings while we enjoy some good company, right?
My mom raised me to be the “hostess with the mostest.” When it comes to my Game Day spread, I’m going to go big or go home. Normally I go for all finger foods – chips and dip, mini meatballs, cheese and crackers, and all the cookies. Foster Farms Crispy Chicken Tenders are a staple in my house. They are so easy to throw onto a tray and toss into the oven for a quick dinner. The family is also a huge fan which makes it a win for everyone!! Sometimes I will bake up a tray for our guests but this time around I decided to create little chicken sliders that make perfect Game Day munching. The prep was easy, they looked adorable on the platter and the sandwiches were gone in a matter of minutes. Quite honestly, I’m not sure why I didn’t think of these little guys earlier!
- Mini Slider Rolls (I love the sweet kind!)
- 4-6 Foster Farms Crispy Chicken Tenders
- 6 American Cheese Slices (cut in half)
- Choice of Garnishes
- 1. Begin by preheating the oven to 400. Place the tenders on foil on a baking sheet.
- 2. Cook the tenders 15-20 minutes, depending on desired crispiness.
- 3. Arrange buns on platter and place cheese slices on the bottom bun.
- 4. Once the tenders have cooked, cut them in half and place one half onto the bun.
- 5. Top with desired garnishes and condiments.
- 6. Serve and enjoy
As you can see, the recipe is fairly simple and you can easily add your own twist with buffalo sauce to make it spicy or ranch to tang it up. My son is a super picky eater and the fact that he ate not one but TWO sliders is a miracle in itself. The sweet rolls combined with the crispiness of the Foster Farms chicken tenders made these sliders the perfect game day snack for all of my guests! I am already planning new ways to spice these babies up for our next Game Day gathering.
Before we know it, this amazing Fall weather will creep away and football season will be over. While we can’t bet on our teams winning every time, at least I can promise my friends and family some tasty treats and good company!
