North Carolina Chicken Sliders
North Carolina is home to the oldest traditional barbecue in the U.S. This recipe takes North Carolina's signature slow-food pork dish and turns it on it's ear. This spicy/sweet chicken sandwich is really easy to prepare in the slow cooker and is perfect for chicken sliders served with a side or cole slaw or crisp watermelon slices.
We used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but you could use a pork tenderloin as well. The homemade North Carolina stlye barbecue sauce is easy to prepare and not only works in this recipe, but can be used as a BBQ sauce or condiment instead of store bought sauce.
These hand-held chicken sandwiches will be in high demand from party-goers or at your next family get together.
