Thanks to rotisserie chicken, these cheesy, smoky sliders are a snap to make on a busy day. The special barbecue sauce really takes it up a notch. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup beer or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 8 slider buns, split
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded smoked cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat broiler. In a large saucepan, mix first six ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken; heat through.
Place buns on a baking sheet, cut side up. Broil 3-4 in. from heat until lightly toasted, 30-60 seconds.
Remove tops of buns from baking sheet. Top bottoms with chicken mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3-4 in. from heat until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes. Add bun tops.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled chicken mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.
Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Don’t turn your back while broiling the buns or melting the cheese. They go from perfect to well-done in a blink.
  • You can also use leftover shredded chicken. We like the added flavor and convenience of starting with rotisserie-cooked.
  • Smoked cheddar adds another layer of flavor, but regular cheddar, provolone or mozzarella would taste great, too.
