Pineapple Chicken Sliders

For fun appetizers that tide over even the hungriest of guests, try these mini sandwiches. My youngest daughter likes their small size and the tangy sweetness of the pineapple.—Maria Vasseur, Valencia, California

    I've never been a pineapple with meat, kind of person. I decided to give these a try as my family does like pineapple based chicken from our favorite Thai place. These we ok but we weren't fans of the seasoning. I think I need to work on tweaking the ginger and all to our taste.
