Make these easy barbecue pulled chicken sliders by pairing shredded rotisserie chicken with homemade barbecue sauce for an easy weeknight meal. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 10 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer; cook 3 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring occasionally. Add chicken to ketchup mixture; stir to combine. Cook 2 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly heated.

Step 2

Spoon 3 tablespoons chicken mixture on bottom half of each bun; top each with 1 pickle chip and top half of bun.

Chef's Notes

For a less sweet option, use sliced dill pickles.

Not enough sauce

January 20, 2017
Flavor was good, but like many CL recipes, not enough sauce.  Certainly did not look like the photo.  If I made this one again, I'd double the sauce.  We did just use one regular sized bun vs. the slider buns.  We also added a slice of tomato.

This was an option for me on the Cooking Light Diet plan.  Very good.  Quick and easy too!  Slider buns are hard to find in my area so I used small, soft dinner rolls.  Will definately make again!

With my modifications to the chicken and sauce, these were great, but still quick and simple to put together. I used half boneless chicken breast, half boneless thighs and poached them in seasoned water, then shredded; reserving the broth for the sauce. Only used half the ketchup and brown sugar and proceeded with recommended measurements for remaining sauce ingredients, but added about a 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the broth from the chicken (depending on how thin or thick you like your sauce). Served with a green mixed salad dressed with light ranch dressing.

Tried this and it was great. I also added a little more water to the sauce and now my children are asking for it again tonight.

This was a very good recipe, very quick and easy. I used red wine vinegar because I didn't have cider vinegar and it still turned out really good.
