Week 4 – Crispy Chicken Sliders with Dill Pickle Slaw

Happy Sunday Football Fans!

This week is a good NFL Eats week… these sliders have become one of my favourites! I am a big fan of dill pickles… so when I started making this Coleslaw it was to go as a side to Burgers… then i started topping it on pulled pork and then I though… what about on a Crispy Chicken sandwich… and well its definitely the best out of the 3!

These really are a TOUCH DOWN!
