Spicy Peach Chicken Sliders

I remember when slider sandwiches first became so popular and you could go to the grocery store and buy slider buns.  I don’t know about your store but apparently, the buns weren’t a success at my store.  When I went to go buy some last week, I went to 3 different places and then finally gave up and used potato rolls.  Don’t get me wrong- these potato rolls were delicious.  I was just surprised the buns were hard to find.  If you have the same problem, you can substitute regular hamburger buns, potato rolls or any bread you prefer.  Or you can make your own with this recipe.

    Hi Katie, I love the idea of the peach sliders ( peaches are my fav), but my ? For you is….can I substitute chicken thighs for chicken breasts? I digest them better, since having a gastric bypass.

    Has anyone tried these as lettuce wraps instead of on buns? My husband is allergic to most grains.
