The ‘Bacon Chicken and Ranch’ combination of flavors has become known as ‘Crack Chicken’ in the food world simply because it’s So. Very. Good. So good, in fact, that you don’t want to stop eating it.
BACON CHICKEN RANCH PULL-APART SLIDERS
My Crock Pot Crack Chicken recipe has been wildly popular. I based these sliders on those flavors. However, I used a rotisserie chicken. These sandwiches are great for leftover chicken or turkey too.
Seriously, everyone that tries these loves them. They are great for tailgating and potlucks. They make an easy recipe to feed a crowd and the recipe can be multiplied, easily, when needed. However, don’t limit them to just for parties, my boys love these for dinner and after-school snacks.
INGREDIENTS AND SUBS
My best tip is whenever you make chicken, make extra because you can always use the extra for these sandwiches. You can roast, grill, or slow cook chicken for these sliders. It all works.
As well, if you don’t have time to make chicken pick up a rotisserie chicken or two at the grocery store.
And, of course, you can make them with regular-size buns instead of sliders.
Cheddar cheese tends to be oily therefore I really like a cheddar Colby cheese mix. You can use all cheddar if you prefer. Actually, you can use any cheese you have on hand. I used grated cheese but you can also use sliced cheese.
Furthermore, I used store-bought bacon bits because I was time-crunched. Fill free to cook bacon yourself. You’ll want to chop it before adding it to the sliders. They don’t pull apart easily if you have long strips of bacon.
I mixed Ranch seasoning, ground mustard, minced dry onions, and Worchestershire with one cup melted butter. Yes, I realize that’s a lot of butter and I tested the recipe cutting back on the butter. They just weren’t as good. Therefore, I recommend one cup of butter. I’m sure for this recipe you can sub margarine or a butter substitute. (I don’t recommend substituting butter in baked recipes like cake etc.)
As well, you can omit or sub some of the other seasonings, but this is what I used.
