Asiago Chicken Sliders
Ever since I returned to work, dinners have been quite a challenge. I get home and my husband is ready for a break to hand the baby over to me. And of course, I want to squeeze in all of the baby snuggles I can get! But then it’s time to cook dinner (and I’m usually too tired to want to cook anything). I feel like we have the same dinners every week and we’ve finally started to get kind of sick of the same old stuff.
The inspiration for these sliders came from my Parmesan Baked Chicken which we make multiple times a month in this house. For these sliders, I just cut the chicken into smaller pieces, swapped the Parm for Asiago cheese, and threw them onto some slider buns! Small changes, but we seriously loved these sliders! I am kind of in love with Asiago cheese lately with it’s slightly nutty flavor and sharpness.
The chicken comes out nice and crispy and juicy, but without being fried! Any of your favorite sandwich toppings will do. I topped mine with sliced avocado and some chipotle mayo.
