Shredded Chicken Sliders with Cherry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
Prep time: 15 minutes
3/4 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon canned chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce, finely chopped*
2 tablespoons cherry preserves
*Easy to find right in the canned vegetable section of your neighborhood grocery store.
4 cups chicken, cooked and shredded

Tip: Skip a few steps by using leftover chicken you have in the fridge, or better yet, pick up a prepared rotisserie chicken at your supermarket.
- Combine barbecue sauce, chipotle peppers and cherry preserves in a medium-size, microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high heat for 45-60 seconds, or until bubbling.
- Place shredded chicken in a separate medium-size bowl. Pour mixture over chicken and toss. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- On a sheet pan or serving platter, fill buns with chicken mixture. Serve warm.
Try the combination of chipotle peppers and cherries in barbecue sauce, or if you have your own favorite recipe or a bottle on hand, feel free to use it instead.

If storing leftover barbecue sauce in plastic containers after eating, spray your container with a nonstick cooking spray before each use to keep it from getting stained by your delicious sauce. Or, try putting your sauce into a regular dish prior to re-heating in the microwave.
