This is my second savory post that I have shared with you this week! I think I am on a roll (or just trying to lose some). I am such a sweetaholic. Is that a word? Well it should be. My favorite recipes are the sweet ones so naturally that is why I have shared so many of them with you!

For instance my Blackberry Pie Bars, have you had those? Soft, buttery shortbread crust and the best blackberry filling! Or my Strawberry Shortcake Icebox Cake? That is what dreams are made of.

But I realize that most of you don’t eat sugar for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And if you do, don’t worry we have so much in common already!

When I can’t have sugar, I have buffalo sauce. Buffalo sauce is a way of life in the Mercurio home. We can’t live without it. But if you combine buffalo and pretzel you get the equivalent of  a little slice of heaven. Last week I shared Buffalo Pretzel Chicken Bites with you and they were a real hit. So today I made Fried Chicken Buffalo Pretzel Sliders. Game changer!

I used my easy fried chicken recipe. It is quick and easy. Plus its a hybrid version (half fried, half baked) that way you can pop it in the oven and forget about it while you prepare the toppings.

We keep things simple around here with just  provolone cheese, fried chicken, a little lettuce and tomato, an onion ring and a whole lotta buffalo sauce. Pile all that on a pretzel bun and you’ll be on everyone’s party invitations all summer long. 😉

Instructions
  1. Buttermilk Fried Chicken: Soak the chicken breast in buttermilk, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, pepper and hot sauce for 8-10 hours or over night.
  2. Preheat skillet with about 1 inch deep of vegetable oil. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and place on a plate. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl combine the flour, bread crumbs, granulated garlic, paprika, and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Shake off excess.

  4. To assemble sliders: Cut each pretzel slider in half and toast them lightly. Place a piece of chicken on each slider. Top with a slice of provolone cheese. Drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons buffalo sauce. Top with lettuce and tomatoes, the onion ring and the remaining bun. Serve immediately.

    These look amazing, I am also a big buffalo fan but my kids think it’s too spicy. I’ll make some with sauce for me and some without for them 🙂
