Have any of you caught on to the food truck craze? When I was younger food trucks were packed full of frozen burritos and eggs from a jug. You certainly didn’t see any mile long lines for those trucks. Now they have become not only 5 star eateries but are also really unique. Nick and I have a few of our favorites that we follow on social media and whenever they are in our area we always jump in the car and go track them down. Nowadays food trucks have their own shows on cooking channel and Food Network. Whenever I get to try one that I have seen on TV previously, I always get really excited!

Last weekend we tried the infamous Burnt Truck and they have the most amazing sliders! We got every slider on the menu. Clearly, I am really trying to work on my beach body. They had a giant meatball slider that was incredible but the real star of the show was a fried chicken slider. You heard me right. All the fixings of a fried chicken dinner packed into a dinner roll. It’s like a portable heart attack. So what did I do? Headed back for seconds of course! I figure all those calories give me motivation on the Stair Stepper.

So in the interest of my personal health, I decided to whip up my own version at home. My logic is quite sound. You guys, they were SOOO good! Garlicy mashed potatoes, creamy pepper gravy, a big piece of fried chicken all between a King’s Hawaiian Bread Slider. Does life get any better?! And they were really easy too. I make fried chicken the cheater way. Fry it for a few minutes to get crunchy and then pop it in the oven to finish cooking. It is really quick, easy and doesn’t take forever on a week night. While the chicken finishes cooking, I make all the fixings.

You better believe that these sliders will be making appearances at our house all summer and I hope they will be at yours too!

    Now that I think of it, I don’t know if I’ve ever eaten from a food truck before! I love all the tv shows about them and I’m always reading about them for some reason I’ve never eaten from one before! I love that you guys bought one of each kind, haha! These look awesome 🙂
