My favorite part of football season? The food, of course! I mean, as much as I love to watch our beloved Buffalo Bills, more often than not, they’re losing. But at least I’ve got some delicious, real food tailgating snacks to soften the blow! And these Whole30 compliant BBQ Chicken & Ranch Sliders are definitely making our Sunday afternoons a lot better!
This is absolutely one of the simplest recipes I’ve ever made — The chicken is made in the slow cooker, so it’s almost totally hands-off (plus completely fall apart tender once it’s ready). And then the sweet potato rounds are roasted in the oven until they’re crispy. Pretty much all you need to do then is assemble the sliders – Top each round with the bbq chicken, red onion, herbs, and compliant ranch dressing. What could be easier than that?
EASY CROCKPOT BBQ CHICKEN & RANCH SLIDERS (Whole30 and Paleo)
Delicious Whole30 compliant roasted sweet potato rounds topped with bbq chicken, red onion, ranch, and cilantro. A really simple, crowd-pleasing Paleo appetizer!
Crock Pot BBQ Chicken
- 1 lb chicken breasts, trimmed
- 3/4 cups compliant bbq sauce divided
Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 3-4 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup compliant ranch
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 2 tsp cilantro
- salt & pepper to taste
Prepare the Chicken
Lightly season the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the crockpot with half of the BBQ sauce.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
Once the chicken is fall apart tender, remove and shred with two forks. Return the chicken to the crock pot for another 10 minutes. ⠀
Roast the Sweet Potatoes
Preheat your oven to 400.
Wash potatoes and slice in 1/4 inch rounds. Toss with olive oil, season lightly with salt & pepper, and lay on a lined parchment sheet.
Bake for about 12-14 minutes, turning once halfway through, and watching closely near the end.
Assemble the Sliders
Just before serving, remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and mix with the remaining BBQ sauce.
Top each slice of sweet potato with about a tablespoon of chicken, a drizzle of ranch, some diced red onion, and cilantro.
