Pulled “Pork” Sliders

Pulled chicken slider on a homemade biscuitsI wanted to enjoy the Super Bowl festivities, but lighten it up at the same time.  For the purposes of a pretty picture, I made mini biscuits with black pepper.  The pulled “pork” is actually chicken breast.  The best part of this recipe is that the entire thing is cooked in a slow cooker.  I love a “set it and forget it” recipe every now and then.  I found this recipe on My Recipes.  I added cayenne pepper to the recipe, because it needed a little kick of heat.

Buttermilk biscuitsI am so proud of my biscuit making skills.  I can get great flaky layers and have made several variations with the basic recipe.  This specific version I added about 3 teaspoons of ground black pepper.  The most perfect biscuit recipe that I have found is this recipe in Garden and Gun Magazine.  I think the secret is rubbing the soft butter on the layers of the biscuits, I find that chilled pieces of butter placed into the layers gives it even more flakiness.

The cool layer on the spicy sweet bbq pulled chicken is a healthier version of coleslaw.  I found this recipe on Two Healthy Kitchens.  This lightened version of coleslaw, has greek yogurt and apple cider vinegar giving it the typical tangy flavor that coleslaw provides.

When you put it all together, you get a fabulous bite of sweet spicy, hot and cold, on a flaky buttery biscuit.
