These Sweet and Spicy Chicken Sliders are perfect for lunch, dinner, parties, or game day. Total crowd pleaser!
So, Haley tried out for the Acro (acrobatics) team at her gym. And she made it. Exciting!
When we originally discussed the potential to make team, she knew she had to give up soccer and possibly dance. She didn’t even hesitate. Bittersweet, really. But as far as scheduling, I thought we’d catch a break.
When you make “team” you’re required to be at gym three days a week, several hours each day. And so far it hasn’t been consistent. Sometimes it’s MWF, other weeks it’s MTW. Sometimes it’s at 4:30, other times it’s at 5:30. It’s kind of making me batty, you guys. In combination with Trevor’s soccer practice, meal time has been a struggle.
We love these Sweet and Spicy Chicken Sliders. So much flavor. I usually roast my own chicken earlier in the day (or even the day before), but if I’m in a real pinch, a rotisserie chicken never disappoints.
