Shredded Chicken Sliders with Raspberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce
3/4 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon canned chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce, finely chopped
2 tablespoons sugar free raspberry preserves
4 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
12 dinner rolls, halved
Combine barbecue sauce, chipotle peppers and preserves in a medium-size, microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high heat for 45-60 seconds, or until bubbling. Place shredded chicken in a separate medium-size bowl. Pour mixture over chicken and toss. On a sheet pan or serving platter, fill buns with chicken mixture. Serve warm. I think this would be good with orange marmalade too.
