I love a good crock-pot dish… AND this Pulled Ginger-Chicken Slider with Cilantro Slaw is fabulously good!!  This is the BEST pulled chicken recipe ever… then add the slaw and the mini little bun and the name ‘Slider’ AND you’ve got a Super Bowl Party!

I love Garden Gourmet Herbs- they’re just like fresh herbs right out of the garden but in handy little tubes that last for months in the fridge!  The BEST of both worlds, I’m telling ya!!

    This sounds delish, but the 1 cup of ketchup really freaks me out — that’s about 250 calories just in KETCHUP!!! Any suggestions for something a little skinnier???

      Hi Kathryn… I totally think that 1 C of tomato sauce would work just fine in place of the ketchup. It cooks all day down to a delicious sauce and I can’t see why that would totally work! Thanks for stopping by and please come back again soon :) xoxo~ Ruthie

    I’m gathering BBQ ideas for a party I’m throwing tomorrow night, and this seems like a perfect addition! Quick question: How far in advance can I make the slaw? Does it get better with age? Thanks for the great recipe!

      You’ll LOVE this recipe… it’s perfect for BBQ’s. You can make the slaw a day or so ahead. The flavors will meld and I think it tastes better with age but either way it is delicious! I hope you have a fun evening :) xoxo~ Ruthie
