Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken Slider Sandwiches

Notice that those are not the homemade wheat rolls from last night’s dinner!  We ended up making PBJ sliders for lunch, using some homemade blueberry jam that a friend gave us for Christmas!


These intended-to-be sliders are more like sandwiches.

Whatever bread will work.  And whatever “title” will work too!

Just going with the flow!

I went for the reduced sourdough loaf that was in the top of the freezer.

Slice. Slice. Slice.
