Sometimes you just gotta cut corners when cooking, especially when you’re in a hurry or just don’t want to make everything from scratch. That’s perfectly o.k! Not a cardinal sin of cooking. If you read labels and examine the ingredients list of some of today’s pre-packaged items, you can sometimes find some fairly decent alternatives.
These chicken sliders and apricot mustard sauce are a quick and easy way to make a great dinner or lunch. Hey, add an egg on top of the slider and you have breakfast. Using the frozen chicken strips really saves some time and they are quite tasty. Just make sure you don’t overcook. What makes this sandwich simply fabulous is the sauce. The combination of the sweet of the apricot jam (look for natural fruit spread) and the tanginess and kick of the dijon mustard really adds to the flavor profile.
Then you mound on lots of greens, lots and lots of greens, any type and you’re getting more nutrition. I happened to have arugula in my crisper. If I’d had watercress, that would have been on the sandwich. I love those greens that are loose and colorful, too…that’s why I suggest the European blend.
Enjoy the sliders. It’s a meal in itself. But, if you want to do sides then I’m thinking the Eastern European Potato Salad!
