Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Sandwiches

Fiesta Chicken Sandwiches

The  fiesta chicken sandwiches essentially are a slider version of chicken soft tacos.

Piling the cooked tender  and  juicy chicken  on  top of a freshly warmed bun  is just heavenly. In some ways it reminds me of the Latin American torta milanesa, albeit that is made with breaded fried chicken and will have a refried bean base.

For this one I wanted something simpler and easier.

Chucking the chicken into  the cooker and covering with sauce could not be moreso. And the rolls warm in my convection oven in  about nine minutes.

  1. These look colorful and amazing! And I’m jealous of your warm & serve rolls…I could only find the Thaw, Rise, & Serve variety…a lot more time consuming! Well, if you call remember to take them out of the freezer time consuming!!!
