Chimichurri Crispy Chicken Sliders

Over the summer, I discovered chimichurri sauce.   And now I am hooked.  It seems to me that most ” American” condiments often contain a lot of sugar, so it was so fun to discover this magic green sauce that is tangy, and oh so flavorful.

Chimichurri sauce is an Argentinian sauce that I am adding it to traditional “American” dishes.  This summer I drizzled it on my sweet corn,  added it to my bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches, and now I have added it to a crispy chicken slider sandwich, and I am so happy I did!  These sliders were crunchy, tangy, savory and comforting.  So perfect to serve for any game day!

On Saturdays, throughout the fall you can find my family at home watching the Iowa Hawkeyes play football.  My husband grew up in Iowa City just down the street from Kinnick Stadium, and we are lifelong fans.  I picked up Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips and Hanover® Mini Pretzels at Meijer and put together this delicious spread for my family!

I found the Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips in the freezer aisle, and I found the Snyder’s of Hanover mini pretzels in the snack aisle at Meijer.   You can always see these products online at Meijer’s website.  You can order these items that are available for pick up.

This is a great meal to share with friends or to have as a family while tailgating or watching football at home.  I love how easy it is to throw these sliders together; you can prep the chimichurri sauce in advance and store it in the fridge or even freeze it.   The chicken is precooked and just needs to be heated up in the oven for a few minutes.   The pretzels.  Well, the pretzels come ready just to put in a bowl and enjoy.

Chimichurri sauce is super flavorful and potent.  A teeny bit of sauce goes a long way; I think my favorite ingredient in chimichurri sauce is the red wine vinegar.  It gives it a tangy flavor that makes it amazing!

I love how Tyson chicken strips have a slight kick to them; it tastes so good with the sauce.  I also love how  Tyson Strips: No antibiotics ever; 100% all natural; chicken raised with no added hormones or steroids; grown on American farms chicken raised with no added hormones or steroids; grown on American farms.
