There are few things that my boys love more than chicken nuggets + football. Why not combine them into one winning team?!

Football party food definitely doesn’t have to be fancy, and you certainly don’t want to spend all of your time in the kitchen instead of watching the game (or chatting with friends). These Chicken Nugget Sliders combine crispy fried chicken, gooey cheese, and soft little buns for the ultimate game day grub!

Tips For Making Chicken Nugget Sliders;

  • Add your favorite condiments such as ketchup or mustard
  • Dress them up with a spicy mayo for adults
  • Add some lettuce for extra crunch
  • Mozzarella or Provolone would also work well
  • Serve with dips
