With the big holiday coming you what to stay on the healthy side of things or maybe your just not the biggest fan of pork or beef. These Instant Pot Barbecue Chicken Pineapple Sliders are amazing for just that. Cheaper on the budget too when those brisket prices can be so darn expensive. While I do love a good brisket sandwich sometimes it’s just not worth the cost. We made these Instant Pot Barbecue Chicken Pineapple Sliders for a weekend dinner. They were perfect!
These Instant Pot Barbecue Chicken Pineapple Sliders pair perfectly with barbecue chips, baked beans, and even coleslaw. The pineapple goes great on top of the sandwiches but it’s not a must. You can have it on the side. We didn’t toast our sliders but found that it might be best to do so that way the bottom doesn’t become a soggy mess.
When it comes to the 4th of July I think these would be amazing to serve up to guests. Great for the little kids too for easy hand sandwiches. If you don’t want just barbecue chips you can do a display of different chips or different side dishes like suggested above. Instant Pot Barbecue Chicken Pineapple Sliders will be a family favorite!
Do you have a family favorite slider? Something special you like to make at the 4th of July? Love to hear about it!
