Crockpot Sriracha Salsa Chicken Sliders
The weather has been brutally hot here in the south. I didn’t think it could get any hotter until I made crockpot Sriracha salsa chicken sliders for dinner the other night! Not only were the sliders amazing, but the homemade papas fritas I made as a side were freakin’ bomb, especially with a side of Sriracha Ketchup!?
Thursday night was all about Sriracha!?
Red Gold Tomatoes has expanded their product line featuring the original Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. Some people put Sriracha on their fries, their snack mixes, their eggs and just about anything. So when Red Gold Tomatoes sent me over a box of their new products, I decided to make a simple crock pot recipe that can be eaten all year round. This is going to be great for football season, which is just around the corner. ?

I LOVE crockpot recipes because they are so easy to make and take little time. My mom used to make cheesy salsa chicken when I was a kid. All she did was throw salsa, cheddar cheese and light cream into a crockpot with chicken breast. She let it cook for four hours on high, shredded the chicken, and served it with tortilla chips. This was her go-to during football season. When I saw the Sriracha salsa in my box, I immediately thought of my mom’s recipe. I wanted to do something similar, but a tad bit healthier.
I turned crockpot on high and added two chicken breasts (.8lbs) with one tablespoon of olive oil. The chicken was skinless & boneless.
I set the crockpot to high and let the chicken cook for four hours.
I used the leftover salsa with my chips for a pre-dinner snack! I thought Sriracha in my salsa would be weird, but it was surprisingly good and had a unique flavor. It was sort of addicting. It had spicy, sweet and savory all in one. The prefect combination if you ask me. My friend refused to try it at first, but then found herself obsessed after the first bite. It’s pretttttty dang good.
I decided to make papas fritas as a side. I needed something to go with my Sriracha ketchup (which is so good on eggs by the way!)
I used my vegetable spiraler to cut the potatoes into thin slices.
I used garlic coconut oil for frying. I heated the oil on high and added the potatoes into the pan one handful at a time.
Once one side was brown, I flipped it over and let the other side cook.
*If you’re questions the coconut oil, don’t worry…they do NOT taste like coconut.
The Sriracha Ketchup has the perfect kick of spice and goes well with the sweet tomato flavors. You won’t find any corn syrup in this ketchup! People get so excited over the Sriracha Ketchup! Don’t forget to bring it to the tailgates with you because it’s also amazing on grilled chicken and hotdogs!
When the chicken is fully cooked, use a fork to shred the chicken!
*You could even use this as a dip if you wanted to.
Remove the chicken from the crockpot and add it to a serving bowl.
Use crackers, pita’s, bread, buns, or whatever you want to make your sliders!
Take it to the next level and add a slice of pepperjack cheese! 🙂
I hope you guys enjoy this recipe just as much as I did. ?
