Who doesn’t love potlucks, picnics or chicken? Well, how about if you combine the chicken with Pesto sauce and Tzatziki and make sliders? Is a great combination for a few simple reasons:
First, in a hot summer you do not want to roast a chicken for hours? Is best to keep the home cool.
Second, why Pesto and Tzatziki? Simply because picnics and potlucks are usually outdoors and you do not want to use mayonnaise and leave the dish without refrigeration for long periods of time.
And sliders? Yep, easy to grab finger foods, smile.
