Chicken Bacon Ranch Slider Sandwiches - (Low-Carb Keto option too)



Last night I wasn't sure what was going to be for dinner.  It was getting late and I needed to come up with a plan so I walked to the deep freezer and chose a package of chicken breasts.  I cooked them in the microwave in water with a tablespoon of chicken bouillon soup base and from there decided to make a 'slider' sandwich but a chicken, bacon ranch version.

We used keto buns but obviously any hamburger style bun will do. 
I didn't measure anything, and honestly, that's just the kind of recipe this is - you can play with all the amounts.  I'll try to do a guesstimate on some of the items to give you an idea but honestly, it's mostly just common sense mixed with a little whatever you like best.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Sliders

Cooked, diced chicken breasts - 2 or 3 depending on the size of yours
1 fresh tomato
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/2 c ranch dressing of choice
Cooked, crumbled bacon
Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Hamburger Buns (I used Keto Culture brand since we are usually doing low-carb in our house)

To the cubed chicken breasts add the 1/2 c mayonnaise, fresh tomato diced, about 1/3 c crumbled cooked bacon pieces and about 2/3 c shredded cheddar.  Mix. If it's too dry add a little more mayo.  If you like more bacon or cheese - go ahead.  Less bacon or cheese?  Do that if you wish. 

Use some butter to heavily butter a baking pan.  Place the bottom bun in the buttered pan.  Top with scoops of the chicken mixture.  Heavily drizzle ranch dressing over the sandwiches and top with the bun.  Brush the tops with some of the butter, melted or even an egg wash if you wish.  Pop it into a 350 degree oven and bake about 15-17 minutes until heated through.

Extra chicken filling mixture is a perfect casserole, just tuck in along side the sandwiches to bake or just make more sandwiches with it.    The size of the pan you use depends on how many sliders you are making.  You can see we made 5 and heated the leftover chicken mixture separately as a casserole.




I always have crumbled real bacon on hand in the freezer, which I like to put on a paper plate and heat in the microwave to crisp up. 


Mixing up the filling; use more or less bacon and cheese and tomato based on what you prefer.

Scooping the filling onto the buns.

Top each slider with a dose of your favorite ranch dressing then put the top bun on, brush with melted butter and bake until heated through - about 15-17 minutes.
