Jamaican Jerk Chicken Sliders With Pineapple Salsa

Q: Why did Beethoven get rid of all his chickens?
A: They kept saying, “Bach, Bach, Bach!”

Nothing like a recipe that delivers big flavor but requires little work. That’s what we have today.

The slow cooked chicken gets a kick from the spicy jerk seasoning. The pineapple salsa packs a little heat, too, but also provides a lovely cool contrast.

4. Use a slotted spoon to remove chicken from cooker. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; discard bones. Using two forks, pull chicken apart into shreds. Return shredded chicken to cooker.

5. Turn slow cooker to high-heat setting. Cover and cook about 30 minutes more or until chicken is heated through.

6. Meanwhile make the salsa. In a medium bowl stir together pineapple, green onions, bell pepper, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, and lime peel.

What first struck me during my first listen to ‘M’, the new album by The Muchmores, was how irresistible the song lyrics are. Nine intricate little glimpses into melancholy stories. Seriously good.

Check out The Muchmores on Bandcamp, where you can buy their music.

Cheers!
