It’s the most wonderful (and stressful!) time of the year! For obsessed entertainers like myself, this is prime party time as well! We just had one get together this past weekend for some extended family, and by the time New Year’s Day arrives, we will have had at least 4 more holiday parties between family and friends.
It’s times like these that it’s imperative to have an arsenal of quick and easy, super impressive recipes that deliver big on bold flavors that will wow the taste buds!
These Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken Sliders are the perfect seasonal holiday appetizer that come together with just 15 minutes of prep!
It’s one of those dump 4 ingredients into a slow cooker and let it do it’s thing kinda recipe. And with the craziness of the holidays, I’m all about easy slow cooker recipes!
If you’re anything like me, you probably have some leftover cranberry sauce in the pantry and a bag of fresh cranberries in the fridge. Apple cider is also a pretty big staple in our house this time of year. And chicken broth… yeah, we always have that on hand too.
The mixture of cranberry sauce, apple cider, and chicken broth makes this chicken not only look beautifully festive, but have a slightly sweet taste that’s pairs perfectly with the pickled cranberry walnut salsa!
If you’ve never had pickled cranberries before… ermagherdddddd. It’s my favorite way to enjoy them! And when combining pickled cranberries with toasted walnuts, fresh mint, and the zing of fresh lemon zest. Pure magic. And yes, this pickled cranberry walnut salsa would be good with a variety of meats and is the perfect condiment for holiday dinner parties and charcuterie boards!
