Triple Berry Kahlua Crisp with Double the Crumble.
Could my recipe names be any longer?
Actually, there is also a little chipotle honey drizzle, but somehow I stopped myself from throwing that in there too.
I have issues. Issues with trying to stuff way too much good stuff in one itty bitty slider bun. I had all these flavors going through my head, and then I just couldn’t stop with just one. The slaw is must, the crispy onions are the perfect topper and while the chipotle honey drizzle is not a must, it is pretty darn good.
It’s a little sweet, a little spicy and all things good, spring/summer and barbecue cookin. Although, I will never understand why fried chicken is consider a barbecue summertime food. I mean, it’s fried (or in this case oven-fried) and has nothing to do with the grill? Who knows and who cares, it’s a southern classic and I don’t see many people complaining about it.
Ok, but sweet tea? How do we feel about it?
Personally tea of any kind of makes me gag. I know that is horrible and a little weird, but no matter how many times I try to force myself to drink it, and try to like it, I just can’t.
Same with coffee. Well, coffee does not make me gag, I just do not like it. It’s probably because I have only ever tried it black, very BLACK. It’s the way my dad drinks it, so that’s just what I went for.
I am thinking of trying ice coffee this summer though. I think I could really benefit from some caffeine these days.
Anyway, using sweet tea for brining chicken, that is one way I can handle tea.
And kind of fun too. I just like telling people, “oh, it’s Sweet Tea Oven-Fried Chicken”. It just sounds good… or at least I think it does.
Sooo, these sliders kind of have a lot going on, and yeah, they are a tad high maintenance for a slider.
BUT they are worth it. You can make things easier on yourself by prepping pretty much everything in advance if you wish. Perfect for Memorial Day which is somehow only a week from today.
Memorial Day already? How is that even possible? Asher only has nine days left of school and then it is summer vacay for her. I have to say, I am pretty jealous of all the kids in school that are now heading into summer. That whole mindset of summer – no school, no homework, no set plans and nothing but time, swimming and warm summer nights sounds pretty incredible.
Sometimes I feel like I skipped a little too fast into adulthood, but then not really because I am so happy with where I am at. I wouldn’t do anything differently.
Well, that and I can’t actually sit without doing something for more than like fifteen minutes.
After fifteen minutes I start to get bored and have to come up with something productive to do. So while the thought of being bored and without a care in the world sounds kind of nice, in reality I could never actually do it.
What I can do is pile a lot of things on a slider.
Actually, I did have slider size buns, but by the time I piled on all the topping these things were kind of huge. In a good way, of course.
Really though, you have to make these sometime this late spring/summer. They are just the perfect warm weather, feel good kind of food.

Told you, a little big for sliders, but SO GOOD!
entire family loved it!!
Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try, I am thrilled that it worked out for you! Happy Holidays! xTieghan
Someone from Southamerica here! I just would like to know if the sweet tea could be made by hand with only with black tea and sugar (Is there a kind that is sold there that I can find here?). Would that work? Thank you so much for your amazing recipes. I’m trying as many as I can. Ka
Yes, that would work! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
I’d love to add some cheese to this, what would you recommend?
Also, what do you think about possibly using a bit of the sweet tea to caramelize the onions instead of frying them? That way it’d be a bit healthier.
I think the sweet tea in the onions would be amazing! I would go for a good cheddar or smoked gouda. Hope you love this!
I cant wait to try these and sneak one by my fiance lol he dont like tea or coffee either! they look so good.
LOL! Thanks so much, Amanda!
