Description

When the big game comes on, you’ll be ready with these flavor-packed  mini-sandwiches. Just cook some chicken, and jazz up some purchased hummus with avocado, capers and olives for a slider that keeps the party going.

Ingredients

4
chicken breast (boneless & skinless )
1/2 teaspoon
salt, coarse
1/2 teaspoon
black pepper, ground
1 teaspoon
thyme, dried
1/2 cup
hummus (prepared)
1/2
avocado
1 tablespoon
capers (drained)
2
olives, kalamata (chopped)
8
whole wheat slider buns (or whole wheat dinner rolls)
1 cup
spinach, leaves

Instructions

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a sheet pan.
Cut each chicken breast portion in half to make two even, slider-sized portions and place the chicken on the pan. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme. Roast for 20 minutes, until an instant read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a breast reads 165 degrees F and the juices run clear. Cool the chicken on a rack until cool  enough to handle.
Halve the avocado, remove the pit, and dice up one half (set aside other half for additional topping).  Scoop into a medium bowl; add hummus, capers and olives and stir.
On each bun, place a couple of spinach leaves, a piece of chicken, and top with about 3 tablespoons of the hummus mixture. Cover with the top half of the bun, using a toothpick to hold it together, if desired. Place sliders on a platter and serve.
