BBQ Chicken Sliders

The creation of “barbecue” is owed to a need to turn lower quality cuts of meat into flavorful, mouthwatering meals. And just like the eternal debate over which regional style is tastiest, people can’t seem to decide on where the word “barbecue” originated. The most commonly accepted answer says it comes from the West Indian word “barbacoa,” which translates to “slow cooking over hot coals.”

No matter how you think the word came to be, you’ll be sure to love this quick and easy dinner solution – no coals necessary!


  • 1/2 cup sugar free or low sugar BBQ sauce – DL Hughes sugar free is available almost everywhere including Walmart
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain or Creole mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Tony Chatcheres Creole or Cajun seasoning
  • 1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • Four large romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup Bolthouse Farms Honey Mustard Yogurt Dressing


  1. Blend barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, mustard, Creole seasoning, and 1/2 cup water in skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and allow it to warm and melt into the sauce as it cooks. This will give it a finer texture. Simmer until water has reduced and sauce has thickened.
  2. Fill each romaine leaf with chicken and drizzle with the prepared dressing.
