Valentine Bread / BBQPulled Chicken Thigh Sliders

Valentine Bread

10 oz. frozen sweetened strawberries
2 eggs
3/4 c. oil
1-1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Thaw strawberries but don't drain. Puree
berries with eggs and oil. Sift dry ingredients into bowl. Stir in
strawberry mixture and nuts. Blend well. Pour into lightly greased 9x5
inch loaf pan. Bake for 70 minutes or until tester comes out clear. Let
cool in pan.




6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups smoky barbecue sauce (love Sweet Baby Rays)
12 to 16 mini rolls
12 to 16 mini dill pickles

In a large high-sided pot, add the chicken, salt and
broth. Cover and bring to a boil, and reduce the heat
and simmer until done, about 20 minutes. Remove from
heat and allow to cool enough to handle. With two forks,
shred the chicken right in the pot, by pulling the pieces
apart. Add the barbecue sauce, reheat the mixture and
reduce the liquid if needed, or add some additional
chicken broth if too dry. Split the rolls and mound
about 1 tablespoon of the chicken on each bottom half;
top with the remaining half. Using a toothpick, secure
a pickle on top and serve warm.

Yield: 8 Servings
