It’s WELL into football season now, how’s your tailgating game going? We grill ALLLLL year long, and my husband is a little hard-core. Over football, and the foodball game. And I’m okay with that! It makes Sundays (and Mondays, and Thursdays) way easier for me when he’s got some home-gating ideas and plans.

This chicken was marinated in Stubb’s chicken marinade for about an hour before we threw it on the grill. Any of your favorite marinades will do though!

Once it came off the grill we let it cool, and then took the meat off the bones and made some killer bbq chicken sliders. I love leg meat for this because its so tender and juicy compared to white meat.

I sandwiched these in between some awesome pretzel rolls. I love the texture of those rolls paired with the tender meat and coleslaw.
