043 - Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Pesto Chicken Sliders

Roasted brussels sprouts marinated in oil and balsamic vinegar baked at 350F is pretty standard fare.

The pesto chicken sliders, however, were pretty awesome. You take pizza dough (we had some from Trader Joe's) and make little slider buns. To do that you roll out an 1/8 of the dough into a 7" - 8" strip, then tie it in a knot. Bake all of these together and then cut them half. Fill it up with some rotisserie chicken from the grocery store (we got ours at Costco), cover it with pesto and mozzarella cheese, and throw it back in the oven for another 15 minutes or so at 400F. Oh, and don't forget the melted butter and black pepper to slather the top.

It's no wrestling game work, but it's still something that took time to prepare and do.
