Make these fun Halloween Appetizer Monster Sliders! Mini Sliders with seasoned chicken thighs, guacamole, and fun spooky monster eyes!
Halloween is my favorite time of year to have fun with family decorating and of course, watching scary movies, but my favorite part of all is spooky eats! Now that my daughter is older we have so much fun making tasty recipes together and our Halloween Appetizer Monster Sliders are fun for everyone!
I start off with Cooked Perfect® Fire Grilled Chicken Classic Boneless Thighs. I put them into the oven for about 18 minutes total and once they’re fully warmed up I start to assemble.
While they’re cooking in the oven I made my guacamole “vomit”. Kids can be picky with avocado if there is raw garlic and onion so to keep this kid-friendly I only use a few ingredients like granulated garlic, granulated onion, salt, fresh lime juice, and a little fresh cilantro. The chicken is so flavorful that you don’t need to go too crazy with seasoning the guacamole.
While the Cooked Perfect® Fire Grilled Chicken is warming in the oven and the guacamole is finished, I start working on the eyeballs. It’s just green olives with pimento. I stick a toothpick into it, not fully, but just enough so it can stay. I make two for each slider, eyeballs! If you’re not comfortable using a toothpick with kids you can use a piece of celery that you cut really thin or even a piece of an herb stem. For example, a piece of parsley or cilantro stem would work perfectly. Our daughter is 5 so she can easily remove the toothpick. 🙂
By the time I’m done making the guacamole and eyeballs the chicken is ready to go! I place them onto some fresh slider buns and then top with guacamole. Place the top of the bun on them and then get sticking the eyeballs in!
My family got a kick out of these fun little monster sliders. They’re really fun for the whole family and so easy to make. The tender juicy chicken thighs are perfect for these sandwiches and it pairs well with the guacamole.
If you don’t like guacamole you could even put on a slice of cheddar cheese. We just really like the color of the green avocado and of course the creaminess it gives to the slider.
I really appreciate the ease of making this recipe. I don’t have to season the chicken at all and literally just place it into the oven. It cooks up perfectly and one thing I really appreciate is it’s already fully cooked! That means even less cooking time.
