  • 1 bottle green chile sauce
  • Four 4-inch slices of Havarti or Jack cheese

  • ½ cup coleslaw mix
  • 8-ounce can crush pineapple packed in juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 slider buns sliced in half horizontally

  • Place chicken in a bowl or zipper storage bag. Pour 1 cup of green chile sauce over, coating chicken thoroughly. Marinate for at least one hour.
  • Place red cabbage and coleslaw mix in a bowl (or if travel tailgating in a zipper storage bag). Drain juice from pineapple (about 1/4 cup) into a small bowl or a plastic party cup if travel tailgating! Mix with 1 tablespoon of green chile sauce. and 1 teaspoon honey.
  • Whisk (for travel, use a plastic fork). Drizzle in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Whisk again. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle dressing on cabbage mix. Stir in reserved pineapple. Pour 2 tablespoons of sauce in a small bowl or plastic party cup.
  • Heat FIREDISC® to medium-high. Place chicken thighs and grill for 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken easily releases. Baste once or twice with sauce. Turn over, grill for another 2 to 3 minutes. Place ½ slice of cheese on top of each chicken thigh. Let cheese melt for 2 minutes. Check chicken for doneness. Chicken is properly cooked when the interior temperature of the thigh is 165 degrees.
  • Remove thighs from FIREDISC® to a clean plate. Place 2 tablespoons of slaw on the bottom of each slider bun. Top with chicken and a small drizzle of sauce. Enjoy!
