When you’re parked in front of the TV for long periods of time, rooting for your favorite team, it’s all about finger food. That’s why the chicken nugget comes in particularly handy–literally. Sure you can pick them up and toss ‘em back on their own, but why not go for the slam-dunk? With these fab five chicken slider recipes on hand you’d be mad not to give ’em a shot.

Clubhouse Chicken Slider: Place a chicken nugget on a toasted slider roll, then top with crisp bacon, a slice of Swiss cheese, sliced roma tomatoes and iceberg lettuce. Dress with mustard and mayo.

Nacho Slider: Melt cheddar cheese on both sides of a slider bun. Fill with a FreeBird chicken nugget topped with guacamole, salsa and nacho rings.
