It's been many years since I've had a White Castle, and, I confess, quite some time since I've craved one. But I still love a flavourful bite-sized treat, and these chicken and apple sliders are a grown-up take on a snack that you can eat by the handful. So, in honour of that most decidely American annual tradition, the Super Bowl, make a dozen or three of these, adapted from another American classic, The Joy of Cooking. They may not conjure up nostalgia, but they'll be a winning addition to your Super Bowl feast.
