  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 4 serrano peppers minced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese + more for topping
  • 1/4 cup Buffalo Sauce + more for serving
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil + more for the pan
  • 3 tbsp bread crumbs or more if needed
  • 8 slider buns lightly toasted
  • 1 Leafy lettuce for serving


  1. To a mixing bowl, add ground chicken with serrano peppers, ½ cup blue cheese, ¼ cup Buffalo sauce, paprika, garlic powder, olive oil and 3 tablespoons bread crumbs. Hand mix, but do not overmix or the sliders can become mealy. If the meat mixture doesn’t stick together enough, add a bit more bread crumbs.

  2. Form the meat mixture into 8 2-ounce slider patties roughly the width of your buns. They will shrink a bit when cooked.

  3. Heat olive oil on a large grill pan to medium heat and cook the sliders about 3-4 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through.

  4. Serve the sliders on toasted buns with leafy lettuce and extra blue cheese crumbles. Top with extra Buffalo sauce.

Recipe Notes

Heat Factor: Medium-Hot

You can lower the heat by choosing milder peppers, such as jalapeno peppers, or reducing the number of spicy serranos, which have a nice heat level. Make them hotter with a spicy hot sauce, hot pepper flakes, or hotter peppers.
