A recipe for chicken sliders made with ground chicken, Buffalo sauce, crumbly blue cheese, plenty of seasonings and Serrano peppers for an extra spicy kick. Perfect for any party!
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.
Form the meat mixture into 8 2-ounce slider patties roughly the width of your buns. They will shrink a bit when cooked.
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.
Serve the sliders on toasted buns with leafy lettuce and extra blue cheese crumbles. Top with extra Buffalo sauce.
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.
