BBQ – Mini Chicken Sliders
Recipe courtesy Robert Irvine
Prep Time: 25
Prep Time: 5
Time: 6 min
Serves: 6 servings
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
1 large white onion
3 cloves whole garlic
2 teaspoons grated ginger
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
4 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
6 brioche rolls or roll of choice
8 slices havarti cheese
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 red onion, sliced into rings
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
Heat grill to medium.
Finely grind the chicken breast, onion, garlic and ginger together and place in a medium bowl. Add the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and sesame oil and mix thoroughly.
Shape this mixture into 2 by 1-inch patties and let rest in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Toast the brioche rolls, then grill the chicken patties for about 5 to 6 minutes over a medium heat. (Don’t try to cook faster over high heat as the outside will be cooked and not the inside.)
To finish, place 1 patty on the bottom of each toasted bun, top with cheese, sliced tomato, onion and iceberg lettuce and cover with the bun top.
And Of course, there are the “Make Your Own” sandwich Sliders But I’m not going to give you a recipe for this because that would just be silly.
All you do is get a tray of deli meats, some mini buns or bread and some fun garnishes like pickels, olives, tomatoes, onions and lettuce. And of course, the condiments like mayo, mustard, etc. I recommend whipping up a unique “special sauce” of your own too like a spicy honey mustard or horseradish mayo!
