Buffalo Blue Cheese Chicken Sliders


We’re taking several traditional chicken wing flavors and incorporating them into a slider that will definitely satisfy your bar food cravings.

YIELD 8 sliders
PREP TIME 10 minutes
COOK TIME 15 minutes

1 pound ground chicken
4 serranos, minced
½ cup crumbled blue cheese plus more for garnish
¼ cup Buffalo Sauce plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for frying
3 tablespoons breadcrumbs plus more if needed
8 slider buns, lightly toasted
Leafy lettuce for serving

1. Add the chicken, serranos, blue cheese, buffalo sauce, paprika, garlic, oil and breadcrumbs to a mixing bowl. Hand-mix, but don’t overmix. If the mixture doesn’t stick together enough, add more breadcrumbs.
2. Form the mixture into 8 patties roughly the width of your buns. They will shrink a bit when cooked.
3. Warm some olive oil in a grill pan over medium and cook the sliders, about 3–4 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
4. Serve the sliders on toasted buns with lettuce, topped with buffalo sauce and extra blue cheese crumbles.
