One of my favorite things to cook on the grill is chicken. Lately we’ve been loving these Grilled Chicken Sliders. Even though they are simple to make, they are packed full of flavor.
Hi! Susanne from New South Charm back again this month with a great, easy recipe to help you get dinner on the table.
To make these sliders you will need thinly sliced chicken breast. I buy boneless, skinless thinly sliced breast.Then simply cut them in half so they are the right size of the bun. Remember you want pieces a little big because they will be smaller when you take them off the grill.
Begin by cooking up several slices of bacon or turkey bacon. How much bacon you cook is really up to you. For eight sliders I use a pound of bacon. That’s about two or three slices per sandwich.
If you aren’t able to find the thinly sliced breasts you can simply cut a regular boneless breast in half and then pound it with a rolling pin until you get your desired thickness. This is also great for stress relief.
Once the chicken is the right size sprinkle on some cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Then pop them on the grill. Cook the chicken until it is no longer translucent on either side and cooked through.
Before removing chicken from heat top off the chicken with Pepper Jack cheese. When cheese is melted a gooey remove from grill.
Stack the chicken on bottom bun, top with bacon. Smear your favorite barbecue sauce on the top bun. Enjoy!
