What is a Super Bowl without plenty of buffalo sauce. These little buffalo chicken sliders are the perfect size for a game day treat. Serve them alone or alongside an assortment of your other favorite snacks. A few of my other Football Sunday favorites are chili cheese fries and warm spinach and artichoke dip. What are your favorites?
Recipe yields 10-12 sliders
1 lb thin chicken breast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 tbsp hot sauce (I used Frank's)
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
12 slider rolls
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup hot sauce
Blue cheese dressing
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Set up your prep station by mixing the flour and half the spices in one bowl; the eggs and hot sauce in a second bowl; and the bread crumbs with the other half of the spices in a third bowl.
For each piece of chicken, coat with the flour mixture, then dredge in the egg mixture, and finally cover with the bread crumb mixture. Arrange on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Flip over and cook for an additional 8 minutes.
While the chicken is in the oven, prep all your toppings. Shred your lettuce and carrots and chop your celery.
Melt your butter in the microwave until completely liquid. Stir in the 1/2 cup of hot sauce.
Once your chicken is done (browned and crispy), remove from the oven. Dunk your chicken in the hot sauce mixture and shake off any excess. Arrange on your slider bun.
Add lettuce, carrots, celery and a dollop of blue cheese dressing. Top with your second bun to finish off your sandwich.
Serve alongside chips or carrot and celery sticks to stay on the healthier side. Enjoy!
