Make them yourself, and you’ll see why we enjoy this recipe so much.
- 3 lbs boneless chicken thighs
- 12 mini buns
- 12 slices of mozzarella cheese
- Two green onions
- 3 tbsp Olive oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup Sriracha
- 1/2 cup Ketchup
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 3 tbsp lime juice
- 2 tsp lime zest
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- Red pepper flakes
This recipe may be more demanding than the rest on the list. But, if you wish to make the best gourmet chicken sandwich sliders, this is what you’ll have to do.
Put the chicken thighs in one tablespoon of olive oil and leave it in a dutch oven for five minutes on medium heat.
It’s time to make the sauce. Put together Sriracha, ketchup, 1/2 cup honey, lime juice and zest, ginger, pepper, garlic, and water. Mix it all, pour over the browned chicken, and bring to a boil.
Then, reduce the heat and let everything simmer for the next 25 minutes. Once the chicken is tender, remove it from the heat, and put the sauce back on the stove.
Cook the liquid for another 5 minutes, or until it’s thick.
Use two forks to shred the chicken. Then, toss it with reduced sauce.
It’s time to put everything together.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the bottom part of the bun into a greased baking dish. Cut the cheese slices in half and put one piece on each bottom bun.
Put a spoonful of the chicken sandwich fillings onto every slice, and top with the remaining cheese. And, don’t forget to put the top bun in its place to finish the composition.
Use the remaining olive oil to create a honey and pepper flakes mixture. Then, brush the top buns. Salt the sandwiches if you prefer.
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. You’ll be able to tell your meal is finished once the top buns are golden brown and the cheese has melted.
If you enjoy decorating the plate, garnish the sandwiches with green onions.
Make the Sriracha-lime dipping sauce.
