Baja Chicken Sliders

This is a really delicious recipe - yummy little chicken sliders, topped with a flavorful southwestern version of coleslaw (I don't like coleslaw, but I love this!) and a zesty sour cream lime sauce.


Recipe adapted from this book.

{sour cream lime sauce}
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp lime zest
1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
4 tsp fresh lime juice
2 cup broccoli slaw mix
1/2 sweet red pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
4 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped
2 tsp sugar
2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into 16 slider-size pieces
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
16 hawaiian rolls, sliced down the middle
16 small tomato slices (optional)
16 small lettuce leaves (optional)

1. To make sour cream lime sauce, combine sour cream, lime juice, and lime zest in a small bowl. Refrigerate.
2. To make slaw mix, combine all slaw ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and refrigerate.
3. Flatten chicken breast pieces to be 1/2-inch thick. Season with cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Grill for 4-7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
4. To assemble sliders, serve chicken on hawaiian rolls and top with lettuce, tomato, sauce, and slaw.
