Asian chicken turned into sliders!
I’ve never met an Asian chicken dish I didn’t like. Same goes for sliders. So what happens when you mix the two? You’ll have Asian chicken sliders that are packed with so much flavor thanks to the soy sauce and garlic. These sliders have extra crunch because they are served with the best ever rainbow slaw that’s super light since it has no mayonnaise and is flavored with rice vinegar and honey. This chicken slider recipe is perfect for a party or just a simple and quick dinner because it’s so simple and easy, yet very tasty!
Can I make these sliders for a crowd?
Why yes you can! These are meant to feed a crowd. To make it easier and quicker, you can make the chicken sliders with rotisserie chicken instead of chicken breast. Just shred the rotisserie chicken and mix it with the Asian sauce – which is so easy to make – and cook it over medium heat for some minutes until the chicken is fully flavored. For maximum flavor, make these chicken sliders with slaw. You can make the slaw ahead of time and mix it with the dressing before serving.
I love how colorful this slaw is! It makes the sliders pretty and the cabbage gives such a nice crunch. The dressing is very light and adds a bit of tanginess to the slaw. A mixture of rice vinegar, water, honey and salt brings the perfect amount of sweet and salt which pairs perfectly with the chicken sliders.
How to make chicken sliders at home
Start with the chicken, I like to sear the chicken breast on both sides and then bake in the oven for twenty to twenty five minutes at 400F. You can also use rotisserie chicken and shred it to make chicken sliders. Once the chicken is cooked and cool, shred the chicken using two forks and then return it to the pan.
Make the Asian sauce by mixing soy sauce, water, corn starch, brown sugar, lime, garlic powder and Sambal oelek in a small bowl. It’s going to be watery but don’t worry. You are going to cook the chicken in this sauce for a few minutes.
Pour the sauce over the shredded chicken in the pan. Cook with the sauce for some minutes until the sauce is thickened. Make the slaw by mixing shredded carrots, cucumbers and cabbage and mixing them with rice vinegar, honey and salt. Assemble the sliders and serve.
What’s special about this Asian sliders recipe?
- It’s super simple and quick: You can do most of the work ahead of time including cooking the chicken, shredding it and making the slaw. You can also use rotisserie chicken which makes it even quicker.
- There’s so much flavor: With the addition of soy sauce, brown sugar and a rainbow slaw, these sliders are bursting with flavor. I also added some sambal oelek (ground fresh chili paste) for more flavor and we loved it, strongly recommended!
- They’re very versatile: You can serve these chicken sliders with spicy mayo (a mixture of mayo and sriracha) or leave out the Asian sauce and use teriyaki sauce instead to have chicken teriyaki sliders.
What to serve with chicken sliders?
Notes and tips to make these Asian sliders:
- If making these chicken sliders for a crowd, place the cooked or rotisserie chicken without bones in a stand mixer with flat paddle attachment and turn on medium to shred the chicken much faster.
- You can use store bought slaw for this Asian sliders recipe. If you don’t have rice vinegar at hand, use white vinegar. As white vinegar has a stronger flavor, use less white vinegar and more water to make the dressing.
- Store the remaining chicken and slaw in separate containers and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
