Food Fashion and Flow: Teriyaki Chicken Sliders

Teriyaki Chicken Sliders


 Sliders are all the rage these days and rightfully so. They are small and pack a lot of punch. These are perfect appetizers or a great meal when served with delicious sides and a nice icy drink:-) These are great when entertaining too. Just put on a nice platter and pass around to your guests. These Teriyaki sliders have a hint of sweetness and if you cook them on the grill, a hint of smokiness.

I have tried these sliders with lettuce and tomato, and I have experimented by putting a cabbage slaw on them.  They are absolutely delicious either way. I really love sliders and who can resist something so tiny and cute? 




Ingredients 

4 medium chicken breasts 
1 bottle Teriyaki marinade
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
fresh pineapple chunks or rings
Cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup canola oil
Green leaf lettuce washed and dryed
Red Onion
Kings Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

Pound chicken breasts until 1/2 inch thick. Cut Chicken breasts in half. Combine Teriyaki sauce, honey and red pepper flakes. Reserve 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup. Place the rest of the mixture in a bowl or resealable bag. Marinate chicken for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to 350 degrees. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard marinade. Brush grill with oil and place the chicken directly on grill and cook 5-8 minutes on each side or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165. Remove from grill and brush with reserved sauce.

To build your slider, simply add sliced red onion, leaf lettuce and tomato and garnish with pineapple.

 The sliders have a great flavor when cooked on the grill. That hint of smokiness and the sweet sauce are a great combo. It is delicious cooked in the oven too, but will not have that smoky element you can only get from cooking on an open flame on the grill.


Bon Appetit!
