For the Chicken:

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Bang Bang Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

For the Sliders:

  • 12 mini slider buns
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup pickles (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)

Instructions

1. Marinate the Chicken

  1. Prepare the Chicken: Start by cutting the chicken breasts into small, bite-sized pieces suitable for sliders.
  2. Marinate: In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and ensure they are fully submerged in the buttermilk mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (up to overnight) to tenderize and flavor the chicken.

2. Prepare the Bang Bang Sauce

  1. Mix Ingredients: In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, sriracha sauce, honey, lime juice, and garlic powder. Mix until smooth.
  2. Adjust Seasoning: Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary, adding more sriracha for extra heat or more honey for sweetness. Set aside.

3. Fry the Chicken

  1. Coating Setup: In a shallow dish, combine the flour and panko breadcrumbs.
  2. Coat the Chicken: Remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk marinade, allowing the excess to drip off. Dredge each piece in the flour mixture, ensuring an even coating.
  3. Heat the Oil: In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C). To test if the oil is ready, drop a small piece of chicken into it; it should sizzle immediately.
  4. Fry the Chicken: Fry the chicken pieces in batches, avoiding overcrowding the skillet. Cook each batch for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

4. Assemble the Sliders

  1. Prepare the Buns: Lightly toast the slider buns on a griddle or in a toaster until golden brown.
  2. Layer the Ingredients: Spread a generous amount of Bang Bang sauce on the bottom half of each bun. Place a few pieces of fried chicken on top.
  3. Add Toppings: Top the chicken with shredded lettuce, a few slices of red onion, and pickles if desired.
  4. Garnish: Add fresh cilantro for a burst of freshness and extra flavor. Place the top half of the bun on the slider.

5. Serve

  1. Plating: Arrange the sliders on a serving platter. Serve with extra Bang Bang sauce on the side for dipping.
  2. Enjoy: These Bang Bang Chicken Sliders are best enjoyed fresh and hot. They make a fantastic appetizer or main course for any gathering.

Tips and Variations

  • Baked Version: For a healthier version, bake the coated chicken pieces on a baking sheet at 400°F (200°C) for 20-25 minutes or until golden and cooked through, flipping halfway.
  • Grilled Chicken: Marinate the chicken as directed, then grill instead of frying for a smoky flavor.
  • Spice Level: Adjust the amount of sriracha in the Bang Bang sauce to control the heat level. Add more for spicier sliders or reduce for milder ones.
  • Sauce Variations: Try adding a teaspoon of Dijon mustard to the Bang Bang sauce for an extra tangy twist.
  • Vegetarian Option: Substitute the chicken with crispy fried tofu or cauliflower for a vegetarian version.

Sure, let's dive into a delicious and detailed recipe for Bang Bang Chicken Sliders! This recipe combines the spicy, tangy, and creamy flavors of Bang Bang sauce with tender, juicy chicken served on mini slider buns. Perfect for parties, game days, or a fun family dinner.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds thin sliced chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt, Fresh black pepper and garlic powder for seasoning the chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups (or more as needed) Panko bread crumbs
  • Vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • 12 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 12 slider rolls
  • Bang Bang Sauce

Instructions

  1. Start by seasoning the chicken on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Set up a breading station with the flour and cornstarch mixed together in one bowl, the buttermilk and hot sauce and egg in another bowl and the bread crumbs in a third bowl.
  2. Dredge the seasoned chicken into the flour mixture first, tapping off any excess, then into the buttermilk mixture, letting any excess liquid drip off, and then finally into the bread crumbs. Press the breadcrumbs into the chicken get a nice coating. Place the breaded chicken on a plate and repeat with the remaining chicken breast.
  3. Once you have the chicken breaded, add a thin layer of oil to a skillet and heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded chicken cutlets without over crowding the skillet. It will take 2 to 3 batches depending on the size of your skillet, adding more oil as needed. Place the fried chicken cutlets on a paper towel lined board or plate while you fry the rest of the cutlets.
  4. Once the chicken is fried, whisk together the bang bang sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Assemble the sliders by cutting the cutlets into smaller pieces and placing them onto the slider buns. Top with a slice of mozzarella cheese while the cutlets are still warm and then drizzle with bang bang sauce and serve.

Notes

If you are making these sliders ahead of time, you can keep the chicken cutlets warm in a 325 degree oven for an hour or so before serving, or you can reheat them from the refrigerator this way too.

We like to have the Bang Bang Sauce at room temperature so that it doesn’t cool down the sliders too much so if you make it ahead of time, take it out of the refrigerator bout 30 minutes before serving.
