Chicken Club Sliders

Makes 12 sliders

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless Smart Chicken breasts

  • Canola oil, as needed

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon

  • ¼ cup mayo

  • ¼ cup ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce, such as Sriracha

  • 12 slider buns

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 12 tomato slices

  • 12 butter lettuce leaves

  • Toothpicks, as needed for serving (optional)

Directions

With a sharp knife, slice the chicken breasts on a bias to create ½-inch thick slices the size of the slider buns. Rub chicken slices with canola oil and season with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy then transfer to paper towels to drain, reserving a small amount of bacon fat in the pan.

In the same skillet used to cook the bacon, over medium-high, cook the chicken until golden-brown on each side and the internal temperature registers 165°F on a digital thermometer. Toast the buns until golden brown.

In a small bowl, mix the mayo, ketchup and chili sauce.

To assemble, top the bottom of the slider bun with chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, butter lettuce, and sauce. Insert a toothpick through each slider for easy serving.
