Cheese Puff Chicken Sliders
  • 6 chicken breasts (boneless skinless)
  • 1-2 cups flour
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 cups crunchy cheese puffs (crushed)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup asiago cheese (grated)
  • Jalapeno Aioli
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 jalapeno (chopped)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • Brussels Sprout Slaw
  • 8 ounces Brussels sprouts (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 bunch parsley (leaves, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons chives (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapenos (chopped)
  • 6 slider-sized potato buns
  • 6 pieces Canadian bacon
  • 1 bunch cilantro (stems removed)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • In three separate dishes, separate the flour, eggs and cheese puffs. Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour, then in the eggs, then in the crushed cheese puffs.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and butter. Once melted, add the chicken, making sure not to crowd the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Top chicken with Asiago cheese.
  • For the Jalapeno Aioli: in a food processor. add the yolks, jalapenos, lime juice, mustard, garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse to combine. Starting with a few drops at a time, slowly add the oil in a steady stream, with the food processor running. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
  • For the Slaw: In a large bowl, add the Brussels sprouts, onion, parsley, chives, lime juice, jalapenos, salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine.
  • Meanwhile, preheat a griddle or skillet and add some butter. Toast the buns and sear the Canadian bacon until charred on both sides.
  • To assemble, top the bottom bun with a piece of Canadian bacon, a drizzle of aioli, a piece of chicken, some slaw and a pinch of cilantro. Top with bun and serve.
