You won't find a more flavorful slider out there! The combination of the citrus and chicken is great. The sweet bun really helps bring this recipe over the top. I usually like to tweak a recipe but this is one that I go with as it. It is so YUMMY!

What a great, easy recipe!!! I made the slaw creamy by adding mayo so I didn't make the sour cream sauce. The kick from the jalapeño was perfect!

Very, very good! Can not wait to make it again next week! The best tasting chicken sandwich I've ever tried. I chose to eliminate the sour cream dressing, and used cabbage slaw vs. broccoli & added a little mayonnaise to make it creamy. I had extra time, so I marinaded the chicken breast in a bag with the spices and added about 2 T. of minced red bell pepper, sweet onion and jalapeno pepper (each) w/lime juice- for about an hour. We used potatoe rolls I had on hand. Excellent!

Made about 40 of these tasty sandwiches for a church picnic. They looked so fresh and healthy on the food table! Very yummy.
