"I'm in heaven. These are SO, SO, SO, SO good! Made them exactly as described, grilled them on my stovetop grill...but didn't use lettuce and tomato because the extremely yummy and refreshing slaw was enough. This goes in my Keeper file for sure. Thank you Janet Hynes! This recipe hit the spot!"

"These are awesome. I have made them twice now; I used regular hamburger buns the first time and the Hawaiian hamburger buns the second time. Both were great. Love the flavor of the slaw, lime sour cream and chicken altogether. Even my picky eater loved them."

"I made these the lazy way: frozen breaded chicken patties and pre-made coleslaw. I sprinkled the cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper on the chicken patties after I heated them in the oven. Topped it with lettuce, tomato, and put it on a Hawaiian bun. Delicious! Next time I'll follow the recipe to see how it turns out."

"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!"
