Jimmy’s Bang Bang Chicken Sliders

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 mini pretzel buns, split
  • 12 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, halved
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Coarse salt, optional
  • SRIRACHA-LIME DIPPING SAUCE:
  • 1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, brown chicken in 1 Tbsp. olive oil, about 5 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, stir together ketchup, chili sauce, 1/2 cup honey, water, lime juice and zest, garlic, ginger and pepper. Pour over browned chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until chicken is tender, 25-30 minutes. Remove chicken and bring sauce back to a simmer; cook until thick, about 5 minutes. Shred chicken with 2 forks; toss with reduced sauce.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 375°. Place bottom buns in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Place half a slice of cheese on each of the buns; spoon chicken mixture on top of cheese. Top with remaining cheese slices and bun tops. Stir together remaining olive oil, honey and pepper flakes. Brush over bun tops. Sprinkle with the coarse salt, if desired.
  • 4. Bake until tops are golden and cheese has melted, 10-15 minutes. Garnish with green onions.
  • 5. For sauce, stir together all ingredients. Serve alongside sliders.

    A little spicy for my taste. But added sour cream to the sauce - great!

    It was delicious! Just put it on regular hamburger buns since that's what I had. Will definitely make it again.
