Chicken Apple Sliders
Brighten up your week with these chicken apple sliders. They are juicy, tender, and loaded with flavor. Topped with caramelized onions, tart green apple and melty cheddar cheese, this chicken slider recipe is the perfect way to kickoff spring.
Prepare the caramelized onions:
Over medium heat add butter and sliced onion to an 11-inch non-stick skillet.
Once the onions are translucent and begin to brown, add the red wine and a pinch of salt. Stir well and simmer over medium low heat until they are dark brown in color and well caramelized. Not burnt. Set aside.
Prepare the chicken sliders:
Peel a green apple and grate it into small pieces. Using a paper towel or cheese cloth, squeeze out all excess moisture. Set the pressed apple aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, panko breadcrumbs, grated parmesan cheese, 1 large egg, 2% milk, spices, and the pressed green apples. Mix well and form sliders.
I was able to get 12 slider patties from my mixture. This will vary depending on size.
Grab an 11-inch skillet and add the vegetable oil.
Once the oil is hot, but not smoking, you can begin to sear the sliders on the outside. Place the browed sliders on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
Once all of the sliders are golden brown, add them to the prepared baking dish.
Top them with cheddar cheese and cover with foil.
Cook the sliders for 20 minutes or until they reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking time will vary based on the size of your sliders.
Prepare the buns:
While the sliders are cooking in the oven, heat a large skillet over medium / low heat.
Smear the butter on the inside of the potato rolls.
Place the rolls butter side down on the pan allowing them to get golden-brown and toasted.
Once they have a golden-brown color, remove them from the pan and set them aside.
