Bar Chicks - Blackened Chicken Sliders

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"I liked these that a local restaurant chain made so much, I came up with my own take on this. Blackened chicken with a chipotle aioli and caramelized onion just complement each other well. These are good mini-sized or meal-sized. It's easy to prep ingredients ahead of time and just cook the chicken when you are ready. For large sandwiches, cut each chicken breast into 2 pieces."

  1. Mix white wine, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and Worcestershire sauce together in a resealable bag; add chicken and seal bag. Marinate chicken in the refrigerator for 8 to 24 hours.
  2. Mix 1 tablespoon salt, onion powder, sugar, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, white pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and oregano together in a bowl for the blackened seasoning; transfer to a shaker or an air-tight container.
  3. Place mayonnaise, chives, garlic, 1 teaspoon lime juice, ground chipotle pepper, salt, and black pepper in a food processor; pulse together until chives are minced and aioli is smooth and evenly mixed. Transfer to an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter together in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until onion is very tender and dark brown, about 30 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Spray chicken pieces with cooking spray and sprinkle all sides with blackened seasoning.
  6. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet; cook chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side.
  7. Assemble sliders by layering a piece of chicken, a strip of Cheddar cheese, and a spoonful of caramelized onion onto the bottom of each bun. Place a dollop of aioli on the top portion of bun before placing atop onion layer, forming a sandwich.

I may be biased as this was my recipe, but I love it. Yes, it can be a very spicy seasoning rub, but you can put as little or as much as youd like or use something different to suit your tastes ...

This was a great starting point for a fabulous recipe! We used lemon instead of lime juice in the marinade, only 1 cup of white wine (per other reviews) and probably marinated it for only 6 hou...

The chicken is very tasty. The overall taste is interesting (unusual and good). But 5 stars? No. This isn't the sort of thing you make when your mother-in-law visits so that you can secretly s...

Delicious chicken sliders! Messy but yummy! They had a great flavor although, not for the faint of heart when it comes to spice. One cup of white wine would have been plenty for the marinade....

These were excellent! I didn't change anything about the recipe as it was well written and very clear other than I used a smokey sharp cheese and mini ciabatta rolls that I brushed with olive oi...

The first time I made these I thought they were delicious, but my husnamd didn't care for them. This inspired me for a great sandwich the second time around, and it cut the prep time down to pra...

I thought this was a cool idea! I used chicken tenders and made mini sliders. To get the best flavor out of the onions, you need to caramelize them slowly and until they're a rich brown. The chi...
