Ingredients

buffalo chicken sliders

  • 1 loaf of 12-count slider buns, such as brioche buns or hawaiian rolls
  • ½ cup hot sauce (like frank’s red hot or frank’s buffalo wing)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (I like to use a rotisserie chicken!)
  • 4 slices sharp cheddar cheese

gorgonzola slaw

  • 2 to 3 cups chopped/shredded green or savoy cabbage or 1 (14oz) bag coleslaw mix
  • 1 large carrot, peeled into ribbons
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 4 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese, plus extra for serving if you wish
  • 3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or avocado oil or another oil you love
  • salt and pepper

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Slice the slab of slider rolls in half horizontally, keeping them attached as much as you can. Place the bottom of the rolls on a baking sheet.
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat and place the hot sauce and butter in it. Cook just until the butter melts, stirring often. You can also do this in the microwave!
  • Place the shredded chicken in a large bowl. Toss it with almost all of the buffalo wing sauce, reserving just a bit to drizzle on top.
  • Place the sliced sharp cheddar on the bottom layer of the slider buns. Top with the shredded chicken. Drizzle on any of the extra sauce.
  • Top with the slider buns. Brush with a touch of olive oil or butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds or everything seasoning.
  • Bake the sliders for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cheese is melty. While they bake, make the gorgonzola slaw.
  • Remove the sliders. If you’re going to serve them all at once, lift the top layer of buns and pile the slaw on top to serve. If you want to save some sliders for leftovers, serve the slaw on the side and let people add it to their own sandwiches. Enjoy!

gorgonzola slaw

  • Place the shredded cabbage, cilantro and carrots in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the cheese, yogurt, lime juice and olive oil.
  • Pour it over the cabbage and toss thoroughly until everything is combined. Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and toss well. The slaw will not be super creamy and saucy - it’s very much a light coating. Serve it on the side or on top of the sliders.
