Serves 4 (serving size: 2 sliders)

For this slider, we tuck the usual Buffalo wing accompaniments--carrots and celery--inside the patty. This gives you all the flavors of a wing plate while also helping to keep the lean breast meat moist. When shredding the celery (so that it incorporates nicely), you'll have to stop occasionally to pull and discard the strings. Be sure to search for celery bunches with nice, fresh leaves still attached.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Place chicken in a medium bowl; add panko, carrot, celery, paprika, egg, and garlic. Mix just until combined. Divide into 8 portions; shape each into a 3-inch patty.

Step 3

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Combine hot sauce and butter in a medium bowl; add patties to bowl, turning to coat. Layer bottom half of each bun with 1 patty, about 1 teaspoon blue cheese mixture, 2 celery leaves, and top half of bun.

I'll be honest here - I'm not a huge fan of buffalo chicken wings.  Never got the attraction.  So I was somewhat hesitant to try this recipe but I'm so glad that I did.  I made regular size burgers, not slider-size.  Loved the blue cheese/mayo sauce - might whir that up in my mini food processor next time to make it smoother.  I did use a bit more panko and grilled the patties on our Traeger (10 min ea side).  I also allowed people to spoon on the hot sauce vs. coating the patty and subbed butter leaf lettuce for the celery leaves.  Will definitely be making these again.

These are fun! I followed the recipe except that I used regular white slider buns, left out the celery leaves and substituted turkey for the chicken. I'll definitely make them again, especailly because they weren't difficult to whip together.

We really enjoyed these moist and flavorful chicken sliders. We followed the other reviewer by adding more salt, Worcestershire sauce and more panko bread crumbs. We did not use a grill but instead pan seared it and loved this recipe.

These were delicious! I added 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/2 TB of Worcestershire sauce. I added another 1/4 cup of panko (approximately) because the mixture was a bit wet and I wanted to grill these outside. The additional panko firmed them up without drying them out. My family really enjoyed these sliders - even my picky eater! I will definitely make these again.

I have to give these 5 stars because my guests loved them! I served these along with several other different tapas for a wine and food pairing party. I made them exactly as the recipe read. Kids love them too!

We loved theses.  Will definitely add them to the rotation. I made normal size ...not sliders.

Easy and Delicious!

These sliders are a keeper!  I, too, added a bit more panko as I wanted to grill them.  A nice change from beef sliders.  Will be making these again!

Very good

Just echoing what others have said. Add a bit more panko (and I added more hot sauce because we really like hot sauce), and these are perfectly delicious.  Enjoyed with corn on the cob and the Mark Bittman Mustard-Ranch potato salad from another issue.
