Chicken finger sliders recipe
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 4 dashes smoked paprika
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 6 small rolls
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 6 slices tomato
- 1-1/2 cups shredded lettuce
- Cut the chicken breasts in half width-wise and cut into 1-inch wide strips.
- Coat all sides of the chicken with the salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
- Add the flour to a medium-size bowl and add the pieces of chicken. Coat the chicken with the flour on all sides. Set aside for a moment.
- In a medium-size skillet heat the oil on low to medium heat.
- Sprinkle a small amount of flour in the oil and when it bubbles lay each piece of chicken in the pan. Try to keep space between each piece of chicken.
- Turn the chicken over as it turns a golden color.
- Once all sides are a golden color (about 7 minutes), remove the chicken from the pan and lay each piece on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
- Cut the rolls in half and spread the mayonnaise on the inside of each piece.
- Lay the chicken fingers on the bottom side of the roll and top with a slice of tomato and shredded lettuce.
- Add the top side of the bun and serve while the chicken is still warm.
