Ingredients

For the Asian Chicken Sliders:

  • 1 pound ground chicken, or ground white meat turkey
  • 1/2 cup jasmine rice, cooked
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons Bertolli® 100% Pure Olive Oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 12 small yeast buns, dinner rolls
  • 1/2 cup wasabi mayonnaise (1/2 cup mayo + 1 teaspoon wasabi paste)

 For the Asian Slaw:

  • 2 cups shredded napa cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 1/2 ripe mango, cut julienne
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to medium heat, approximately 350 degrees F. Place the ground chicken, jasmine rice, panko, green onions, jalapeno, and ginger in a large bowl. Crack the egg into the bowl and add 1 tablespoon Bertolli® 100% Pure Olive Oil, and soy sauce. Mix the ingredients by hand until well combined.
  • Scoop 3 tablespoon portions of chicken mixture and roll into tight balls. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Press the balls flat with the back of a spatula, to 1/2 inch thick. Brush the tops with olive oil.
  • Cut the rolls in half and brush the insides with Bertolli® 100% Pure Olive Oil.

For the Asian Slaw:

  • Mix the napa cabbage, carrots, mung bean sprouts, mango and cilantro in a medium bowl. Drizzle with rice vinegar and Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Toss to coat, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Grill the buns for 1 minute. Remove from the grill. Then place the chicken patties on the grill top-side-down and grill for 2 minutes. Brush the tops of the patties with oil. Flip, and grill another 2-3 minutes.

To Assemble:

  • Smear the buns with wasabi mayo. Then add the chicken patties, and top with Asian slaw. Place the bun topper on the slaw and serve!

Notes

Make four full-sized servings on standard buns.
