A bottle of Frank’s Buffalo wings sauce from my pantry was calling my name. So I made these slicers with a blue cheese sauce. This sauce is a bit lighter because I used Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Perfect to share, or not!
This recipe makes 12 sliders.
For the patties:
450gr of minced chicken
1/3 of a teaspoon of garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
Pinch of celery salt
1 cup f panko
¾ cup of breadcrumbs
1 egg yolk
For the buffalo sauce:
1 bottle of Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce
1 tablespoon of honey
For the gorgonzola – Greek yogurt sauce:
100grs of gorgonzola, crumbled
Juice of half a lime
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1 cup of Greek yogurt
¼ of a cup of buttermilk
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Celery salt to taste
Vegetable oil for frying the patties
12 mini buns
Lamb’s lettuce or any other lettuce of your choice
A simple vinaigrette (optional)
To make the Greek yogurt – gorgonzola sauce, whisk the lime juice, sour cream, Greek yogurt and buttermilk in a medium bowl. Then add the gorgonzola, and blend it slightly with an immersion blender. This is just to get rid of big chunks of cheese. Add salt, celery salt and pepper to taste. Keep it in the fridge until ready to serve.
To make the patties, just mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Then grab about ¼ of a cup of the chicken mixture and form it into patties.
Pour about 1/3 of a cup of vegetable oil into a large pan, over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, start frying the patties until browned on both sides and cooked through. This will take about 3 minutes per side.
In a medium saucepan, add the buffalo sauce and honey. Mix it well over medium heat. Once the patties are cooked, coat them in this sauce.
I like to serve them with some lamb’s lettuce tossed in a simple vinaigrette, a bit of the gorgonzola sauce on top and some celery sticks on the side.
