Chipotle Chicken Nugget and Honey Dijon Sliders

You know it’s going to taste good when each ingredient tastes scrumptious on its own.

Chipotle Chicken Sliders

There’s just something about sliders served on super soft rolls that makes them taste really really good.

One of the softest rolls that comes to my mind are Kings Hawaiian rolls.

They’re so soft that you have to be careful not to squeeze too hard when taking them out of the package so they’ll keep their shape.  And they even have a wheat version of these delicious rolls.

The chicken nugget in the middle of these sliders is made with a layer of Chipotle chile seasoning and coated with a layer of flour just before the nuggets are lightly fried.

They taste wonderful on their own, but no snacking until after the delectable chicken nuggets are made into sliders because they taste amazing with the honey Dijon sauce.

And have you ever tried chicken nuggets dipped in a honey Dijon sauce?  It’s soooo good.

This chipotle chicken nugget slider is served “sideways”,  more like a mini hot dog bun style slider.  The slider roll is only cut on one side so that when serving the slider cut-side up, the honey Dijon sauce stays inside of the slider.

Here are three of my favorite go-to chicken-fried recipes you may like “Simple Fried Chicken“, “Chicken Fried Pork Medallions” and “Fried Chicken and Bacon Gravy Sliders“.

Let’s check out the ingredients for these Chipotle chicken nugget sliders.
