Ingredients

For the Honey Dijon Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon honey

For the Chipotle Chicken Nugget Sliders:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut each chicken breasts into 4 equally sized pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Chipotle chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 8 Hawaiian Wheat Bread Rolls
  • Honey Dijon sauce
  • Fresh chives cut into 2 inch long pieces

Instructions

For the Honey Dijon Sauce:

  • In a small bowl, add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and honey.  Whisk together and set aside.

For the Chipotle Chicken Nugget Sliders:

  • For the Chicken - To a medium size bowl, add the pieces of chicken, Chipotle powder, pepper, and salt. Coat the pieces of chicken with the spices on all sides. 
  • In a separate bowl, add flour.  Lay each piece of seasoned chicken in the flour and coat all sides with the flour.  Set aside for a moment.
  • In a medium size skillet add the canola oil and heat on medium heat. Add a pinch of flour to the oil and when it bubbles then add the pieces of chicken to the pan. 
  • When the bottom side of the chicken turns a golden color (about 3 or 4 minutes) turn the chicken over. 
  • Continue to turn the chicken as it cooks until all sides of the chicken are a golden color and are cooked through (about 4 or 5 more minutes). If the chicken is browning too quickly turn the heat down just a bit.
  • Transfer the chicken from the pan on to a small rack to drain the excess oil. 
  • For the Sliders - Partially cut the rolls in half from side to side leaving a small section uncut so it resembles a hot dog bun. 
  • Drizzle the honey Dijon sauce inside each roll. Then add a fried chicken nugget to each bun, and drizzle more honey Dijon sauce on top of the chicken. 
  • Garnish with the chives and serve warm with the uncut side of the roll facing down (like a mini hot dog).
