Black’nd Blue Buffalo Chicken Sliders
I found the original recipe in this week’s (1/31/13) Publix weekly advertisement, but I made a few changes.
I couldn’t find the recipe online, but I wanted to include the original so you could see what I changed.
Black’nd Blue Buffalo Chicken Sliders as originally printed.
- 6 Publix Deli Chilled Chicken Tenders
- 1/4 cup Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Wing Sauce
- 1 cup Naturally Fresh Blue Cheese Dressing
- 2 Tbsp. Kraft Light mayonnaise
- 2 tsp. Chef Paul Meat Magic Seasoning
- 12 Publix Bakery Dinner Rolls (sliced for buns)
Directions. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut each chicken tender in half; bake 10-12 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Toss hot chicken with wing sauce. Combine salad dressing, mayonnaise, and seasoning. Place in bun: chicken and blue cheese sauce. Serve.
Take a look at my version of the recipe below and you will see that we made our own wing sauce, our own blackening seasoning and made it with less heat because we have young children (and I don’t care for super-hot). Feel free to make it your own, like we did.
- 6 Chicken Tenders, breaded and cooked, cut in half
- 1/4 Cup Hot Sauce, we used Frank's
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 1 Cup Blue Cheese Dressing
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons blackening seasoning (recipe in post)
- 12 Bakery Dinner Rolls (sliced for buns)
- Warm the chicken tenders, either in the oven for a few minutes or in the microwave, until heated through.
- Melt butter in microwave and add hot sauce, combine.
- Toss hot sauce/butter mixture with chicken tenders until coated.
- In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, blue cheese dressing and seasoning.
- Place chicken tenders on rolls and top with dressing mixture. Serve
- 1 Tbsp. Paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne
- 3/4 tsp white pepper
- 3/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp oregano
Combine and store mixture, you will use 2 teaspoons of the seasoning in the recipe above. Most blackening recipes call for salt and fennel, but we normally don’t use either one of those in our cooking. Like I said before, we turned down the heat but you can most certainly increase the cayenne to suit your tastes.
This was the first time we attempted to make this recipe and I was pleasantly surprised. This would make a great Super Bowl party snack. It’s a good thing we have leftovers and can make some more tomorrow! Enjoy
