I’ll be upfront right now. And this may make me unpopular but for a long time I couldn’t even smell Buffalo Wing Sauce. In fact it’s been over a decade that even looking at the sauce would give me chills. Flash back 2003….my husband had just won Virginia’s Strongest Man. We actually had friends in the area so we went out and celebrated afterwards at a local wing place. Well, let’s just say that I ‘Celebrated’ a little too much **insert you shaking your head here because most of us have ‘been there’**.
So, there’s that. But I can FINALLY say that after my pregnancy with my youngest my taste buds must have been awakened because I craved spicy stuff constantly and have been on the Wing Sauce bandwagon ever since. I’m like ‘Let’s put it on everything!’ Just like I do with these Wing Sauce Sliders.
Not only have my tastes changed over the years but my entertainment habits have too. Now instead of going out and getting crazy I much prefer staying at home and spending Mitten Movie Nights making a great meal and pairing it with some great beer while watching some great entertainment. Ok, now on to the food!
First you will prepare your chicken. Cut the pieces down to size for as many sliders as you are expecting to prepare. After cutting them into as many pieces as you have buns (I had 12) pound them out with a mallet to thin them out. This helps to tenderize them and you don’t have to cook them as long so they turn out a little juicer.
Add vegetable oil to the pan. I usually use about 1/2 cup. Bring oil to a temperature that will ‘fry’ the chicken breasts. You can test by adding a little of the dredging mixture and see if it sizzles. While that is heating up put 1/2 cup flour onto a plate. Dredge the chicken so it is coated on all sides of the chicken. Test to see if oil is hot enough. If it is add chicken to pan. Cook first side around 6-8 minutes–DO NOT TOUCH IT once it’s in the oil. I’m telling you, you want the crunchy part of this chicken to stay intact because it’s delicious and you will ruin it if you mess with it. Ok, rant over :’) Flip over (again, only 1 time) and cook another 6-8 minutes. Remove from pan and let drain on paper towel.
While your chicken is cooking make up the sauces to go with these. First off let’s start with the Garlic Parmesan Sauce. Mix all the ingredients together in a covered bowl. Once the chicken is cooked take the amount of you want to have the Garlic Parmesan sauce on it and add to bowl with the combined sauce. Cover & shake. Go ahead and get your arm workout for the day.
For the Buffalo Wing sliders just take some Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce and add it to a covered bowl. Just like with the Garlic Parmesan sauce shake the daylights out of it until the sauce covers all parts of the chicken.
The topper for these sliders is a Blue Cheese Sauce that is a perfect combination with the bite of the cheese, creaminess and then the crunch of the celery. The perfect topping!
Put chicken onto your slider buns. Viola! Take your sauce & slather it all over the top of your sliders. Add tomato and lettuce so you get your veggies. And here you are……
