Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Sliders (Paleo / Whole 30)

Posted by on Aug 13, 2020 in blog

Are you looking for a new, creative dinner recipe? I was too! So, when I stumbled upon The Real Food Dietician’s Buffalo Chicken Sliders, I knew I had to try it. This recipe fits in with the Paleo and Whole 30 lifestyles and is great for all of you grain-free eaters out there.

There are so many things to love about this recipe:

  1. A classic combination of chicken and buffalo sauce
  2. Bite-sized sandwiches that your whole family will love
  3. A grain-free bun made out of baked sweet potato rounds that add the perfect amount of sweetness to this tangy recipe.
  4. These sliders just scream “summer!” and I am trying to hold onto these warm and sunny days a bit longer.

Instead of grilling these chicken sliders, I actually just cooked them in a cast-iron skillet on the stove. I cooked each side for about 5 minutes before flipping, and I would recommend adding a small bit of olive oil to the pan because the chicken does not let out a lot of fat and you don’t want the patties to stick.

These buffalo chicken sliders whip up very quickly and are the perfect family dinner!

Enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Sliders

Original recipe: The Real Food Dieticians

Ingredients:

1 lb organic ground chicken

1 tbsp olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

2 green onions, sliced

2-3 tbsp buffalo sauce

2 tbsp almond flour

1 large sweet potato, NOT peeled, sliced into 1/2 inch thick rounds

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional toppings: blue cheese, avocado, sliced tomato, lettuce, sliced red onion

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. On a large baking sheet, arrange sweet potato rounds in an even layer so that they are not touching each other. Bake 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway, or until they are tender.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, garlic, scallions, buffalo sauce, almond flour, salt and pepper.
  4. Divide chicken mixture into 8-10 small portions and flatten them into round patties.
  5. Add olive oil to a cast-iron skillet and allow skillet to heat. When the oil is simmering, place patties in the skillet with about an inch of space between each one. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, until they are cooked, but not overdone.
  6. Create your slider masterpieces with the sweet potato buns and whatever toppings you want and enjoy!
