Grilled Chicken Sliders with Avocado
Yield: 8 sliders
1 tsp olive oil (or cooking spray)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
8 Slider buns
Onion, thinly sliced
Slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise (place your hand on the chicken breast then carefully cut horizontally) then cut each portion in half. Lay a piece of wax paper on top and pound them gently with a mallet until they are even in thickness. Season each side with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste.
Coat a grill pan with the olive oil and heat over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken and cook for a few minutes until golden brown then flip over and cook for another 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set on a plate with a tin foil tent placed loosely on top. Place the slider buns in the grill pan and let them toast for a few minutes; remove from the pan and spread some mayonnaise on the bun. Place a piece of chicken on the bottom bun followed by avocado, tomato, onion, and lettuce followed by the top of the bun. Serve immediately and enjoy.
