This recipe will make approximately 8 sliders, enough for 4 people


  • Packets of chicken cutlets (ie: tenders) – enough for 8 sliders

  • 1 container of pre-washed arugula
  • Blue cheese dip (see recipe below)

2. Prepare the grill for medium direct heat, about 400 degrees, while the chicken is marinating; meanwhile- make The Blue Cheese Dip.

Blue Cheese Dip:

  • 12 oz. container sour cream
  • 4 oz. container blue cheese (the better the cheese, the better the dip)
  • 2 tblsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbls spoon dry mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt- to taste

Combine all ingredients and store in refrigerator.

3. Grill tenders on direct heat for 3 minutes per side or until thermometer reaches internal temp. of 165 degrees. Baste with additional wing sauce.
4. Serve tenders on buns with blue cheese dip, arugula, pickles and extra wing sauce. Serve with additional arugula on the side and blue cheese dip as the dressing.
