I’m not sure what I love most about these little chicken sliders.
I’m so in love with feta cheese. Tabbouleh rocks, and although traditionally has some type of grain in it, like bulgar, I decided to leave it out this time.
One of my favorite things to eat in the entire world is pita chips dipped in hummus, then dipped in tabbouleh. There’s NOTHING like it in the world!! I do love some baba ganoush, too (if it’s made the right way). My love for these started several years ago – about 17 (Jesus, where did the time go) – with a little middle eastern restaurant/store close to where I live called Naji’s Pita Gourmet. Hands down, they make the best hummus I’ve ever had in my life.
This slider is like the epitome of sammy perfection.
It’s crispy, tabbouleh-y, feta-y, all on a soft Hawaiian bun.
Speaking of what I love about these – the chicken is coated in – Bacon.Croutons.
Yes. JD Foods recently sent me some of their products to try and although they’re all good, these croutons won a special place in my heart. Try ’em out – you’ll love them.
Have a great week!

Crispy Chicken Sliders with Tabbouleh and Feta Mayo
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 bunch fresh Italian leaf parsley, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp garlic (jarred)
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 cup mayo
- 4 oz. Feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups seasoned croutons - I used JD's Bacon Croutons, crushed or run through the food processor
- 2 eggs, slightly whisked
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- Green leaf lettuce
- Hawaiian sweet rolls, split, buttered and toasted
- Combine all ingredients, taste and adjust seasons to taste.
- Combine mayo, feta and lemon juice in a small bowl; cover and refrigerate.
- Cut the chicken breasts small enough to fit on a slider bun (pound them down if they're thick and quarter them).
- Mix the bread and crouton crumbs together in a large bowl.
- Dip chicken quarters in egg, then bread crumb mixture. You can do this twice on each piece if you want a good, thick coating.
- Heat the canola oil to 350 degrees and fry each piece until done, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.
- Make the sliders by spreading feta mayo on a bottom bun, add lettuce, chicken and tabbouleh.
