Jerk Chicken Sliders with Gorgonzola Slaw

Yes – it’s another slider. Don’t judge a girl for having a million and one ways to use slider buns. Just listen. Or, read.

These. I just can’t even begin.
IMGP8207 Ok, maybe I can. They’re beyond fantastic – thebomb.com. Oh, wait, is thebomb.com so yesterday? Or was it so 2012, or maybe so 2011? Hell, I have no idea. I can’ t keep up. I’m now 38; to my kids I’m sure I seem ancient.

I’ve made these many times, but never posted them. I have a big, fat list of things to re-make, re-shoot, re-do, re-everything, etc. The list keeps growing because I keep cooking.

I have tried to make homemade jerk sauce, but so far I haven’t had much success; I get almost there but there’s some tweaking to do. I’ll keep trying, but for now these turn out beautifully with bottled Jerk sauce and slow cooked chicken.
IMGP8152 Oh, and of course, arugula. These are so simple to make.

And BTW, the Gorgonzola takes them way over the top. Do not leave that stuff out. Trust me?
