These are reasonably simple to make, and pack a lot of great flavors. This would be an excellent item to serve while watching a football game with friends, or just when you would like a small tasty bite.

They can be cooked ahead of time, and then reheated and assembled the day they’re needed. As a matter of fact, they can even be frozen.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Fun Food Essentials: Cajun Chicken Fritter Sliders

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. THE FILLING
  3. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Add all the filling ingredients to a non-reactive bowl, and reserve.
  5. Chef’s Tip: Since Creole seasoning can be quite spicy, add any salt and pepper at the very last. You may find that it’s seasoned well enough.

    I would also be careful with the Creole seasoning... maybe just add half, and then taste. The right combination of Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper will really help to bring out the flavors in this recipe. Have fun... experiment.
  6. THE CHICKEN
  7. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  8. Dice the chicken into small bits, about 1/2 inch (1.3cm).
  9. Toss the chicken with the filling.
  10. Cover and place into the refrigerator, for 2 or more hours.
  11. Remove from the refrigerator, and give the ingredients a final toss.
  12. Add the grapeseed oil to a sauté pan over medium heat.
  13. Add the chicken mixture to the hot pan, in 2.5 ounce (70g) portions, and flatten into discs.
  14. Chef's Note: Sauté until beginning to brown, about 3 – 5 minutes
  15. Flip and continue to cook until browned, and cooked through, about 3 – 4 additional minutes.
  16. THE ASSEMBLY
  17. Split open a slider bun, and then add some Creole spread, or other sauce of your choosing.
  18. PLATE/PRESENT
  19. Serve casual style on a large plate with some chips or other sides. Enjoy.
  20. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
