For the sauce:

  • ¼ teaspoon lime juice

For the slaw:

  • 1 cup broccoli coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

For the sliders:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 8 Hawaiian sweet rolls, split
  • 1 cup mixed greens or torn lettuce
  • 8 slices tomato
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, lime peel and lime juice.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the slaw ingredients. Chill both the sauce and the slaw until serving.
  3. To make the sliders, cut each chicken breast in half widthwise then flatten to ½-in. thickness.
  4. Mix together the cumin, chili powder, salt, and ground black pepper. Sprinkle each breast on both sides with seasonings.
  5. Place chicken on a prepared gas or charcoal grill. Grill for 6-7 minutes per side until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees and the center of the chicken is no longer pink.
  6. Place roll cut-side down on the grill for 30-60 seconds until lightly toasted.
  7. To assemble the sliders, place a small amount of lettuce and a tomato on each roll. Top with a chicken breast, cole slaw mix, then drizzle the top with the sauce.
