Baked Crispy Spicy Chicken Sliders

Making crispy, spicy chicken sliders should be as simple as popping them into the oven. This recipe will allow you to just that! I love these sliders because I can make big batches without having to stand in front of a hot stove for hours, dealing with oil splatter. This chicken comes out amazingly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside especially because it is brined in buttermilk. With a coating of black truffle hot sauce and topped with spicy mayo, these sliders were definitely a hit!

Make a Dredging Station

I like to add some seasonings to my buttermilk brine, but you can add your seasonings after the chicken breasts have been marinating. Don’t forget to also season the flour and breadcrumbs. Set up a dredging station like this to coat your chicken in flour and then in the panko breadcrumbs. I chose panko for this recipe with it’s going to help add nice texture and crunch to the chicken breast coating. This is especially helpful because there will be no frying involved.

Bake the Chicken

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the breaded chicken breasts on a rack to help air cicrulate under the chicken, allowing it to become more crispy than if you place it directly onto your baking pan. Cook the chicken for about 20 minutes. Keep in mind, they will go back in the oven after adding the spicy sauce.

Sauce Time!

Create a mix of Truff hot sauce and butter, then pop these back in the oven to keep them crispy.

Final Touches

It’s time to make the sandwich! Start with your toasted bun, add a layer of lettuce, then the chicken, and finally the top bun with a bit of Truff Spicy Mayo. This spicy mayo really ties it all together and is one my favorite products from the line. 

I hope you enjoy!

  • Total Time: 2 hours 25 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 chicken breasts (halved)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 TBSP garlic powder
  • 1 TBSP onion powder
  • 1 TBSP smoked paprika
  • 1 TSP ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 TSP white pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs *Don’t forget to season the flour and breadcrumbs*
  • 6 TBSP Butter
  • 6 TBSP Truff Black Truffle Hot Sauce
  • 8 Slider Buns
  • Truff Spicy Mayo
  • Lettuce 

Instructions

  1. Slice 4 cleaned chicken breasts in half (to fit the size of the slider buns).
  2. In a bowl, season the chicken with salt, pepper, cayenne, and thyme. Then pour in the buttermilk. Let the chicken marinate for 2 – 4 hours.
  3. Next, add half of each seasoning to your flour mix in one bowl and the other half to the breadcrumb mix. This will be your dredging station.
  4. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk. Dip first in the flour, then in the breadcrumb mix for extra crispiness. If you are frying this chicken, flour alone will be enough. Panko adds a nice crunch to breaded baked chicken.
  5. Place each piece of chicken on a baking rack, for optimal crispness. Then bake in an oven preheated at 400 degrees. For about 20 minutes.
  6. Mix melted butter and Truff hot Sauce in a bowl then brush to cover chicken on both sides.
  7. Pop the chicken back into the oven for 5 minutes.
  8. Toast your slider buns, add a bed of lettuce, then the chicken breast. Add Truff spicy mayo to the top bun and enjoy.
