Chicken Sliders



  • 12 mini burger buns
  • 300 g chicken mince
  • 1 small red onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic finely chopped or paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • oil to grease and fry I used olive oil
  • Coleslaw
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Tomato slices



  • Sauté onion, ginger and garlic paste in a small frying pan on low-medium heat until they start turning golden (approximately 3 minutes). Remove from heat, stir through the cumin and set aside.
  • Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon. Add the onion mix to the bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • With oiled hands, shape the mixture into little patties that are no more than 2 inch in diameter and 1/2 inch in thickness. You should easily get 12 patties from this amount of the mixture.
  • In a large frying pan, heat 1/4 cup oil on medium heat. In batches of 3, pan fry the patties until golden and cooked through for about 4 minutes on each side. Make sure, you stand them vertically in the pan after cooking both sides to seal and cook the edges. Repeat with remaining patties. Patties can be kept in a warm oven until time to serve or heated through in a microwave for a few seconds.
  • To serve, slice the buns in half and toast them with olive oil. Keep the lettuce and tomato on one side of the bun and then the patty and then spread the coleslaw on top of the patty before covering with the other half and passing a burger skewer through the entire bite sized burger.


✔️ If you find the patty mixture too sticky to work with, add more breadcrumbs until it is less sticky.
✔️ Uncooked patties can be fozen in freezer safe boxes with freezer sheets between them (to avoid sticking while freezing) for upto a month. To cook from frozen, thaw in the fridge for a few hours before cooking. Alternatively, cooked patties can also be frozen and reheated in the microwave for a quick snack.
