Chicken Sliders

I know that a while back I was baffled by those tiny little burgers called slider. Truth be told, I still am, but as a caterer, they just make sense and as a hostess they couldn't be a better choice. These babies are quick little bites that disappear quickly. (They're also super easy to make!)

For the Sauce:
1/2 C. Mayo
3 t. Curry Powder
3/4 T. Plain Yogurt
3/4 T. Ketchup
1 Clove Garlic, minced

Combine all of the ingredients above & refrigerate until sliders are prepared.

For the sliders:
2# Ground Chicken
6 T. Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
1/4 C. Green Onions, Chopped
2 T. Fresh Ginger, Peeled & Minced
2 t. Ground Cumin
3/4 t. Chili Powder
1 t. Kosher Salt
24 Small Dinner Rolls, split & toasted

1. Use pre-ground chicken & combine all of the ingredients minus the rolls. Form into 24 small patties (they should be about the same size as your rolls). If you find that the meat is sticking to your hands, wet them with a little water. You'll find it easier to form the patties with wet hands.

2. Once the patties are formed, grill or broil the sliders until done, about 3-4 minutes per side.

3. Spread curried mayo on one side of each bun, top with a slider and serve warm.
