Servings 12 sliders


Slider ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds boneless and skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • Harry & David Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Sauce
  • 12 Hawaiian slider rolls
  • Pickles

Slider slaw ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 2 medium carrots (grated)
  • ½ small red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon sugar


Preheat grill

  • Preheat grill to 375° F to 450° F (or direct heat, if using charcoal).
  • Drizzle chicken with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and onion powder.

Preparing the slaw

  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Stir well to combine.
  • Place the slaw in the fridge for 30-60 minutes for the flavors to meld. It's OK if you don't want to wait; the coleslaw is fine to eat right away, too.

Grilling the chicken

  • Grill chicken over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes per side, until it reaches 165° F in the thickest part of the chicken.
  • Flip the chicken and generously brush it with Harry & David Kentucky BBQ Sauce.
  • After chicken is cooked, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing it for sliders.

Assembling the sliders

  • Place a few slices of grilled chicken on the bottom part of a slider bun. Add 1/4 cup of slaw. Drizzle with extra BBQ Sauce. Add sliced pickles and the top slider roll. Serve immediately.


The slaw will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days, but it will lose some of its crunch after a day or so.
