Chicken Teriyaki Sliders

December 16, 2011

I'm not too sure if I mentioned this before, but, just in case....we don't eat red meat here in our house.  Okay, it's not like we never eat it.  We eat it very sporadically.  Maybe once a month.  Mr Plain is not a huge fan of it and besides me, not really anybody else likes it.  I know, weird.  So, instead of just giving up on meatballs, tacos, meatloaf and burgers,  I simply use ground turkey or ground chicken. 
So, these mini burgers fit us just right.  Or sliders, whichever you prefer to call them. 
These are juicy and the teriyaki  gives them a ton of flavor.  They are great for lunch, dinner or would make a great appetizer.

1 pound ground chicken
1 TBSP grill seasoning
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 TBSP canola oil
1 green scallion, chopped
garlic powder (or fresh), to taste preference
lettuce,pickles to garnish
Small buns or dinner rolls

Combine meat, scallions, garlic, grill seasoning and teriyaki sauce.  Divide meat into 8 portions and form small patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add canola oil.. Cook burgers in the pan, about 3 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
Place burgers on buns, garnish with lettuce, pickles or whatever you desire.


  1. We don't eat a ton of red meat in our house either. Maybe 2 times a month here. I use a lot more chicken and turkey! Love these little sliders!
