"I liked these that a local restaurant chain made so much, I came up with my own take on this. Blackened chicken with a chipotle aioli and caramelized onion just complement each other well. These are good mini-sized or meal-sized. It's easy to prep ingredients ahead of time and just cook the chicken when you are ready. For large sandwiches, cut each chicken breast into 2 pieces."

This was a great starting point for a fabulous recipe! We used lemon instead of lime juice in the marinade, only 1 cup of white wine (per other reviews) and probably marinated it for only 6 hours, but it turned out perfectly. We used a blackening seasoning we already had and the chicken was the hit of our dinner party. We had lots of compliments on the aioli, though we did substitute ancho chili powder instead of chipotle due to availability. Thank you so much for the great recipe - these fabulous chicken sandwiches will definitely be making it into our regular recipe rotation!
I may be biased as this was my recipe, but I love it. Yes, it can be a very spicy seasoning rub, but you can put as little or as much as youd like or use something different to suit your tastes as others have done. I am so glad so many people are enjoying this recipe!
The chicken is very tasty.
The overall taste is interesting (unusual and good).
But 5 stars? No. This isn't the sort of thing you make when your mother-in-law visits so that you can secretly smirk when she takes her first bite. This isn't as good as the best chicken sandwich I've ever tasted.
It's an above-average chicken sandwich that requires a considerably above-average effort and list of ingredients to put together. Definitely worth trying, but definitely not worth 5 stars.
Delicious chicken sliders! Messy but yummy! They had a great flavor although, not for the faint of heart when it comes to spice. One cup of white wine would have been plenty for the marinade. I only marinaded about 4 hours and it was still delicious. I'm sure it would be even better if it marinated overnight. The blackened seasoning was salty and spicy. I like a medium level of spiciness and next time I would cut cayenne in half as well as the salt. I served these on small onion rolls with arugula and sliced tomatoes.
These were excellent! I didn't change anything about the recipe as it was well written and very clear other than I used a smokey sharp cheese and mini ciabatta rolls that I brushed with olive oil and grilled a bit for some crunch. I have been battling some serious stomach issues and I didn't find these to spicy they had a good balance of flavor. We inhaled these and we will be making them again. So yummy!
The first time I made these I thought they were delicious, but my husnamd didn't care for them. This inspired me for a great sandwich the second time around, and it cut the prep time down to practically nothing, and my husband liked them even more. I was in a crunch so I skipped the marinade and blackended seasoning, and just seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder and creole seasoning (you don't need much, as the mayo is already so flavorful). I replaced the onions with a slaw that added great crunch (bagged cabbage and added oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt, pepper and a bit of sugar). I then topped the sandwich with some thick slices of bacon and the mayo as written int the recipe and they were amazing! The mayo is incredible...definitely the star of the show and can make anything delicious!
I thought this was a cool idea! I used chicken tenders and made mini sliders. To get the best flavor out of the onions, you need to caramelize them slowly and until they're a rich brown. The chipotle was a nice addition too. Thanks for sharing. :o)
Recipe Group Selection: 06, April 2013 ~ We had 2 selections this week, this being one of them. My family loved these little sliders that I served on Hawaiian rolls. I did only use 1 cup of white wine (Pinot Grigio) in the marinade, but kept the other ingredients to the amounts listed. Everyone really enjoyed the chipotle aioli and the flavor that it added to the sandwiches. I served these with coleslaw and baked ‘Chip Truck Fries’ from AR. Recipe was a hit and will be a good summer sandwich that I look forward to trying on the grill. Thanks cloud2sunshine for sharing your recipe.
