  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts cut in 1/2 to make 8 pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk low-fat
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar based hot sauce such as Tabasco
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs pulsed in a food processor
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 8 whole-wheat slider buns
  • 1 pickle large, sliced into 8 circles (one slice for each slider)


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray; set aside.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and hot sauce. Place the flour in a second bowl, and the panko in a third bowl. Dip the chicken pieces in the flour, then the egg mixture, and last the panko, making sure the chicken is coated on all sides.
  • Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is firm and cooked through.
  • While the chicken is baking, mix together the olive oil, cayenne, coconut sugar, chili powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Remove the chicken from the oven and brush the chicken and the inside of the slider buns with the oil and spice mixture.
  • Place each piece of cooked chicken onto a bun, top with pickles. Serve.
