This recipe is inspired from the very famous South Asian seekh kebabs, a popular street-side snack. Using chicken makes it healthier compared other red meat sliders, but trust us -- it's equally satisfying. Quick to prepare, these mini treats are a definite crowd pleaser!

Prepare and Make the Sliders

Step 1

  • Combine in all the slider ingredients with a fork to keep the mix light.

Step 2

After the chicken mix has been refrigerated for 1 to 2 hours, mix in the chopped onions. Now you're ready to grill!

Step 3

Form patties depending on the size of hamburger buns. I made around 3 ½- to 4-inch patties and ended up with a total of six burgers.

Step 4

Grill the patties, turning halfway through. The sliders can easily be grilled, cooked on a stove-top or baked in the oven. Cooking times will vary according to medium of cooking. For safety, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the burgers.

For this tutorial, I used an indoor panini press and it took around 16 to 18 minutes.

Step 5

Assemble the sliders and serve with the minty yogurt dip and pickled onions on the side. Enjoy!
