Jerk Chicken Sliders with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

I love the combination of the heat from the jerk seasoning and the crisp sweetness of the pineapple. I made the salsa specifically to go with these sliders. The fact that it’s ground chicken on a wheat roll makes me feel like it’s healthy as well. Win, win!

Jerk Chicken Sliders with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

6 Servings - Serving Size: 1 Slider

I love the combination of the heat from the jerk seasoning and the crisp sweetness of the pineapple. I made the salsa specifically to go with these sliders. The fact that it's ground chicken on a wheat roll makes me feel like it's healthy as well. Win, win!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. In a medium size bowl add chicken, soy sauce, garlic and seasonings.
  2. Using a fork, mix well until combined.

  4. While meat mixture is marinating, prepare rolls according to package instructions.
  5. Preheat griddle or electric skillet to 350F.
  6. Trim each piece of cheese until it is the same size of the rolls, set aside.
  7. Slice each baked roll in half, set aside.
  8. Using greased hands, form six 1/3 inch thick patties about the size of the rolls.
  9. Spread oil onto the hot griddle.
