Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 Sliders


  • 1 ½ pounds chicken breasts or thighs (boneless and skinless)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground onion
  • Harry and David Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Sauce
  • 12 Hawaiian Slider Rolls
  • Pickles

For the Slider Slaw:

  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 2 medium carrots (grated)
  • ½ small red onion (sliced thin)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt


Preheat Grill:

  • Preheat grill to medium-high (or direct heat if using charcoal).
  • Drizzle chicken with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  • Preparing the Slaw: In a large bowl, combine shredded cabbage, carrot, red onion, olive oil, vinegar, honey, and sugar.
  • Stir well to combine.
  • Slaw is best if it can rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but is fine to use right away also.
  • Slaw will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, but lose some of its great crunch after a day or so.

Grilling the Chicken:

  • Grill chicken over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes per side until chicken reaches 165 F in the thickest part of the chicken.
  • When you flip chicken, generously brush chicken with Harry & David Kentucky BBQ Sauce.
  • When chicken is cooked, remove it from grill and let rest for five minutes before slicing it for sliders.
  • Assemble the sliders: Add a small handful of slaw to a slider bun. Top with a few slices of grilled chicken, drizzle with extra Kentucky BBQ Sauce.
  • Top chicken with a few sliced pickles and the top slider roll. Serve immediately!
