Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large chicken breast (about .5 lbs.)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. oregano, divided
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 6 potato slider buns
  • 6 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cut chicken breast in half, butterflying it, and then cut each half into thirds, yielding 6 pieces of chicken.
  3. Measure flour into a bowl, crack and whisk an egg into a second bowl, and combine breadcrumbs, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of oregano and salt in a third bowl.
  4. Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
  5. Bread the chicken by dipping first into the flour, then into the egg, and finally into the seasoned breadcrumbs.
  6. Once all of the chicken is coated, add olive oil to the hot pan and swirl it until it shimmers. Add chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until it has a golden crust and is cooked all the way through. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate.
  7. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and lay the bottom half of the rolls into the pan. On each bun put ½ slice of cheese, 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce, a piece of chicken, an additional teaspoon of pizza sauce, and the remaining ½ of a cheese slice. Add the top of the bun.
  8. Melt the butter and stir in the Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and the remaining 1 teaspoon of oregano. Drizzle that on top of the sliders, cover with foil, and place into the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover and bake for an additional 8 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve while still hot.
