We all know Burgers and Sandwiches, but Sliders are something that is quite new in the Indian food scenario. It is prominently an American concept of mini Burgers which are more like a sandwich. Popular as a game food, it is a mini version of Ham Burger and is often served along with Beer. Chicken Sliders recipe is an adaptive version to suit our Indian palate and taste.

Ideally, a slider would comprise of a bun with a mini hamburger patty in between. Another variation is where pulled Roasted Pork is filled inside the buns. Drawing my inspiration from those recipes, I tried pulled Chicken almost 5 years back which came out amazingly good and became our hot favourite.
