Directions

For the mango sauce: Combine the onions, pepper flakes, garlic, celery, mango, habanero pepper and 1 cup water in a blender and puree. Pour the mixture into a large saucepan and add the sugar, salt and lemon juice. Simmer for 10 minutes.

For the sliders: Brush the chicken with 1/4 cup of the mango sauce and sprinkle with the salt and black pepper. Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil.

Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and discard the used marinade. Bake until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F, measured with a meat thermometer, 35 to 40 minutes.

Pour the chicken stock into a clean bowl. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, remove the skin, and then remove the meat from the bones and shred into the chicken stock (you should end up with about 1 1/2 pounds of shredded chicken). Add 1/4 cup more of the mango sauce and toss the shredded chicken until well coated. Reserve any remaining mango sauce for another use.

Place one slice each of tomato and lettuce on the slider buns. Top each with 2 ounces of chicken and 1 tablespoon blue cheese.

    Loved it! I didn't make the sliders, but the mango sauce was wonderful. It's got a hint of heat and a hint of sweet -- the perfect combination. And the best part is that it's so easy to put together -- just toss all of the ingredients into the blender and go to town. It's so much better than anything out of the bottle -- it tastes like what it is -- fresh! I used it to top grilled chicken with some cilantro for garnish, but it would also be great as a dipping sauce for coconut fried shrimp or a nice meaty white fish. Thanks Colette! Thanks Bobby! Eating healthy never tasted so good.

    I found this in a 'Buffalo Chicken' search and it isn't. Well, it's chicken. I'm not sure what Bobby thinks makes this Buffalo or not, but if he is talking about the classic chicken wing flavor, that would be lower calorie than the mango sauce and everything else. Kind of misses on what sliders are too. (no Bobby, a slider is not just a small burger

    On to the actual recipe, whatever it really is, the Bajan Merry Mango sauce is a waste of effort. A commercial mango chutney or even a jerk sauce is easier and has better flavor.

    Looks good, but how about including carb counts for the diabetics.
