  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon lime juice


  • 1 cup broccoli coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 4 ounces each
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 8 Hawaiian sweet rolls split
  • 1 cup mixed greens or torn lettuce
  • 8 slices tomato


  • In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, lime peel and lime juice.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the slaw ingredients. Chill both the sauce and the slaw until serving.
  • To make the sliders, cut each chicken breast in half widthwise then flatten to 1/2-in. thickness.
  • Mix together the cumin, chili powder, salt, and ground black pepper. Sprinkle each breast on both sides with seasonings.
  • Place chicken on a prepared gas or charcoal grill. Grill for 6-7 minutes per side until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees and the center of the chicken is no longer pink.
  • Place roll cut side down on the grill for 30-60 seconds until lightly toasted.
  • To assemble the sliders, place a small amount of lettuce and a tomato on each roll. Top with a chicken breast, cole slaw mix, then drizzle the top with the sauce.
