2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Pickle the zucchini

  • Thinly slice the zucchini crosswise.
In a small [medium] sauce pot, bring the rice vinegar to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the zucchini, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the pear–snap pea salad

  • Peel the pear, if desired. Core and cut the pear into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the sugar snap peas in half on the diagonal.
  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate.
In a medium bowl, toss together the pear, snap peas, lime zest, 5 teaspoons [3 TBL] lime juice, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the chicken sliders.


Prep and cook the chicken

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; if needed, cut the chicken crosswise to form 4 [8] equal pieces. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. With a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the panko with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
Working with 1 chicken piece at a time, dip the chicken into the egg; let the excess drip off, then gently press the chicken into the panko, coating all sides.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the chicken cooks, warm the buns.


Toast the buns

In a dry medium frying pan, working in batches if needed, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.


Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on individual plates. Top each with the chicken, 1 teaspoon honey-mustard mayo, and the pickled zucchini. Close with the bun tops. Serve the pear–snap pea salad and remaining mayo on the side.
