Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.

Serve

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.
