Ready to finally kick your gut issues to the curb? Imagine kissing food allergies, constipation, leaky gut, toxic pounds, cellulite, brain fog, and adrenal fatigue goodbye forever.

This tasty sun-dried tomato chicken slider recipe is so easy to make and packed full of lean protein. The combination of the basil and sun-dried tomatoes is so Mediterranean style and you can’t go wrong with these flavors together. You can make these for your children as an afternoon snack or use them as your protein choice for dinner. Ground chicken recipes are seriously one of the easiest, fastest to prepare on a busy day.


I like to cut make on red meat whenever I can and one of the easiest ways to do that is by making ground chicken or turkey instead. However, look for ground breast meat or packages that say 90% lean ground chicken or turkey, because typically packaged poultry usually is made from dark meat, and skin is added in. Generally, the thighs and legs (dark meat) tend to be more flavorful, but higher in fat. This is why I try to look for ground breast meat instead.

One 4-ounce serving of chicken breast usually contains about 160 calories and is a great source of lean protein. It is not only a great source of protein but rich in vitamins and minerals. Iron, B vitamins, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, and selenium. If you typically eat red meat and opt instead for a lean chicken, you can help to reduce your cholesterol levels by lowering the amount of saturated fat you are consuming. Chicken is also a great source of B vitamins, which help in energy production as well as to help form red blood cells in the body.

Ground chicken has a mild flavor profile, which means it will take on the flavor of whatever seasonings you choose to use for the recipe. You can go very Italian with oregano, parsley, and basil, or Mexican by using cumin in a recipe. You can check out my recipe for the best Mexican chicken burger. The possibilities are endless with ground chicken recipes.

Tasty Sun dried tomato chicken slider recipe

Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Sliders

  • Author: Laura Villanueva
  • Yield: 15 sliders 1x


  • 1 pound (455 g) ground chicken
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (14 g) chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
  • 2 tablespoons (5 g) chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 teaspoons (12 g) sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons (27 g) coconut oil


1. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, onion, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper until well combined.

2. To form sliders, take a spoonful of mixture and shape a patty that is 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm) in diameter.

3. Heat a large pan over medium-high and add the coconut oil. Carefully place the patties in the pan, as many as you can without touching. Once the patties start to brown, carefully turn them, and cook for a few more minutes so they can brown.

4. Then turn the heat down to low and cook for about 7 more minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle. Snack on them as is, or turn them into a meal by using them to top a salad.
