Clean Eating Recipe: Chicken Sliders with Parmesan Fries

I'm obviously not a food blogger, since I'm going to post a recipe without (gasp) a whole bunch of pictures. My excuse, one Drew made dinner (following, mostly the recipe I had set out for him) and two, I had no clue it would be That good. But I'm sort of pissed (not really, but sort of) that Drew's always hungry friend stopped over because he ate the last 4 sliders and those would have been SO GOOD today for lunch! Oh wells. We (Drew) will be making it again soon!

The recipe is one from emeals and it's a good one, we made a few changes so this is what we (again, Drew) did

1 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast diced
1 pear
1 cup minced yellow onion
12 mini whole wheat buns
3/4 cup plain greek yoghurt
1/2 cup peeled chopped cucumber
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon dill weed
2 sliced tomatoes
lettuce leaves
olive oil

for the fries
2/3 c shredded fresh parmesan
3 garlic cloves minced
cayenne pepper
any type of organic potatoes cut into wedges
olive oil

For the chicken, pulse chicken, pear and 3/4 of your onion in a food processor until ground, then form into 12 small patties then sprinkle with a bit of pepper and salt, coat with a bit of olive oil. Throw them on the grill till done- about 4-5 minutes on each side.

In a bowl combine, the rest of the onion, your greek yoghurt, cucumber, dill week lemon juice and a little bit of salt. This will go on top of your chicken when it's done. Also with a slice of tomato and lettuce. 

Stick your buns on the grill for a minute also to get them nice and crunch!

For your parmesan fries (might want to prep these first!) on a baking sheet drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, and top with your garlic, parmesan, salt, paprika and cayenne pepper. Pop them in the oven at 475 until they are gold brown, flipping once. Ours took about 40 minutes. 

That's it! Seriously one of the best meals Drew's ever made (and he makes a MEAN broccoli cheddar soup) and it's nice and healthy also (which his soup is Not!)

    1. Let me know how yours turn out! THe original recipe called for an apple instead of pear if you want to try that instead! I'll probably try that next time but it was Really really good with the pear :)
