Chicken Tikka Sliders vs Sloppy Joes:
Chicken Tikka Sliders are a unique take on Sloppy Joes! While Sloppy Joes are typically meat-based like our sliders, they are made up of ground beef or ground chicken in a tomato-based sauce and served on a bun. They’re easy to whip up and usually a party staple and crowd-pleaser. Sloppy Joes get their iconic name from, you guessed it, the insides falling out, making them ‘sloppy’ to eat.
Chicken Tikka Sliders, much like Sloppy Joes, are easy to make. Instead of spooning the ground beef mixture onto buns, these sliders have a chicken curry inside! We like to toast the buns until they’re crispy first, which really gives these sandwiches a little something extra. If you’re looking to shake things up for your next get together, this is definitely the way to go!
History of Chicken Tikka Masala:
The origin of Chicken Tikka Masala is a bit of a long and twisted story. We covered the whole lot of it in our previous post about the history of chicken tikka masala, so we’ll give you the shorter version here!
In short, we may never know where the exact beginnings of this dish due to conflicting stories of it originating in Scotland since it’s basically a national dish in the UK and also originating in India.
While the origin of chicken tikka masala remains somewhat of a mystery, everyone can agree on certain parts of the recipe. Firstly, the dish involves chicken tikka and creamy tomato masala. Secondly, it’s a widely celebrated dish and among the favorites of Indian cuisine.
For this quick recipe, you’ll need one package of Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala, two cups of shredded pepper jack cheese or shredded cheddar cheese, 12 Kings Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls, and one tablespoon of butter.
You start out by adding Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala to the frying pan to reduce it. In a separate pan, melt the butter in the skillet and toast the buns until they are nice and golden brown. From here, add 2-3oz of Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala to each bun and then add 1-2 tablespoons of cheese per slider. Serve and enjoy!
