  • 12      small butterhead (Boston or Bibb) lettuce leaves
  • 12      small bakery slider rolls or mini buns, split and toasted
  • 12    slices  roma tomatoes
For cranberry ketchup:
In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, cranberries, mustard, ketchup, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and paprika. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cover and set aside.
In a very large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Stir together maple syrup and pepper. Drizzle over bacon slices in skillet. Cover skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove bacon from skillet. Cut bacon slices in half crosswise and wrap bacon in foil.
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, shallots, basil, salt, thyme, garlic and sage; mix well. Shape into 12 patties.
Place patties on greased rack gas or charcoal grill directly over medium heat; grill for 12 to 14 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degrees F), turning once. During the last 2 minutes, add the bacon packet to the grill and top patties with cheese.
To assemble, place a lettuce leaf on each roll bottom. Top with a tomato slice and two pieces of bacon. Top with a burger and a spoonful of cranberry ketchup. Add roll tops. Makes 12 sliders.
  • * Have the butcher grind skinless, boneless chicken thighs for you.
