Lightly grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Press half of the chicken mixture into an 11×10-inch rectangle in the center of the prepared baking sheet. Evenly sprinkle the cheese over the chicken patty and layer the jalapeños on top.
Top with the remaining chicken mixture, spreading evenly.
Bake the chicken burger for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
While the burger cooks, make the sauce and slaw.
Honey Mustard Sauce:
Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, and honey in a small bowl.
Toss together the green and red cabbage and carrots in a medium bowl.
Add the salt and rice vinegar and toss well.
Using a serrated knife, gently cut the slider buns in half to create a large top and bottom bun for the burger. Spread the bottom bun with some of the sauce.
Using a spatula, transfer the burger patty to the bottom bun. Top with the slaw, drizzle with the remaining sauce, and cover with the top bun.
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, honey, and sesame seeds. Brush the glaze over the top bun.
Slice between each row of buns, creating 12 sliders.
