BUFFALO CHICKEN SLIDERS INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • 3 cups shredded chicken
  • ¾ cup buffalo sauce
  • 7 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 package of Hawaiian Rolls
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2½ tablespoons ranch seasoning (from a ranch dressing seasoning packet)

PRO TIP:

Sometimes grocery stores only have the 12-pack of rolls so you can buy 2 packages depending on the size of your dish and use as many as you need to fill it.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SAUCE: Any buffalo wing sauce or hot sauce will work for this perfect appetizer. If you have a homemade buffalo sauce you like to use, you can also opt for that.

CHICKEN: You can use rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken breasts that have been baked or grilled for this recipe.

HOW TO MAKE THIS BUFFALO CHICKEN SLIDERS RECIPE

STEP ONE: Begin by preheating the oven to 350°F. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

STEP TWO: Melt three tablespoons of butter with ¾ cup buffalo sauce. Stir to combine the sauce and butter.

STEP THREE: Add the chicken to the sauce and stir until the chicken is evenly coated.

STEP FOUR: Slice the Hawaiian sweet rolls in half and place the bottom half on the baking sheet. Keep them together as a slab, do not break into individual rolls. Spread the buffalo chicken mixture evenly over the bottom half of the rolls. Then top with mozzarella, cheddar, and blue cheese. Place the top half of the rolls on top.

STEP FIVE: Melt the remaining four tablespoons of butter and stir in ranch seasoning, then brush melted butter mixture over the top of the rolls. 

PRO TIP:

Don’t skimp on the butter. It soaks into all the nooks and crannies and adds a ton of flavor to both the top and the bottom half of the slider buns.

STEP SIX: Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted. You can cover with foil if the top of the rolls are browning too quickly.

HOW TO SERVE

These spicy chicken sliders are a go-to for me. Served warm with coleslaw or macaroni salad, it’s the perfect option for me to prepare for an easy meal.

They also are excellent as a tasty game day appetizer. This recipe goes great on a party table paired with our Hawaiian Macaroni Salad and seven-layer dip. Plus, our instant pot chicken wings — they’re amazing!
