BBQ Chicken Slider Sandwiches
I’ve made these a few times in a few different ways but today I’m going to share with you how to make the very best BBQ Chicken Slider Sandwiches ever. Yes, ever!
Have you ever had a slider sandwich? They are quickly becoming my favorite easy to prepare meal for a week night because you can turn almost anything in a fun little sandwich that is perfect for family meals or even for large crowds.
For this recipe you’ll need leftover shredded chicken. When I make chicken for dinner, I’m always hoping I have leftovers because it’s easy to turn leftover chicken into another meal; especially now that I have this slider sandwich recipe.
I like to make my shredded chicken in the crock pot. The chicken comes out tender and moist and it’s easy to shred.
What type of Bread to use for a Slider:
In order to build the perfect slider sandwich, you need the following:
- Hawaiian Dinner Rolls – are really the best.
- Sarah Lee Dinner Rolls – these work great too if you can’t find the original Hawaiian Dinner Rolls.
- Melted Garlic Butter – is what makes the sandwiches taste amazing!
- You’re favorite fillings. I used leftover shredded chicken that I then added barbecue sauce to. But you can make ham and cheese, meatball, etc.
Once you have the proper slider sandwich or dinner rolls, don’t break them apart. You may also need to hide them from your family so they don’t start snacking on them.
The secret to making these is to make one big sandwich and then cut them after they’ve baked. For this recipe I only used HALF the rolls since it was just my hubby and me for dinner.
- Slider Rolls
- Shredded Chicken
- Barbecue Sauce
- Cooked Bacon
- Chopped Red Onion
- Cheddar Cheese
- Homemade Garlic Butter
Place the shredded chicken in a bowl and add the barbecue sauce. Stir to combine.
Next, layer the shredded chicken with barbecue sauce on top of the bottom layer of rolls, followed by bacon, sliced onion, and then the cheese. Finally add the top layer of rolls on top.
How to Bake Slider Sandwiches
Place the rolls in a baking dish that’s been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Then brush about 4 tablespoons of melted garlic butter on top of the rolls. If you don’t want to make the garlic butter, you can use regular butter.
Bake in a 365 degree preheated oven until the tops are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
