Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Ingredients & Substitutions

There are a couple of elements in this buffalo chicken slider recipe that really make it special.  The seasoned butter, the sweet Hawaiian Rolls, and the Rotisserie Chicken. Combined, these three things make this simple slider recipe into a knock-out.

Seasoned Butter-The butter is melted and then seasoned with garlic salt and Italian seasoning before being brushed on the buns.  I’ll usually have a little left over so I sometimes use this when everything is done just to have one extra layer of the buttery goodness. 

Hawaiian Rolls-This bread is always perfectly soft and just enough sweet that you could use it as a compliment to both sweet and savory dishes.  I even have a homemade Hawaiian Rolls recipe if you want to make your own!

ChickenRotisserie Chicken is used in this buffalo chicken slider recipe.  You could definitely use cooked, shredded chicken breasts or thighs instead.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Sliders

  • Cut the whole loaf of bread in half, lengthwise.  I usually place my hand lightly, palm down, on the top of the bread loaf and then slide a bread knife through right in the middle.  This way, you can remove the top half of the buns at once.
  • Spread on the chicken mixture, making sure to cover all of the bottom portions of the buns. 
  • Add the top half back on and then cover it with the melted butter. 
  • Cover it with tinfoil and then cook for about 15 minutes.  Remove the foil, brush on a bit more butter if you want, and then pop it back in (uncovered) for another 5 minutes.

How to Make Sliders Ahead of Time

These sliders can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for up to three months.  Simply assemble the sandwiches according to the recipe, but hold off on adding the butter topping.  Wrap the sandwiches tightly in plastic wrap and freeze.  When you are ready,  take them out of the freezer, bring them to room temp, and add the butter and you are ready to bake!

How to Store Sliders

These are best eaten the day you make them, but if you have leftovers you can store them in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. I like to wrap them in aluminum foil and then place them in a sealable plastic bag. When you are ready to reheat, I recommend the air fryer or oven for best results. The microwave works, but the bread will be soggy.
