Chicken Philly Sliders are the perfect game day snack or appetizer that could also be a meal! You don’t have to live in Philadelphia to get the taste of their most popular sandwich. If you are on the slider bandwagon like I am right now, you have to try my Mushroom Swiss Sliders or BBQ Chicken Sliders! And, I have a homemade Hawaiian rolls recipe that would work great for all my slider recipes!
Chicken Philly Sliders
Sliders have come a long way since the 1940s when sailors in the U.S. Navy would eat mini hamburgers. The hamburgers were so greasy, they would ‘slide’ down the sailors’ throats in about 2 bites! When I think of sliders, I immediately think of White Castle. Who hasn’t ordered a few (or a case) of sliders after a night out? White Castle became famous because of these cheap and greasy sliders. In fact, it was the first hamburger chain to sell a billion hamburgers, and they are still going strong!
Now, sliders are not just the greasy mini hamburgers you have come to know or taste, and the ideas for sliders are endless! My Chicken Philly Sliders substitute chicken for ribeye, but keep the classic Philly cheesesteak ingredients of onion and provolone cheese.
Chicken Philly Sliders Recipe
I didn’t stray too far from the authentic Philly Cheesesteak ingredients when I made my Chicken Philly Sliders. I even stuck with the bell pepper and provolone cheese. What makes these sliders stand out is the butter topping! My mouth is watering just writing about it!
- Green peppers
- Chicken bouillon cube
- Brown sugar
- Worcestershire sauce
- Rotisserie chicken
- Garlic powder
- Salt & pepper
- Provolone cheese
- Hawaiian rolls–Make your own homemade Hawaiian rolls!
How to Make Chicken Philly Sliders
These sliders are pretty easy to make. It’s all about mixing together the chicken with the peppers and onion mixture and layering on the cheese! To make the butter topping, simply combine the melted butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Brush the tops of the buns with the butter and bake the sliders for 15 minutes at 375°F. When you see the bubbling cheese and golden brown top, they are ready to be cut or pulled apart and devoured!
