BBQ Chicken Sliders

BBQ Chicken Sliders are the perfect addition to any dinner table.  They are small enough to be an appetizer, large enough for a small meal, and delicious any time of year.  Toasted Sweet Hawaiian Buns pair perfectly with the savory BBQ chicken mixture and the oh so creamy, melted Havarti Cheese.

Ingredients

Garlic Butter

  • 1/4  cup  butter
  • cloves  garlic,  minced
  • teaspoons  dried parsley,

Chicken Sliders

  • tablespoons  olive oil
  • small red onion,  thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves  garlic,  minced
  • 3 cups  shredded chicken
  • 1/2  teaspoon  paprika
  • teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • cup  BBQ sauce, any flavor
  • 1 package Hawaiian rolls (12 count)
  • 12  slices Havarti Cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° Coat a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Garlic Butter

  1. Add butter, garlic and parsley in medium bowl. Microwave until melted (30-40 seconds). Set aside.

Chicken Sliders

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the shredded chicken, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, and bbq sauce. Stir to combine and set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sliced onions and cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes (the thinner the slice, the less cooking time they need). Add garlic and cook 1 minute (garlic should be fragrant but not burnt). Add chicken mixture and cook until everything is heated through, about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Cut the slider buns in half. Place the bottom half of the buns in a prepared baking dish. Layer half of the cheese on the bottom buns. Top with bbq chicken mixture, then layer with the remainder of the cheese. Place the top halves of the buns on top of the chicken mixture.

  4. Brush the tops of the buns with the melted butter mixture. Cover with foil and bake 10 minutes, remove foil and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the buns are golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

MAKE AHEAD:

These sliders can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for up to three months.  Simply assemble the sandwiches as listed above, 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 to room temp, and add the butter and you are ready to bake!
