Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Make these Buffalo Chicken Sliders for your next party and you'll be a hit, I guarantee it.

Easy weeknight meals are important in my house and these Buffalo Chicken Sliders do not disappoint. They’re creamy, sweet and spicy and give you all the flavors you crave from buffalo chicken and sweet rolls. These sliders also make the perfect party snack. Pair them with your favorite appetizers and just be sure to double your ingredients because you’re guest will want more. 

Ingredients and Substitutes

If you cannot find Hawaiian Sweet Rolls any small dinner roll will work here. I do recommend a sweet roll though as the sweet is a perfect combination with the spicy chicken. 

You can see the Shaved Buffalo Chicken I use here. If you cannot find pre shaved and seasoned chicken, I would suggest making shredded chicken breast and adding a little bit of buffalo sauce. I like the Kroger Brand shaved because its obviously incredible convenient but it is very mild in spice. However, if you make it yourself you have full control on the heat level. 

Linked the Queso we use and like. Great taste and good macros. 

There are a lot of great options for Tomatillo Avocado Salsa. I love using this style salsa because it is a great combo of avocado and salsa without the straight avocado fat levels. 

Cooking notes:

Keep the buns in one solid piece. Slice hamburger style and keep the tops and bottoms together while cooking. Once cooked and browned remove the tops in one large pieces and add cheese and salsa. Place tops back on and then cut. 

Bake for 15 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Be sure not to burn them. 

Recipe makes 12 rolls. Macros listed for one roll.
