This simple crowd-pleasing idea is so adaptable!

I love that this recipe can be changed up and customized in so many ways.

  • I used a bag of frozen chicken tenders for that awesome crunch, but you can use nuggets or create your own homemade chicken tenders for this recipe. If shredded chicken sounds more appealing or more convenient, then use that.
  • Also on the cheese and marinara sauce, use my recipe as a general suggestion and add as much as you’d prefer. You can also use sliced provolone or another type of cheese. Pepperoni would be yummy added to this idea as well.

Build the ultimate gooey & cheesy party sliders with crispy chicken and dinner rolls!

Prep Time: 20 minutes


Cook Time: 20 minutes



  • 1.25 pounds breaded chicken tenders, prepared
  • 12 pack of dinner rolls (such as King's Hawaiian)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped basil


  • Step 1:

    Cook chicken tenders according to package instructions.

  • Step 2:

    Set oven to 375 degrees.

  • Step 3:

    Using a serrated knife, cut the sheet of rolls in half. Place the bottom half into a greased casserole dish.

  • Step 4:

    Place tenders in one layer over the rolls.

  • Step 5:

    Spoon sauce over the chicken. (Use as much sauce and cheese as you see fit. We don't like a ton of sauce, so adjust to taste.) 

  • Step 6:

    Add both mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese on top of sauce. Place the other half of the rolls back on top.

  • Step 7:

    Whisk melted butter with garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes. Pour over the top and brush over rolls. Add a little additional Parmesan cheese to the top if desired.

  • Step 8:

    Place in the oven to bake for about 15-20 minutes until melted and browned. Be careful, as mine were almost too browned.

  • Step 9:

    Garnish with fresh chopped basil and cut individual sandwiches to serve. Makes 12 mini sandwiches.

These are insanely delicious!

I served them for dinner with a large salad and my family LOVED these melted sandwiches. You can also serve them as a yummy appetizer instead. The crispy tenders with melted cheese and buttery rolls were YUM!
