Chicken parmesan sliders are an easy snack or lunch idea!

Love Chicken Parmesan?

What’s not to love about crispy chicken covered in marinara sauce and cheese – as sliders?! Yup, there’s a way to combine all these yummy components into crowd-pleasing mini party sandwiches known as chicken parmesan sliders. You’ve gotta check out this easy and delicious idea and turn a bag of chicken tenders into irresistible crispy sandwiches.

This simple crowd-pleasing idea is so adaptable!

I love that this recipe can be changed up and customized in so many ways from the ingredients used to the quantity made. I used a whole pack of King’s Hawaiian rolls to make 12 sliders, but you could double up if you’re feeding a crowd.

In fact, you may want to double up or use a King’s Hawaiian party pack if you want any shot at leftovers because it’s going to be nearly impossible to only have one.

Hip tips for making chicken parmesan sliders:

  • 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, you can swap for that instead.
  • For the cheese and marinara sauce, use can my recipe as a general suggestion, but feel free to use as much or as little as you’d prefer. You can also use sliced provolone or another type of cheese.
  • You can add any other toppings for the sliders, too! Pepperoni would be a yummy addition.
  • I added red pepper flakes for an extra kick of spice, but if you don’t like the heat, they’re just as good without.
  • If you aren’t a fan of sweet Hawaiian rolls, try using garlic bread!

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!

    I love sliders! I make something very similar…I spread garlic herb mayo onto 1 side of the rolls, layer sliced deli turkey and sliced Muenster on top, and then pour a mixture of a pinch of poppy seeds, melted butter, and onion powder over the top of the rolls. I cover w/ with foil and let sit for 10 minutes, then bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Remove foil and cook for additional 2 minutes (to brown the tops slightly). They’re SO good and a huge hit at get-togethers!

    These look so yummy! Just out of curiousity, what brand of chicken tenders did you use?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I believe they were Tyson – freezer section.

  3. Jackie

    These look yummy! If I need a quick meal, I make a similar chicken parm recipe. I use the tyson southern tenderloins, sauce on top, sprinkle parmesan cheese, slice of mozzarella on top of spaghtetti noodles. Easy and quick meal for a busy day!

    I made this last night for my family. It was so easy and everyone really enjoyed it! My 3 year old took her first bite and said, “mom, I love this!” My 6 year old gave it a 86 out of 10. We need to work on the rating scale so I understand how much she really loved it but she ate it all so I’m happy! Thanks for sharing!
