Easy Chicken Parmesan Sliders

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

1

Cook chicken tenders according to package instructions.


2

Set oven to 375 degrees.


3

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


4

Place tenders in one layer over the rolls.


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.) 


6

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


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.


8

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


9

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

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.

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!

    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!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Lol that made my day! Thanks Ashley!
