I love Sliders so much and so does my family! But there’s something we love even more than sliders; the famous buffalo chicken sliders!
The creamy, cheesy, and savory dip that goes well with carrots, celery sticks, and saltine crackers is something I specially prepare for movie or game nights. Therefore, for my family’s love for buffalo chicken, I gave our weekly sliders the same taste.
The entire family enjoys these delicious buffalo chicken sliders alongside coleslaw, mashed potatoes, and sometimes cheesy potato wedges or skins. Some days, I slightly change the slider fillings; however, buffalo chicken filling is an all-time family favorite.
Don’t you just love a quick, easy, and cheesy meal that takes hardly 30 minutes to prepare? Well, I do, for one! And these tasty buffalo chicken sliders fall straight into the criteria!
The buffalo chicken sliders are your go-to meal when craving a sloppy burger with the savory flavor of chicken, the sharpness of cheese, and the creaminess of ranch sauce. Top it all up with garlic butter, and you have yourself a soft, buttery, melt-in-the-mouth slider!
And that’s what we love about it! This buffalo chicken slider recipe is a simple mix-and-bake recipe where you have to mix all the ingredients to make the slider filling and put it on the bottom half of the dinner rolls. Add cheese and jalapenos before placing the top half, and brush it with mouthwatering garlic butter.
It’s the perfect dish for a quick dinner, a great idea for kids’ lunchbox, and an ideal choice to take to a BBQ afternoon or potluck supper. The best part? You can prepare this dish in under 30 minutes!
Here’s a list of everything you need to make the delectable buffalo chicken sliders:
- 1 cup cooked chicken: I used simple stir-fried shredded chicken for this recipe; however, you can also use rotisserie chicken for the best taste.
- 12 dinner rolls: You can use any store-bought dinner rolls to make these sliders.
- ½ cup buffalo sauce: As we’re making buffalo chicken sliders, I’ll use the buffalo wing sauce. But you can switch it with any other sauce of your preference.
- ½ cup chopped cilantro and dill: To add a splash of fresh green to the sliders.
- ½ cup ranch dressing: You can use any store-bought ranch dressing.
- 1 cup shredded cheese: I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella, but any melty cheese will do.
- ½ cup sliced jalapeños: To spice things up!
- 2 tablespoons garlic butter: For a crispy yet buttery slider top.
Here are some common queries to help you with the recipe:
You can prepare the buffalo chicken filling ahead of time; however, I suggest assembling and baking the sliders right before serving.
If you’re preparing the chicken filling ahead of time, you can place it in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
You can use any slider buns for this recipe. But if you’re looking for a specific name, I’d suggest going for Hawaiian rolls. They are slightly sweet and uber-soft!
Buffalo chicken sliders are a complete meal; however, you can pair it up with side dishes like coleslaw, French fries, potato salad, or loaded potato wedges.
Yes, you can! Just wrap the sliders tightly in plastic wrap and place them in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you want to serve them, just thaw them at room temperature, brush them with garlic butter, and pop them in the oven to bake.
1. You can also use leftover cooked or rotisserie chicken to speed up the process.
2. Swap ranch dressing with blue cheese dressing, as it pairs well with buffalo sauce.
3. You can use provolone, Monterey jack, or pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar or mozzarella.
