My house smells like garlic bread right now, at 8:30 pm. Rich, buttery garlic bread. But it’s not. What I’m smelling are these amazing sliders. I haven’t even tried them yet, though I’ve been tempted. The cheese is oozing from within, dripping down the side. Yet another reason to be excited for Tahoe! Just like my Chicken Enchiladas – Tahoe Meal Prep #1, I used prepackaged, shredded rotisserie chicken. This is an incredible time saver that I will use again and again.
These would be fantastic to take on a picnic, tailgating, or that beautifully sunny day spent at the beach. There are so many ways to mix it up, too! Be sure to let me know how these BBQ sliders worked for you and anything you changed or would do different next time. ¡Salud!
2 ½ cups shredded roasted chicken
½ tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup BBQ sauce (my family loves Kinders® Organic Mild BBQ Sauce)
12 Hawaiian rolls
12 slices your favorite cheese (I used Havarti)
¼ cup butter
2 garlic cloves minced
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside. In a small bowl, add butter and garlic. Microwave until melted. Set aside. In a medium add shredded chicken, smoked paprika, Worcestershire sauce, and BBQ sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
Cut slider buns in half. I’ve found this work bests when they’re cut all as one. This way they are all uniform in thickness. Place bottom half of slider buns in 9×13 dish. Layer half of the cheese on the buns, top with BBQ chicken mixture, then layer with the rest of the cheese. Top with other half of slider buns.
Brush tops of slider buns with melted garlic butter. Bake until cheese is melted and buns are a golden brown, 10-15 minutes.
