>Buffalo Chicken Sliders are amazing appetizers and will be enjoyed by everyone. They are also great to have during a football game, or even at a birthday party. The recipe is simple to assemble, and it’s also great that you can make it 2 days in advance. When ready to serve, just quickly bake the sliders for 20-25 minutes, and enjoy them.
I always use Hawaiian sweet rolls for sliders. The rolls are sweet, puffy, and go really well with rotisserie chicken and the provolone cheese. You will need about 3 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken. If you like only white meat, you can use only the breast part, but I usually use the whole chicken parts.
Then, I mix the chicken with the buffalo sauce and mayo, and add it to the buns. Before baking them, I season them with melted butter, some garlic powder, dried parsley and red pepper flakes.
