The Equipment Needed

How To Make Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Start by making the buffalo sauce.

In a mixing bowl, combine your Frank’s RedHot Sauce, melted butter, green onions & ranch and give everything a good mix.

Then add in your shredded rotisserie chicken and give everything another good toss.

Take your 24 pack of King’s Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls and cut the rolls in half – lengthwise. Be careful not to pull apart each individual roll. You’ll want all the rolls to be connected so that you can pull off the top 1/2 of the 24 pack as a singular slice/sheet.

Place the bottom sheet of the Hawaiian bread, on a large baking rack.

Then, on that bottom sheet of the Hawaiian bread, lay down a thin layer of shredded mozzarella cheese.

On top of that, layer on your buffalo chicken mixture so that it covers the whole sheet.

After that, top the chicken with another layer of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Complete the sliders by placing the top sheet of the Hawaiian Sweet Rolls on the layer of mozzarella.

Craft The Butter Brushing Sauce

In a small bowl, combine your 4 tablespoons of melted butter with your parsley, garlic salt, and parmesan cheese – and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Using a basting brush, apply a generous layer of the brushing butter on the top of the Hawaiian Bread Rolls.
