12count small buns or slider buns I use King's Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls
2.5-3cupsshredded or pulled chicken
1cupBBQ sauce use your favorite brand
½small red onionsliced
6slices provolone cheese
1large garlic cloveminced
Preheat the oven to 350°
Slice the onions and rinse with cold water or place in a bowl of cool water for a few minutes. Lay on a paper towel to dry the onions. kitchen tip: this helps rinse away the enzyme that keeps you tasting raw onions 2 hours after you ate them!
Slice the buns in half horizontally, separating the bun tops from the bun bottoms. Keep the buns intact instead of splitting them into individual buns. Set the bottom buns in a 9x13 casserole pan (glass if you have it).
In a bowl mix the 2.5 - 3 cups shredded chicken with 1 cup BBQ sauce.
Top the bottom buns with all the chicken- spreading it all the way to the edges.
Add the red onions, provolone cheese, and cilantro on top of the chicken.Place the top buns on the sliders. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in the microwave melt the butter, garlic, and parsley together.
Remove the chicken sliders from the oven, remove the foil and brush the top buns with the butter mixture.
Place back in the oven for 5 minutes.
Time to eat! Slice or pull the sliders apart to serve.
Storing & Reheating:If you have leftover sliders simply store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. They reheat perfectly in the microwave! Just pop one or two in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.
