Baked Chicken Parm Sliders

Chicken topped with a fresh marinara sauce topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and baked on Hawaiian sweet rolls and slathered with garlic butter.

My kids go crazy for these Chicken Parm Sliders whenever I make them. Actually, the first time I tried this recipe, they were devoured so fast that I had to make another round of these garlic butter baked chicken parmesan sliders…and they still disappeared so quickly!

If you have ever tried the popular recipe for Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders you know how savory and melt-in-your-mouth these sandwiches are. Instead of using ham and cheese, we swapped out chicken and marinara sauce. They become the perfect Italian Chicken sliders!

These Baked Chicken Parmesan Sliders are made with rotisserie chicken, marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, all on top of Hawaiian sweet rolls, and topped with a garlic parmesan butter. They are baked until golden for a warm Italian sandwich. The garlic butter is so insanely delicious and envelops the rolls so they have a buttery crispiness.

What rolls should you use for these Baked Chicken Parmesan Sliders:

I always reach for Hawaiian sweet rolls. They come in a 12-pack, all baked together. They are super soft and the perfect size for these sliders.

How to make the Best Chicken Parm Sliders:

  1. Line a 9 x 9 or 9 x 13 baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. This is an important step because the cheese will melt and can stick to the foil. 
  2. I suggest using Hawaiian sweet rolls. Use a long serrated knife to slice the rolls in half, lengthwise, so you have a slab of rolls. Don’t pull the rolls apart or individually slice them because you want the rolls to be completely connected. Place the bottom side of the rolls in the pan.
  3. Layer the shredded rotisserie chicken over the rolls. Place marinara sauce over all of the chicken. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and fresh basilI suggest using a block or ball of soft mozzarella cheese and grating it. It melts so much better than the pre-shredded mozzarella cheese.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the minced garlic, parsley, and parmesan cheese.
  5. Brush the butter mixture all over the rolls. Evenly spread it over the top and allow some of the butter mixture to drip to the base of the rolls. 
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake covered for about 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted.  Uncover the foil and bake for 3 to 5 minutes longer. Serve hot!

    My husband and I loved these, as well as our 17 month old! They were still yummy in the microwave as leftovers, but I’m wondering how I can prep them ahead to bring to a friend who just had a baby. I’d love to send her reheating directions so she can throw them in the oven when her family is ready to eat, rather than having to microwave them.

    I made these for happy hour with some friends. The were a big hit! Making them again tonight for another couple.

    Chicken parm and then you make it into a slider, I surrender! You win and thank you for winning, these were so amazing. So much flavor, the rolls were the perfect choice to bring it all together and into my mouth. Nice work MH!

  4. If prepping these ahead of time, should I still put the butter on or wait. Making these to share with a friend’s family, who has been sick.

    I made these the other day, I forgot to cover them with foil. But without the foil, they were crunchy, which my friend loved. My husband wouldn’t touch them, he’s a very picky eater. But my neighbor and I ate a bunch. At least she appreciates my cooking. The husband doesn’t know what he’s missing. Thank you so much for your wonderful, tasty recipe. It was great, and I will be making it again.

    Easy, fast, delicious! Even my pickiest eater LOVED them and ate several servings (that never happens). These are fabulous — you won’t have leftovers!

    These were just as you said, so easy and incredibly delicious. Brought them to an Italian potluck Friendsgiving with my close buds (covid safe). Everyone gobbled them up. Thank you so much! Dreaming of new combinations with the same method.
