One of the biggest sports days of the year is coming up. You’ll have your friends and family cheering for you when you bring these Chicken Parmesan Sliders to your Super Bowl party.
After you have these once, you’ll easily want to keep making them for easy week night dinners too.
My family watches the Super Bowl every year. It’s a tradition that I love, even though I’m in it for the commercials and half time show now. Instead of just buying chips and drinks, I made one of my favorite meals into handheld sandwich.
Before I go into how to make this, I’d highly suggest doubling this recipe.
It goes FAST!
But, you’ll score a touchdown with this meal by getting these ingredients:
- Chicken Nuggets
- Hawaiian Rolls
- Pasta or Pizza Sauce
- Mozzarella Cheese (I used shredded)
- Italian Seasoning
First, cook your chicken nuggets or tenders as directed on their bag or box.
While they are cooking, slice your Hawaiian rolls across the middle leaving a top and a bottom. You won’t want to pull the individual rolls apart.
Before putting the rolls on a cooking sheet, coat the bottom of the sheet with melted butter. After the chicken nuggets are cooked, put your oven to 350.
Place the bottoms of the rolls in the oven for around three minutes. This will toast them and not make the bottoms soggy when you’re eating. Trust me, it’s a much needed step!
When it’s toasted, it’s time to assemble the sliders.
Place a chicken nugget on each roll.
Then, coat them with pizza or pasta sauce. I personally like the taste of pizza sauce better so that’s what I chose to do!
Next, either sprinkle shredded cheese or place mozzarella slices on your sliders. I probably put way too much cheese on mine, but that’s the way I like them! It makes it more satisfying to pull apart after they’re cooked too.
Place the top half of the rolls on top. Add melted butter mixed with Italian seasoning and garlic over the rolls.
Cook in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
Once they’re done, allow them five minutes to cool down before eating.
I love the simplicity and quickness of this recipe. Mila and I both loved it and I know the rest of my family will too.
If you have any left over, they taste great as leftovers!
These Chicken Parmesan Sliders will definitely be in our dinner rotation for a long time. I hope they will be for your family as well
