These Chicken Parmesan Sliders turn chicken nuggets into cheesy, garlic-y chicken parmesan mini Hawaiian sandwiches that are perfect appetizers for a snack, potluck or game-day party.
Sliders, of any kind, made using Hawaiian rolls or soft dinner rolls, are always perfect for a party, potluck or tailgating game day function.
For example, like my Ham and Swiss Sliders, Spaghetti and Meatball Sliders, or my Turkey Cranberry Sliders, these Chicken Parmesan Sliders are made using Hawaiian rolls but add chicken nuggets, spaghetti sauce or pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese for a baked Italian style slider that was served at our Super Bowl party. If you would like the Best Chicken Parmesan in a slider form, then this is your recipe!

How To Make Chicken Parmesan Sliders

After you have all your ingredients then you need to start layering the ingredients for the sandwiches or sliders.
DO NOT PUT FROZEN CHICKEN NUGGETS ON THE SLIDERS!!
Heat the chicken nuggets per the package directions first! Then set them aside until you are ready to assemble the sliders.
Slice the rolls in half horizontally.
Place the bottom half of the rolls in the bottom of a baking dish.
Place 15 heated chicken nuggets on top of the rolls.
Pour the pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce on top of the chicken nuggets.
Layer slices of Mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.
Place the top half of the Hawaiian rolls over the cheese.
After making the sliders, make the Garlic Dijon Butter Sauce and pour over the top of the Sliders. Don’t skip this step because it adds such tremendous flavor!
To make the Garlic Dijon Butter Sauce, stir together melted butter, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, dried basil, and Worcestershire.
Then pour the butter sauce over the top of the sliders.
If you like, sprinkle come shredded parmesan cheese on top.
After the sliders are in the pan and ready to bake, cover the pan with foil and bake the Chicken Parmesan Sliders in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and remove the foil and bake another 5 minutes or until the tops are golden brown, the cheese is melted and the sliders are heated through.
When the tops are golden brown and the cheese is melted then remove the sliders from the oven and serve hot! Yum!
Serve these for afternoon snacks, a potluck, party, game day or a holiday party.
