Chicken Parmesan Slider Bake

Sliders are the perfect finger food for any get-together, and this flavorful chicken Parmesan version won’t disappoint. —Nick Iverson, Denver, Colorado
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    1 dozen


  • 24 ounces frozen breaded chicken tenders
  • 1 package (12 ounces) Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1 package (7-1/2 ounces) sliced provolone and mozzarella cheese blend
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil


  • Preheat oven to 375°. Prepare chicken tenders according to package directions. Meanwhile, without separating rolls, cut horizontally in half; arrange roll bottoms in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Place half of cheese slices over roll bottoms. Bake until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.
  • Layer rolls with half of sauce, chicken tenders, remaining sauce and remaining cheese slices. Replace top halves of rolls.
  • For topping, microwave butter, garlic powder and red pepper flakes, covered, on high, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Pour over rolls; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and heated through, 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with basil before serving.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Dinner rolls also work in place of Hawaiian sweet rolls.
  • Sneak a few slices of pepperoni or salami onto each roll.
  • Chicken nuggets can be used instead of tenders.

      Hello, could I used tenderloins instead? I know breaded would taste better but I’m trying to use those tenderloins up. Thanks so much.

      gailmarie, The chicken is precooked breaded. These turned out delicious, my most picky eater loved them!

      Would love to try these, but though it doesn’t say, am I assuming correctly the chicken is precooked breaded, not prebreaded raw?

      My granddaughter loves these, we make them at least monthly. mbdrake, that's one 12 ounce package of dinner rolls, not a single dinner roll. If you look at the photo/video you will see that they cut an entire package in half, they don't separate it into single rolls. It fills a 9x13 pan.

      Delicious and a hint of spice topped it off. I had to make a few with melted butter and garlic powder on top instead of using red pepper flakes for the kids. They loved them!

      I used regular chicken patties and hamburger buns. Entire family loved them.

      There must be a typo here. One 12 ounce rolls will not cover a 13 x 9 pan ???
