How to Make Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Time-Saving Tip!

Want to save a little time? Buy your favorite brand of boneless buffalo wings instead of plain chicken tenders. Then you can eliminate the step of tossing the cooked chicken tenders in buffalo wing sauce.

I have even gone to the store before the game and picked up hot buffalo wings at my grocery store. Then I didn’t even have to bother cooking the chicken tenders!

Do I Cook the Chicken Before Adding it to the Sliders?

Yes! Choose your favorite brand of frozen, breaded chicken, cook it according to the package instructions, and then toss it in the buffalo wing sauce before adding it to the slider buns to make your Buffalo Chicken Sliders.

Can I Make Buffalo Chicken Sliders Ahead of Time?

Buffalo Chicken Sliders are best served hot and straight out of the oven so I don’t recommend making these sliders ahead of time. The chicken is best when it is crisp so these sliders are best when the cooked chicken tenders are tossed in buffalo wing sauce right before being added to the sliders. Otherwise the sauce can make the chicken become less crisp.
