Buffalo Chicken Sliders Ingredients
Recipe Variations and Ingredient Substitutions
Rotisserie chicken: To make this recipe quick and easy, I used a cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. You could use any cooked shredded chicken breast or chicken thigh. Rotisserie chicken sliders are just easier.
Franks Original Red Hot Sauce: You can use any cayenne hot sauce. I personally feel that Franks’s hot sauce has the best flavor, and it’s what the recipe was tested with. I do not recommend their buffalo sauce variety, go with the original.
Swiss cheese: You can use Monterey jack, provolone, mozzarella, etc. Swiss gave it a delicious flavor and helped balance out the spiciness. You can add bits of blue cheese if you prefer as well.
Dried dill: I love ranch that is heavy on the dill, so I added it to the butter mixture. You can use Italian seasoning, dried parsley, or whatever you have on hand.
FAQs about Buffalo Chicken Sliders
What to Serve With Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Coleslaw: I made a dill pickle coleslaw, but a classic coleslaw recipe is just as tasty.
Raw veggies: An easy dinner calls for a simple side dish. Grab a veggie tray or chop up some carrot sticks, celery sticks, and bell peppers. Serve with ranch dip.
Potato Salad: This ranch potato salad would be a great pairing.
Macaroni Salad: Another classic side. Try this Hawaiian macaroni salad.
Sweet potato fries: Sweet potato fries complement the spicy flavors of buffalo chicken.
Baked beans: For a hearty and flavorful side dish, you can make a batch of baked beans. You can use canned baked beans or make your own from scratch.
Green salad: A simple green salad with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and a balsamic vinaigrette is a light and refreshing side dish that can balance out the richness of the sliders.
Corn on the cob: If you’re looking for a summery side dish, grilled corn on the cob is a great option. Or you can make corn on the cob in the Instant Pot.
Pasta salads: If you’re hosting a potluck, try one of these cold chicken pasta salads.
