Ingredients + Substitutions

  • Hawaiian Sweet Rolls – The tender texture and sweet taste of Hawaiian rolls are perfect for this recipe. If you can’t find them, regular dinner rolls or slider buns will work just as well.
  • Shredded Chicken – Pre-cooked rotisserie chicken is my go-to for quick preparation. You can also use leftover chicken or cook your own using various methods.
  • Provolone Cheese – While provolone is ideal for its meltiness, feel free to swap it with other cheeses like mozzarella, Colby jack, or cheddar.
  • Honey Mustard Glaze – An effortless glaze made with butter, dijon mustard, honey, poppy seeds, and salt.

### Recipe Tips

1. **Cut between the rolls:** Using a serrated knife, cut between the rolls before adding the glaze. This allows the glaze to penetrate, enhancing the taste.

2. **Whisk the glaze well:** Ensure the glaze is smooth for a balanced sweet and spicy flavor in every bite.

3. **Prevent browning:** If the tops of the rolls brown too quickly, cover the baking dish with foil until the cheese fully melts.

4. **Serve hot:** These Hawaiian rolls chicken sliders are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven for a melty and soft texture.

5. **Experiment with flavors:** Customize the recipe by seasoning the chicken differently, using various sauces, cheeses, or glazes, adding extra seasonings, or incorporating sliced onions into the sandwiches.

6. **Doubling the recipe:** Use a 9×13″ baking pan to make 24 sliders when doubling the ingredients.

### Recipe Short Cuts

– **Use rotisserie chicken:** Starting with rotisserie chicken saves time and effort.

– **Bake in advance:** While best served fresh, you can bake the sliders ahead of time and reheat them when ready to serve.

### Recipe Variations

– **Buffalo Chicken Sliders:** Swap rotisserie chicken for crockpot buffalo chicken for a spicy twist.

– **Chicken Bacon Ranch Sliders:** Add cooked bacon slices and a drizzle of Ranch dressing to the sliders.

– **Barbeque Chicken Sliders:** Coat shredded rotisserie chicken with BBQ sauce or use baked BBQ chicken drumstick shreds.
