Chicken Bacon Ranch Sliders Recipe

Rotisserie chicken bacon ranch sliders recipe is a cheap Super Bowl appetizer or finger food dinner idea. Using precooked, shredded or leftover chicken breasts on Hawaiian buns baked in the oven or air fryer to warmed little sandwiches.

Chicken Sliders Recipe

Chicken sliders can be changed up and served in so many different ways. Made spicy with buffalo sauce, mild with mayonnaise and cheese or cream cheese for Crack style. They are all delicious and easy to make in less than 30 minutes. (affiliate links present)

Chicken Sliders Recipe

If you don’t want to heat up your whole house we have a way to make these into air fryer sandwiches too. A great way to make a small batch with a crispy buttery texture on the buns. Any meat can be used really but poultry is most common. You can swap up the cheeses, from cheddar to pepper jack is wonderful.

In the event that you want to start from scratch, I would recommend making Ninja Foodi Shredded Chicken with fresh meat real quick. Leave it warm and then proceed with the step by step instructions from there. With leftovers you just dice up into bite size pieces and use like that.

Pulled Chicken Sliders

If you only have frozen meat you can cook Frozen Chicken in the Instant Pot this way too. In less than 20 minutes the whole thing can be done and ready to be baked for your party. You only need 4 ingredients to make these for the insides.

I like mini Hawaiian sweet rolls that are sweet in nature for this, and a brush of melted butter is a nice touch. At that time you could sprinkle on garlic powder, poppyseeds or sesame seeds so they will stick.

  • 1 lb. chicken precooked, rotisserie, shredded or diced
  • 12 slices bacon cooked, crisped, chopped
    • you could use Turkey Bacon instead but it doesn’t have as much flavor
  • Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 c ranch dressing out of the bottle, not the dry mix
  • 2 tbsp butter melted, optional but a great add on the top to get them browned and add flavor. You could whisk in minced garlic too

To bake these all together to warm it all and melt to an ooey gooey bite you’ll want a sheet pan for that step too. A large 9×13″ pan would work too depending on how many you are making.

You can make Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sliders if you are entertaining in the evening, it will be done by then. That way the meat can stay on the warm setting and people can prepare them one by one when they are ready.

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a lightly greased baking dish.
  • Slice the sweet Hawaiian rolls in half horizontally and place the bottom halves on the prepared baking sheet. Spread ranch dressing evenly over the bottom halves.
  • Layer shredded pre cooked chicken on top of the ranch dressing, followed by the bacon.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top of it all.
  • Place the top halves of the slider buns on the cheese.
  • Brush melted butter (or make Cajun Garlic Butter Sauce) over the tops of the sliders. Sprinkle with dried parsley.
  • Cover the sliders loosely with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the sliders are heated through.
  • Remove from the oven and uncover. Serve warm and enjoy these delightful Bacon Chicken Ranch Sliders!

Whether you have meat left over from the night before or make Pressure Cooker Chicken Sliders meat fresh for dinnertime these are so fun to serve, especially with kids. It is a quick and easy recipe your children can help with. They can assemble the sliders before baked and spread on the butter mixture themselves.

There are several other options for the filling you can enjoy with these or next go around too. If you want a creamy option with cream cheese I would highly recommend making our Ninja Foodi Crack Chicken first, then use it shredded on buns of your choice.

  1. You could use a number of different sauces to toss with the meat. Using Ray’s brown sugar you can make a bbq chicken sliders recipe this way, teriyaki works great too.
  2. After the holidays use diced leftover ham or turkey instead of this but the same other items listed below.
  3. Bake a Bundtwich loaf, add meat, bake and slice upon request.
  4. If you want a creamier mixture just toss the meat with your mayonnaise to coat well. Add the shredded cheese and bacon bits into the mixture so everything is mixed together nicely before adding on to your bottom bun. I’d still brush mayo on the bottom bun for added yum this way.
  5. Thighs work great for this as well if you prefer dark meat chicken recipes instead.

Pulled Pork Sliders are great too with red onions on top. Make a few when you have guests coming over the next time around and see which ones disappear the fastest! Jump to recipe below and let us know if you tweak it at all. If you do have leftovers I would save the meat separately, in a container inside the fridge, and prepare again the next day.
