Barbecue Chicken Sliders

Prepare for your guests to break the "one per person" rule...  

PREP: 5 Min. | COOK: 25 Min. | TOTAL: 30 Minutes.




  • 12 slider buns, split
  • 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded*
  • 1 cup Schultz's Original BBQ or Sweet Hickory BBQ Sauce.
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/2 cup smoked gouda, grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Fresh ground black pepper as desired


STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350˚F. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper. Lightly spray paper with non stick cooking spray.

STEP 2: Place bottoms of slider buns in the prepared baking dish.

STEP 3: In a small bowl, combine shredded chicken with 1/2 cup of Schultz's BBQ Sauce. Mix until completely coated. Spread chicken equally across the buns. Top with remaining bbq sauce.

STEP 4: Evenly sprinkle mozzarella, red onion, gouda, and 1 tablespoon cilantro across the chicken topped sliders. Add pepper as desired.

STEP 5: Place the top buns on top of the sliders.

STEP 6: Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.

STEP 7: While baking, melt the butter. Add remaining cilantro and set aside.

STEP 8: Remove foil from the pan. Brush each bun with butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, for another ten minutes, until tops are golden. Serve immediately.

Recipe Note:.  If you don’t have cooked chicken, grab 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts: Drizzle a little olive oil into a skillet and cook chicken over medium-high heat until the inside is no longer pink, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat. Once cooled, shred using two forks.
