You only need a few ingredients for these  chicken sandwiches. If you (or the the small people in your house) are not a fan of spicy food, never fear! Just substitute pickles and cheddar for the pepper jack and jalapeños. Serve these up with chips, potato salad, or baked frozen fries for a 30-minute meal your family will love!

Easy Chicken Sliders

Recipe by Andi Gleeson

Serves 4-6


  • 12 frozen breaded chicken strips (you can also use fresh, grilled chicken if you prefer)
  • 8 dinner rolls
  • 4 slices of pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 c. pickled jalapeno peppers, sliced
  • baby spinach and sliced tomatoes for topping, optional


1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake chicken tenders for 15-20 minutes, turning once, until heated through and crispy. Remove chicken to a plate or cutting board.

2.Slice dinner rolls in half, and place them open on the same cookie sheet. Carefully arrange the chicken pieces on the bottom halves of the buns (chicken will be very hot!). You will probably need to cut some of the larger chicken tenders to make them fit.

3.Lay 1/2 slice of cheese over the chicken on each sandwich, and place a couple sliced jalapenos on top. Return to oven, and bake for about 5 minutes longer, until cheese is melted. Add spinach and tomato or other desired toppings before placing the bun on top to serve. Enjoy!
