I made these up and my kids went nuts over them. They begged me to make more, cause there is something about chicken, tomato sauce, and cheese that just works well together! 

Could I Use Breaded Chicken Instead 

If you are wanting a breaded chicken instead of shredded, you could probably use chicken nuggets or even chicken strips. It would give you that breaded chicken that would add more flavor. 

I would almost look at the cook time and pre-cook the nuggets or chicken strips part of the way to ensure they fully cook.

Storing Leftovers 

If you have leftover sandwiches simply place them in an airtight container and store in the fridge. Then you can reheat in the microwave or cover with foil and warm up in the oven. Either way these reheat nicely. 

Or if you don’t want to reheat, sink your teeth into them cold. My kids gobble them up for snacks, lunch and any chance they get. 

Tips & Tricks for Making Chicken Parmesan Sliders

Creating Chicken Parmesan Sliders is a delightful endeavor, and here are some tips and tricks to ensure they turn out perfectly:

  1. Choose Quality Marinara Sauce: Use a high-quality marinara sauce for the best flavor. You can use store-bought sauce or homemade marinara sauce.
  2. Add Fresh Basil: For a burst of freshness, add fresh basil leaves to the sliders before serving. It adds a pop of color and flavor that complements the other ingredients perfectly.
  3. Serve with Extra Sauce: Serve the sliders with extra marinara sauce on the side for dipping. This allows guests to customize their sliders to their liking.
  4. Use Toothpicks: Secure the sliders with toothpicks to prevent them from falling apart when serving or transporting.
