Chicken Parmesan Sliders - Recipe Review - Home Made Interest

Tuesday afternoon, I was out and about yarn shopping (as if I don't already have enough - ha!) and was trying to figure out what to do about dinner. Todd and I had talked about doing Hamburger Helper as we have a bunch up on the shelf, but I wanted something more. I turned to the Betty Crocker site, but nothing really popped out at me. After about half an hour of searching, I turned to Pinterest and found these Chicken Parmesan Sliders from Home. Made. Interest. - perfect! I stopped by Winn Dixie on my way home, and picked up the few ingredients needed.

Yields: 12 Sliders (to feed about 4-6)

Prep Time: Less than 15 Minutes

Bake Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients:
     - 12 Sliders - I used 12 of Martin's Sliced Potato Rolls
     - 1.56 lb of Chicken Stripes - I used a whole bag of Tyson's Crispy Chicken Tenders
     - 2.5 cups of pasta sauce - I used a whole jar of Classico's Tomato & Basil
     - 2 cups of shredded cheese - I used a whole bag of SE Grocers brand Finely Shredded 6-Cheese Italian Blend (which included Parmesan, Mozzarella, Provolone, Romano, Fontina, Asiago)
     - 3 tbsp butter, melted - I like to use Country Crock stick butter
     - 1 tsp garlic powder
     - 1-ish tsp Italian Seasoning 

You Will Also Need:
     - Baking Sheet
     - Aluminum Foil - to cover pan, and sliders
     - Pam (or Butter) - for greasing pan
     - Measuring Spoon and Cup - I only needed a teaspoon
     - Knife - to cut sliders
     - Chicken Parmesan Sliders, Free Recipe from Home. Made. Interest

Ingredient Notes:
     Above, I have provided the measurements for what I used - all are off from original recipe. All based on what I had on hand, and how it played into the recipe. For example, the original recipe called for 2 cups of pasta sauce, but I didn't want to leave 1/2 cup of sauce in the jar, so I used it all. Visit the original recipe for their measurements.
     Shredded Cheese: Original recipe calls for 2 cups each of Mozzarella and Parmesan. The only Parmesan cheese I could find was $4 a bag, and I wasn't about paying that. I found a combo cheese that had both, and others in it. I bought two bags to equal 4 cups, but I only ended up using one bag.
     Baking Sheet: Original recipe calls for a 9x13 casserole dish, but they also used small slider rolls. My rolls would not fit in the casserole dish, so I used a baking sheet.
     Foil: For easy clean up on the baking sheet, plus is needed in baking process.

*All ingredients found at my local Winn Dixie - not a sponsored post.

Recipe Notes:
     In the recipe, there seems to be a debate in the comments about using frozen tenders versus cooked tenders. I put half of my bag of tenders on a plate and heated for 3 minutes, then repeated with other half. This cooked them enough to not be frozen, and then baked the rest of the way assembled. I did not have any trouble with cold or undercooked chicken, and my bread didn't burn having to bake longer.

I lined my baking sheet with foil, and assembled as directed. I used a teaspoon to pour the garlic butter on each roll so it would be more even, and then I sprinkled on the italian seasoning straight out of the packet - not really sure if I used a teaspoon, perhaps a little more. There's plenty in the packet though!

Baked as directed, and my sliders came out perfectly! 

I will say, I made the whole pack of 12 sliders this time, but between the two of use, we only ate half of them. I was worried that they'd be soggy when I pulled them back out, but they really weren't. If you are concerned, or don't want to make a whole pack, it can easily be cut in half for Lunch/Dinner for 2. Left as such for Lunch/Dinner it will feed 4-6 or work great as appetizers, as I think this would be a great finger food to bring to a party or to munch on before dinner.

*To ReHeat: PreHeat oven to 425 F. Lay leftovers on greased baking sheet, and bake 7 (to 10) minutes. I did 6 sliders at 7 minutes.
