Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sliders Recipe with Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

Reminiscent of the iconic flavors of buffalo chicken dip, this buffalo chicken sliders recipe makes hand-held pockets of goodness! It’s the perfect bite of spicy, shredded chicken, crunchy celery and sharp blue cheese dressing. For extra flavor, brush rolls with butter and Italian seasoning, then toast in the oven!

For the best slider buns, we recommend King’s Hawaiian rolls. They come perfectly portioned and the slightly sweet flavor goes great with the spicy chicken. And to add some more cheesy flavor, choose Monterrey Jack to top your chicken. This California white cheese comes from cow’s milk and has a mild semi-sweet flavor. Worried about the spice level? You can easily adjust the heat in your sliders. For a milder taste, use less buffalo sauce and skip the spicy seasoning. And if you want more spice, add more seasonings or a few drops of your favorite hot sauce.

Whether you want to serve them for a party or game day, this buffalo chicken sliders recipe can be made ahead of time. Once you prepare the chicken mixture, put it in an air-tight container or zip-top bag and store in the fridge for up to three days. You can even freeze the mixture for up to three months in a freezer-safe container. Just remember to let it thaw overnight in the fridge before assembling.
