Buffalo Chicken Sliders With Coleslaw

These sliders are perfect for Super Bowl Sunday's menu. They start with a moist tender rotisserie chicken, tossed and coated in a sweet, tangy, hot sauce then a crunchy sweet and tangy coleslaw all placed inside of a crusty, soft, airy slider roll, the most amazing rolls, these are so simple to make literally few minutes because you have a cooked chicken and just dump in the ingredients and warm them up, you can make the coleslaw the night before, or for a crispy coleslaw make just about 1 hour before making these sliders, with this bread they hold up perfectly, instead of when you bite into a regular slider roll they usually can't hold up to the filling, but these do so load up your sandwich and enjoy these, your first bite will be wow, just like I said when I tried them today after I saw this recipe, I had to try first before making for Super Bowl, I have gotten these rolls before, and use them for various recipes but are perfect for this slider recipe. In any sandwich you eat, to me the most important part of it is the BREAD, then of coarse what you put into your sandwich. 

Ingredients For The Sliders:
  • 8 La Brea Bakery Take and Bake Telera Slider Rolls
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 2 Teaspoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup hot buffalo wing sauce
  • Ingredients For The Coleslaw:
  • 3 Tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup mayonnaise, ( more or less to your desire)
  • 1 bag coleslaw mix 

  • If desired optional: 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese, toss in coleslaw mix 

  • 1. Bake the rolls according to directions on package then remove from oven and let cool. Cut rolls in half and then just set them aside.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan add the butter and melt in over medium-high heat. Then add the honey and buffalo wing sauce, whisk just until smooth and warmed through. Add in the chicken and toss until completely coat and covered with the sauce, and until warm. Remove the pan from heat, cover with a lid to keep warm.
  • To make the coleslaw:
  • In a large bowl dump the bag of the coleslaw mix, add the mayonnaise and stir until combined. In a small bowl add the vinegar, sugar, and salt and whisk until dissolved, if desired at this point add the blue cheese and toss into coleslaw mixture to evenly distribute. ( If desired you can keep the blue cheese on the side in a bowl for everyone to place on their slider if they desire) 
  • To assemble sandwiches:
  • Layer chicken over bottom halves of slider rolls, then place coleslaw on top of the chicken and cover with top halves of slider rolls. Serve immediately.
