What Do I Need to Make Chicken Parmesan Sliders?
While chicken Parmesan can be complicated and time-consuming, these simple and easy chicken sliders are neither of those things! With five simple ingredients, you can make these easy appetizers in a matter of minutes. And even if they aren’t hand breaded and fried, they still have all the delicious flavors of your favorite Italian meal.
To make your own chicken Parmesan sliders, you’ll need:

- Butter. Make sure your chicken Parmesan sliders are toasted and golden brown by topping each of the sandwiches with butter before baking.
