Best Ever Hot Chicken Salad Sliders

If you’re looking for the ultimate comfort food recipe for parties, tailgates, game nights, holiday parties, after-school snacks or a quick weeknight meal, these sliders are your answer!

My family’s favorite hot chicken salad recipe (people beg my mother for this recipe time and time again) baked into sweet Hawaiian rolls brushed with a sweet and savory glaze that is absolutely delicious.

The glaze has so much flavor from butter, dijon mustard, honey, and garlic. It is dreamy, let me tell you. It is brushed over the top of the sliders and baked so each slider is slightly crispy on top, soft on the inside, and loaded with tasty hot chicken salad.

The actual “hot chicken salad” is full of chicken (use rotisserie chicken to make things easy), celery, almonds, diced water chestnuts, and lots of cheddar cheese. It’s absolutely fantastic baked inside these slider rolls. I even love it cold!

Can I make this recipe in advance?

YES, it’s one of the reasons I love it so much. Now, you want to wait and brush on the glaze until you’re ready to bake so your rolls won’t get soggy. But you can stuff your slider rolls with the chicken salad and refrigerate until ready.

Ingredients
  

  • 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls

Hot Chicken Salad

  • 4 cups cooked chicken cubed or shredded – eg. rotisserie chicken
  • 3 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tbsp chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 8-ounce cans diced water chestnuts drained
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Glaze

  • 4 tbsp butter melted (I use salted)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 T dried parsley

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken with celery, almonds, chopped onion, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, mayonnaise, water chestnuts, and cheddar cheese. Stir to combine the chicken mixture well.
  • Use a large serrated knife to carefully slice open the 12-pack of Hawaiian sweet rolls. Place the bottoms in a baking dish or casserole dish. I found an 11-inch by -inch dish to work well. Fill each roll with a heaping scoop of the chicken salad.
  • Add the tops of the slider rolls back on top.
  • Whisk together the glaze in a small mixing bowl. Brush the glaze over the tops of the rolls. Pour on any extra glaze. Sprinkle the tops with any leftover cheddar cheese (optional).
  • Bake, covered with aluminum foil, for 12 minutes. Remove the foil from the baking dish, return the sliders to the oven and bake, uncovered, for an additional 10 minutes.
