Easy BBQ Chicken Slider Sandwiches from Walking on Sunshine Recipes

Have you ever had a slider sandwich?
They are quickly becoming my favorite easy to prepare meal for a week night because you can turn almost anything in a fun little sandwich that is perfect for family meals or even for large crowds.  I've made these a few times in a few different ways but today I'm going to share with you how to make the very best BBQ Chicken Slider Sandwiches ever. Yes, ever.  And they're easy too.  
For this recipe you'll need leftover shredded chicken.  When I make chicken for dinner, I'm always hoping I have leftovers because it's easy to turn leftover chicken into another meal; especially now that I have this slider sandwich recipe.  I like to make my shredded chicken in the crock pot.  The chicken comes out tender and moist and it's easy to shred.  Once the chicken is shredded add your favorite BBQ sauce.

Slider or Dinner Rolls

You're going to want to use slider sandwich or dinner rolls. Now, don't break them apart and you may need to hide them from your family so they don't start snacking on them.  The secret to make these is to make one big sandwich and then cut them after they've baked.  For this recipe I only used HALF the rolls since it was just my hubby and me for dinner.

You can use dinner rolls like these Sarah Lee Dinner Rolls to make your sandwiches.

Or the classic Hawaiian Dinner Rolls are always great and easy to find.

I am in love with this 8 Piece Ceramic Baking Set.  The pie plate is very similar to the one my sister-in-law, Beth, gave me a few years ago.

Place the rolls in a baking dish and then spread melted butter on top of the rolls.  I love using my garlic butter recipe, but regular melted butter is fine.
