Buffalo Chicken Sliders

buffalo chicken sandwich recipeA few days ago, I posted an easy and fast recipe for Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches.  I thought about the sandwich that I had for dinner the next morning and for the rest of the day.  How could I take that idea and make it into something else?  The sandwich took no time to put together, it was delicious and everyone in my house liked it.  Then it came to me, a buffalo chicken version.  I cannot believe that I have had this blog since February and have not included anything buffalo-style.  My husband lives and breathes chicken wings.  Obviously, it is a sometimes food and he cannot eat wings as often as he would like.  In order to appease his quite-often craving, I have made buffalo chicken pizzas, chicken sandwiches, you name it, we have eaten it.  But none of my buffalo creations are as easy or as cute as this.

I used the same technique as I did in the Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches, but have changed the sauce, made a blue cheese spread, and put them on super cute slider buns.  I also made a little salad that is a play on the carrots and celery that is usually served with chicken wings.  I used butter lettuce, shredded carrots, diced celery and a sprinkling of blue cheese.  I made a super simple vinaigrette and the whole thing was made and on the table in 20 minutes.

slider buns or whatever bun you would like
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup hot sauce (we use Frank’s at our house)
4 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the blue cheese spread:

1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon vinegar
3 chopped green onions
salt and pepper to taste

    These look delish. I might have to make them this summer. My family would love them. I bet they would be good as a wrap with coleslaw.

    Bree,
    I have to tell you, I am NOT into blogs AT ALL, in fact I recently just started browsing through them (I know, I´ve been living under a rock), so if I´m not a big blog reader, you can imagine I´m even less of a blog commentator, but let me tell you, I LOOOOOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!!! Love, love, love it! I´m a huge food person, and I especially love simple, uncomplicated dishes that look stellar, (so far, all your recipies fit the bill), PLUS I looove photography, and food styling, and yours is AWSOME!!! Your pictures are beautiful to look at, and inspiring as well. congrats, and I hope you keep this up for a long time! (Just so you know, this is the first time I post anything on a blog, ever!)

    Nothing beats Frank’s hot sauce. My hubby from upstate NY will love these. I always have a hard time finding little slider buns… those are so cute.

    I found them at Trader Joe’s, but I have seen them in the regular grocery store lately.

    It was so good. I could eat that at least once a week.

    When I saw the mixer in the background on the prep photo, I was wondering how it was going to be used in this recipe hahaha. I guess it was just supposed to be there for decoration.

    Anyway, these sliders look scrumptious. I cannot wait to eat solid foods again!

  23. bakedbree

    June 11th, 2010 at 8:38 am

    Why are you not eating solid foods??

    The mixer is always on my counter but usually I put it on the floor to take the pictures, I just forgot. But you know how much I love my Kitchen Aid!

    This was a little piece of buffalo chicken heaven. That sauce is awesome – the blue cheese and the hot sauce. Are you still spinning your wheels on ideas for this technique? Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    We’re making these tomorrow night and I was wondering how many this recipe makes so I can plan accordingly. Can’t wait!!

    it depends on how big your chicken is. I used Costco chickens and got about 4-6 sandwiches out of it.

  29. Kindra

    Probably my all time favorite (and easiest) sandwich I have ever made! Thank you, this will be a staple in our house from now on!

    I saw you said these make about 4-6 sandwhiches with one rotisserie chicken, I am making these for my husbands birthday tomorrow with about 12 people being there, so I figure that is 24 of these guys. Can I use chicken breast instead? and how would you cook it?

  34. bakedbree

    November 10th, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    Absolutely. I would just roast it in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.

    Hi! Do you think you could subsitute Apple Cider vinegar for the white vinegar in the Blue Cheese spread? That’s what I have in my pantry. Hoping to make these this weekend- they look FANTASTIC!

  40. bakedbree

    March 9th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    Of course, it will be great.

    Bree, I made these for Superbowl Sunday and they were SO very good! I’m going to revisit them with the barbeque twist. Sliders: yummy AND cute – everybody wins!

  48. bakedbree

    December 4th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    If you cannot find true slider buns, you can use dinner rolls.

  49. Alexis

    February 28th, 2012 at 10:20 am

    Yum!! I am going to the store and making these tonight! Thanks ^_^

    Im just stumbling on this recipe now! looks really good and I think i need to try these 🙂 where did you get the mini hamburger buns though?? ive never seen them anywhere.

  52. bakedbree

    March 18th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    I got these at Trader Joes, but you could use a dinner roll. I even saw mini English muffins the other day at Super target.

    Need to feed 9 adults (other food will be there as well), do you mean 4 – 6 mini sandwiches??

  54. bakedbree

    November 6th, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    Yes, it was two sliders per person.

    To make them genuinely “Buffalo” the rolls should be kummelweck–a kaiser roless brushed with corse salt and seseme seeds

  56. bakedbree

    May 8th, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    To each his own, I like them on any bun.

  57. Beth

    November 6th, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    These were delicious! Thanks for the recipe. Just to let you know, in the print out directions, you forgot to put “Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat” as the first instruction. I got to the end and saw my butter sitting on the counter. Then when I looked through the pictures, I saw it was the first step. I added it at the end and it wasn’t a big deal, but just thought I’d let you know so you can add it. Thanks again for the yummy recipe!

  58. bakedbree

    November 7th, 2014 at 9:30 am

    Glad that you liked them, and thanks for letting me know!

    My husband and I love this recipe. Is there any way to thicken up the sauce?

  60. bakedbree

    November 27th, 2014 at 1:35 pm

    You could maybe add a little slurry of cornstarch and water, but it needs to come to a full bubble.
