Honey Sweet Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Sliders Recipe

Hawaiian BBQ chicken sliders get us in the mood for summer. Not that we need help in that area. None of us enjoy the frigid temps of winter over here. That’s why it’s fun to eat appetizers and snacks like BBQ chicken sliders all year round.

Sliders are one of those foods that work for most occasions. Whenever a tiny sandwich is appropriate, chicken sliders are the ticket. In fact, maybe set up a DIY slider bar at your next party. Serve shredded chicken and buns and let the guest choose the rest of their toppings.

Did I just come up with that? Doubtful. But, if I did, I’d have to pat my head a little.

For another tasty slider option, check out these French dip sliders. Baked in the oven, the melted cheese on top of the roast beef looks absolutely irresistible!
