Fluffy and warm dinner rolls, slathered with creamy ranch dressing and piled high with tender and juicy buffalo chicken. But that’s not all! We’re taking it up a notch with a generous helping of ooey-gooey melted cheese and some fiery jalapenos for a little kick.

To top it all off, we’re finishing these sliders with a garlic butter glaze that will have you licking your fingers clean. It’s the perfect combination of buttery, garlicky goodness and spicy buffalo flavor that will have you coming back for seconds (and thirds, and fourths…we won’t judge!).

The full recipe with ingredient amounts and instructions is at the bottom of this post. You can save a tree and the recipe to your personal and private recipe box here on Call Me PMc. This way, you’ll never misplace it.

  • Chicken. Rotisserie chicken is great for this recipe. As well, leftover grilled chicken is good.
  • Dinner rolls. The standard for slider buns is King’s Hawaiian Rolls. However, you can use any small roll or bun.
  • Buffalo sauce. Hands down my favorite buffalo sauce is Sweet Baby Ray’s.
  • Cilantro. More or less to your liking.
  • Dill. More or less to your taste.
  • Ranch dressing. We prefer Ranch dressing made from Hidden Valley seasoning mix over bottled ranch dressing.
  • Cheese. I like cheddar + mozzarella, but you can use any melty cheese of your choice.
  • Jalapenos. If you prefer a milder jalapeno pepper look for smaller ones with smooth skin and no wrinkles.
  • Garlic butter. Real butter melted with freshly minced garlic. I use 1/4 cup butter and 3 cloves or garlic but you can make it milder if you prefer by using less garlic.

Buffalo Chicken Sliders Notes and Tips

  • You can store the BUFFALO CHICKEN SLIDERS in an air-tight container for 4 days in the refrigerator or freezer the chicken mixture in an air-tight container for up to 3 months. Let it thaw overnight then assemble the sliders.
  • You can use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken from a previous meal.
  • Use a fork or your hands to shred the chicken into small pieces. This will help it mix well with the buffalo sauce and toppings.
  • Make sure to toss the shredded chicken with buffalo sauce until it is well coated. You can adjust the amount of sauce depending on how spicy you like it.
  • Use a cheese that melts well, like cheddar or mozzarella. Shredded cheese works best, as it will melt more evenly.
  • For a little extra heat, slice some fresh jalapenos and add them on top of the cheese. Just be sure to slice them thinly so they don’t overpower the other flavors.
  • Buffalo chicken sliders pair perfectly with creamy ranch dressing. Serve some on the side for dipping or drizzle it over the top of the sliders before serving.
