You guys, THIS is it! The easy and delicious dinner that your family has been waiting for!! I kid you not — everyone is going to LOVE this dish (and you’re going to love how simple it is to prepare)!

Since we all have really busy schedules, I make it my mission to come up with simple recipes that anyone can toss together with a few basic ingredients and just a couple of minutes of hands-on time.

Because while sharing a meal with my family is incredibly important, the reality is that at the end of the day, most of us don’t want to be fussing around in the kitchen to prepare an elaborate meal.

Instead, we’re dealing with homework, cranky toddlers, and hungry bellies!

That’s exactly why I keep my kitchen stocked with certain staples that I know I can rely on in a pinch.

These are the ingredients that make everyone happy, that don’t require much effort on my part, and that (obviously) taste GOOD!

Ingredients for Making Chicken Parmesan Sliders

  • Dinner rolls: I used Sister Schubert’s® Dinner Yeast Rolls
  • Chicken nuggets: having a bag of frozen chicken nuggets on hand is great for last min recipes like this
  • Mozzarella and parmesan: I love the mixture of both, stretchy mozzarella and the wonderful flavor of parmesan
  • Brown sugar & Worcestershire: added to butter for a delicious topping
  • Marinara sauce: for spreading on the sliders
  • Italian seasoning: a must for chicken parmesan
  • Garlic and onion powder: gives great flavor

With a bag of Sister Schubert’s® Dinner Yeast Rolls from the frozen section, some chicken nuggets (always a favorite with the boys), a jar of marinara, and some cheese, I basically had dinner ready to GO!

These ingredients are a match made in heaven, right?!

Full of Flavor

As a mom, I love that the Sister Schubert’s® Dinner Yeast Rolls have 0 grams of trans fat, no preservatives, no artificial flavors, and they’re ready in 5-10 minutes!

Plus, they come in a resealable package which is super-convenient on those evenings when I don’t need to bake all 10 rolls at once.

But you know what? My kids (and husband) really love the taste of Sister Schubert’s® Dinner Yeast Rolls.

They are still made from the same recipe passed down from Sister’s great-grandmother for generations…and you can tell! They taste homemade, and they are an easy side to pair with almost any dinner!

Most importantly, Sister Schubert’s® helps bring everyone together to share special family moments — whether it’s a holiday feast, a quick weeknight dinner, or a leisurely Sunday supper.

How to Make Chicken Parmesan Sliders

  1. Bake chicken nuggets according to package instructions.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Whisk butter mixture until brown sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside.

When the chicken nuggets are cooked, assemble the sandwiches:

  1. Place the bottoms of the rolls in a single layer to cover the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  2. Spread marinara sauce on the bottom of each roll. Top each roll with 1 chicken nugget, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Replace tops.
  3. Pour butter sauce over sandwiches.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake.
  5. Remove foil and bake uncovered until golden brown.

It’s one of those dishes that I rely on because it accommodates my crazy life, it utilizes basic kitchen ingredients, and it keeps my hungry boys happy. I hope that your family loves the casserole as much as mine does!

  1. My mouth is watering just looking at these, Blair! Such a great idea to jazz up chicken parmesan! My husband loves chicken parm but I’m not actually the biggest fan. But, I definitely think I would devour this in no time. Love how you got creative!

    1. Thanks, Gayle! Yep, this dish might just change your mind (and it will totally keep husbands happy)!

  2. Holy moly, I love this idea! Excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard and head directly to the store. So excited to try these out!

  3. WHOA! UM….. I am not sure why I have never seen such an item on a restaurant menu before!!! HOT DAMN!

    1. Hi, Jill! I’d just serve a simple salad on the side for a light meal! Use an Italian vinaigrette or a Caesar dressing to stick with the Italian flavors in the sliders. Delish!

      Oh, and my husband always wants chips with his sandwiches, so that’s another good option if you’re looking to bulk up the meal!

    1. Yes, I use all of the sauce. It gives great flavor and adds a nice, crispy texture to the sliders. That said, you can use as much (or as little) as you like! 🙂
