When we hang out with friends and family I like to make an easy no fuss meal. The point is to have time to visit and not be stuck in the kitchen. These sliders where a huge hit, before we headed out on the lake.
Chicken Parmesan Slider Bake
(Adapted from Taste of Home)
24 ounces frozen breaded chicken tenders
1 package (12 ounces) Hawaiian sweet rolls
1 package (7-1/2 ounces) sliced provolone and mozzarella cheese blend
1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
Preheat oven to 375°. Prepare chicken tenders according to package directions. Meanwhile, without separating rolls, cut horizontally in half; arrange roll bottoms in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Place half of cheese slices over roll bottoms. Bake until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.
Layer rolls with half of sauce, chicken tenders, remaining sauce and remaining cheese slices. Replace top halves of rolls.
For topping, microwave butter, garlic powder and red pepper flakes, covered, on high, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Pour over rolls; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and heated through, 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with basil before serving.
