Using Pre-Cooked Shredded Chicken

What I love about this recipe is you have minimal prep if you have pre-shredded chicken on hand. I like to buy frozen chicken that is already cooked and frozen.

It helps me to save time for meal prepping later on. But, you can also pre-cook your chicken and use for meals just like this. A great meal prep item for sure to keep stocked in your freezer.

How To Make Crack Chicken Sliders

What To Serve With Crack Chicken Sliders

The Hawaiian rolls add a nice sweetness paired to the savory chicken filling. Here are a few of our favorite pairings.

Storing Leftover Sliders

These sliders are best when served warm and fresh from the oven. But they will store in the fridge for around 3 days. Always use your best judgment in terms of quality.
When in doubt toss it out, is my motto when it comes to eating any food leftover.

To reheat you can either place sliders in the oven covered with aluminum foil, or toss in the microwave for a quick reheat.

Or if you have younger kids you could pack in their lunch and let them eat the sandwich cold for lunch. It doesn’t taste bad straight from the fridge.
