Why You’ll Love These Tasty Halloween Sliders
- It’s easy to prepare the Halloween Sliders with a few different ingredients, including chicken tenders and Hawaiian rolls, both of which are easy to find at the local grocery store.
- The Halloween Sliders are so delicious! Not only do kids love them, but so do adults, so you can get anyone to give them a try.
- You can customize these sliders to your liking and even offer them with different sauces, such as ketchup or barbeque sauce to emulate the appearance of blood for an even spookier appearance.
Halloween Sliders Must-Haves
If you’re going to make these adorable and delicious Halloween Sliders, you will need the following ingredients:
- Hawaiian Rolls – Grab a pack or two of these because you will need 12 rolls.
- Chicken Strips – Use roughly 18 chicken strips. While you can use any brand, Tyson is a great choice.
- American Cheese – Grab 12 slices of white American cheese to pair with your chicken sliders.
- Black Olives – Cut your black olives into slices or buy them pre-sliced, whatever works best for you.
You will also need toothpicks for when you’re assembling the sliders. Ketchup is, of course, totally optional, but I’d recommend it!
Notes for Easy Chicken Halloween Sliders
- Drizzle a little bit of ketchup underneath the top bun of each Hawaiian slider to make it look like blood is dripping over the cheese teeth. It gives these sliders a neater look! Of course, you can skip this if you don’t like ketchup.
- If you want to make these faster and avoid putting the oven on, you can cook your chicken tenders in the air fryer to get them as crispy as possible.
- This recipe makes enough for 12 sliders.You can easily double the recipe if need be.
Halloween Sliders FAQs
Can I make these with honey BBQ or buffalo chicken tenders?
Yes! You can definitely get creative and use any particular type of chicken tenders that you like.
What if I don’t like olives?
If you don’t like olives, you can still use them for aesthetic purposes, but you don’t actually have to eat them. In fact, they don’t touch the bread, chicken, or cheese, and will only be on the toothpicks. You can also swap them out for grapes if you want to avoid waste.
Can I prepare these sliders using grilled chicken?
You can definitely prepare the sliders with grilled chicken instead of crispy chicken. It all comes down to your preference.
