These are super easy to make, and you can adjust the heat to your liking, my kids adore these. Make more and they are great for appetizers at a casual party or snacks for the guys watching a game.

Wing sauce and blue cheese... in one adorable chicken slider?! Sign us up! The sauce has just the right balance of spicy and creamy. Served with warm, crispy chicken on a soft slider roll, these are delicious. This dish is delightfully easy and turns out one memorable snack while watching football. Enjoy!

How To Make buffalo chicken sliders

Test Kitchen Tips
Don't like blue cheese? Ranch dressing is a delicious substitution.
  • Preparing chicken nuggets.
    Prepare chicken nuggets according to directions.
  • Mayo, dressing, wing sauce, and celery salt whisked together in a bowl.
    Meanwhile, mix together mayo, dressing, wing sauce, and celery salt. Set aside.
  • Slicing the dinner rolls.
    Slice dinner rolls in half, to make buns. Lightly toast if desired... keeps them firm once assembled.
  • Sauce spread on the dinner rolls.
    Spread rolls top and bottom with prepared sauce.
  • Spinach and chicken placed on the roll.
    Place spinach leaf. Then top with one/two nugget(s) on each roll bottom.

    Top with celery sticks or serve alongside, put on the top half of the roll. Enjoy.

    For a really cute presentation, use a skewer, poke a hole through the sandwich, and use celery sticks as toothpicks to hold the sandwich together.
