These Greek Chicken Sliders come together easily and are full of fresh Mediterranean-inspired flavors.
You can go the full homemade route here or to keep things super simple, rotisserie chicken and your favorite store-bought Greek dressing (my latest favorite is Panera’s which you can find at Target) work great as well.
Serve with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and a dollop of cool and creamy tzatziki sauce.
This recipe makes 12 so it’s also perfect for a holiday party or family get together.
HOW TO MAKE GREEK CHICKEN SLIDERS?
Start off by combining shredded chicken with Greek dressing (I used Panera’s).
Assemble the sliders by arranging the bottom halves on a lined baking sheet or lightly greased casserole dish.
Layer with shredded chicken, crumbled feta and a layer of mozzarella slices.
Finish with top halves and brush with melted butter mixture along with some crumbled feta. Cover with foil and bake until cheese is nice and melty.
