I love sliders. Just so much. You might have noticed that I have several slider recipes on my site, in fact. They’re just so much fun to serve and eat, and they’re so darn easy to make. It doesn’t get much better than that. I make all kinds of sliders, from classic burgers to hash browns sliders and everything in between. One of my favorite varieties to make is these little chicken numbers. They’re absolutely delicious and they’re actually decently healthy for you! I love serving them for appetizers at parties, bringing them to potlucks, or serving them as a fun lunch or dinner on special occasions.

Grilled Chicken Sliders

These sliders start with boneless skinless chicken breasts that are cut into patty-sized pieces, coated with a bold seasoning mix, and then cooked to tender, juicy perfection. Then, I toast buns and top them with the chicken, Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce, and tomato to create a small version of the classic chicken sandwich. It all comes together quickly, and I end up with delicious, bite-size sandwiches that everyone always loves.

Recipe FAQ

How do you grill chicken without drying it out?

The best way to keep your chicken moist while grilling it is to soak it for 30 minutes in a simple brine of ¼ cup kosher salt and 4 cups of water.

Can you just throw chicken on the grill?

You can, but you have to be more careful with it. If your chicken hasn’t been soaked in a brine, you can still cook it on the grill, but it’s important to monitor the heat to prevent the chicken from drying out.

When is grilled chicken done?

The best way to tell if your grilled chicken is done is to use a meat thermometer. If the temperature registered 165 degrees, then the chicken is done.

What is the best way to cook chicken breasts to keep them moist?

You can cook it in a skillet on medium-high heat to get a nice sear that locks in the juices while the chicken cooks through. You can also sear the chicken on high heat first, then bake it at 350 until the internal temperature is 165 degrees. Finally, grilling on a hot grill will produce moist chicken. In all cases, let your chicken rest at least 10 minutes so the juices can redistribute throughout the meat.

How long will these grilled chicken sliders last in the fridge?

The meat will last for up to 3 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

Store the cooked chicken pieces for up to 3 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container. For longer storage, freeze them for up to 3 months in an airtight, freezer-safe container.

To reheat, place the chicken in a baking dish along with just enough water to cover the bottom of the dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes until heated through. Then, toast your buns and construct your sandwiches.
