Crispy Baked Chicken Sliders

From the department of “Everything is Cuter in Mini Size” I present these little crispy baked chicken sliders that take less than 40 minutes to make and satisfy a craving for a certain fast food chicken sandwich that you can’t get on Sundays. Although, instead of fried the chicken is breaded and baked and instead of a normal-sized sandwich they’re served up slider-style which is decidedly better because like I mentioned, everything is cuter when it’s served up itty-bitty.

These chicken sliders fit right in at holiday parties and game-day get-togethers.

Some Ingredients You’ll Need

  • I borrowed from my breaded baked chicken recipe, which is my favorite way to make crispy baked chicken. But instead of baking the breaded chicken in whole pieces I first cut the boneless, skinless chicken breasts to fit slider buns.
  • Instead of dredging the chicken with beaten egg and flour, I like to coat the pieces with a combination of mustard and mayonnaise before tossing them with panko breadcrumbs and regular dried breadcrumbs. The mayo and mustard not only helps the breadcrumbs stick to the chicken, but they also add a lot of flavor to the cooked chicken.
  • I like to cook the chicken on a baking rack with a baking sheet. This allows the hot air to circulate around the chicken pieces so the bottom of the chicken is as crispy as the top. The chicken only needs about 20 minutes to cook in a 400°F oven.
  • To assemble the chicken sliders it’s as simple as smearing some mayo on the slider buns, topping each with a piece of breaded chicken followed by a few pickle slices. Gather a few friends for some holiday cheer and pass these little bites around for the best experience.

Happy slider-making!

For the Chicken

  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup dried plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  •  1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

For the Sliders

  • 12 slider buns
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 24 pickle slices


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a baking rack on a large sheet pan and set it aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise and mustard. In a separate medium bowl, combine the panko, dried breadcrumbs, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Cut the chicken into twelve pieces. They should be approximately the same size as your slider buns. Place the cut chicken into the bowl with the mayonnaise and mustard and toss it to coat it evenly. Transfer the coated chicken pieces to the bowl with the breadcrumbs and toss them until they are evenly coated.
  4. Place the chicken pieces on the baking rack with the sheet pan. Bake the chicken for approximately 20 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
