I can hardly believe that it’s time to start thinking about going back to school. Our school starts in less than a month, and while we’ve had an amazing summer, I think my kids will be ready for a more regular routine! For the first time this year, my girls will be in all-day school which means our after school activities will be pushed to later in the afternoon or the evening. I’m going to need plenty of quick and easy dinner options for busy weeknights and these chicken parmesan sliders will most definitely be on our table!
When I’m shopping for ingredients for quick, easy and affordable meals, I head over to Dollar General. I picked up a bag of Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips in the Dollar General freezer section, they are SO convenient to have on hand for easy meals.
These chicken parmesan sliders start with rolls. I use white pull-apart style dinner rolls. The rolls are layered with shredded mozzarella cheese, cooked Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips, marinara sauce, more cheese (mozzarella and parmesan), and then brushed with herb butter and baked to perfection.
I typically shred my own mozzarella and parmesan cheese for this recipe, but if you’re really pressed for time, grab a bag of any type of Italian-style shredded cheese to make dinner prep go even faster.
What I love most about these chicken parmesan sliders is that they’re such a hearty meal with plenty of protein. Add a side salad and you’ve got a complete dinner!
