Ingredients

  • 12 slider rolls I used King's Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cooked chicken use cooked leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken, or see note below*
  • 24 baby spinach leaves
  • 12 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice each roll open and place bottom halves on the baking sheet; set tops aside.
  • Spread some BBQ sauce on bottom half of each roll. Top each with cooked chicken, two spinach leaves, and a slice of cheddar. Place top buns on sandwiches.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, until cheese melts and sandwiches are warmed through. Rub tops of sandwiches with butter so that it melts over top buns, if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

*To quickly and easily cook chicken breasts (you will need just one large or two small chicken breasts for this recipe): Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken in the hot skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook on the first side until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Flip chicken and cook on the second side for 1 minute. Pour in enough water to come about halfway up the sides of the chicken and cover the pan. Continue cooking until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. (Cooking time will depend on the size of your chicken breasts.) Transfer chicken to a plate or cutting board to cool before slicing or shredding.
