Ingredients

  • 18 slider buns cut in half crosswise
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works great!)
  • 11 ounces Buitoni Pesto with Basil
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 15 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup mayo optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. Arrange the bottom halves of the slider buns side by side in the pan. In a small bowl stir together melted butter and 2 tablespoons of the pesto and set aside.
  • Spread mayo on the bottom sliders buns (optional) then layer evenly with shredded chicken, pesto, mozzarella slices, and finish with top halves of the buns. Brush pesto-butter mixture over the tops of the sliders.
  • Bake for 10 minutes uncovered, then cover with foil and continue to bake 10-15 more minutes until cheesy is melted. Serve warm.
