No, really, they are that good. These babies are made using a creamy, cheesy chicken mixture just like what your mom used to put in Chicken Pillows so that’s kind of cool and then the sauce is that buttery honey mustard sauce that everyone loves so it’s picture perfect.


And mouth watering. And full of calories so probably go ahead and serve with fresh fruits and vegetables so you can feel better about yourself. Heaven knows that kind of balances junk food out, right? No? Still worth it.

  3. I made these last evening for a ladies birthday party. They were a huge hit! I’ll be using this recipe some more!

  4. Could I assembled these and freeze for later?

    • Hi Loretta, unfortunately assembling doesn’t work well in the freezer, however we have frozen the bund separate, made the chicken and stored it separate and then defrosted and assembled on game day. 🙂

  5. 3 stars
    These were good, but kind of thick and rich. The extra sauce poured on after they came out of the oven just made a mess of the sandwich. I will make these again, but put half the sauce mixed in with the chicken and cheese to loosen it and avoid the richness.

  6. Definitely rich! I suggest using small buns for sliders rather than full size. These are much better suited as an appetizer than a meal. They could also use some texture, it all seemed too mushy.

  7. Ooh yummy. My kind of food!
