Servings: Makes 12 sliders


  • 1 package (12 count) slider buns
  • 2/3 cup pesto (divided)

  2. Mix the shredded chicken and the remaining pesto in a medium bowl to combine. Evenly layer over the bottom buns and top with mozzarella. Finish with the top halves of the buns.
  3. Whisk together the reserved pesto, butter and garlic powder. Brush the mixture evenly over the tops of the buns.
  4. Cover the pan tightly with foil. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
