  • Cook Time: 7 mins
  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 24 sliders 1x
  • Category: Sandwich
  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: American




  • 6 cups shredded chicken, cooked (I used a rotisserie chicken)
  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 small onion, diced

FOR THE SAUCE: (Skip if Using Store-Bought Buffalo Sauce)

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 2 TBS white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 1/2 -1 tsp arrow root powder or corn starch


  • 24 mini whole wheat slider buns
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Powder


  1. Set oven to broil. Slice each slider bun in half (if not pre-sliced). Gently brush a bit of olive oil onto the top of each half. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Broil in oven for 1-2 minutes or until bread is golden and toasted. Watch closely, they will burn quickly. Set toasted buns aside.
  2. Place shredded chicken, celery, and tomatoes into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. SKIP THIS STEP IF USING STORE-BOUGHT BUFFALO SAUCE: In a medium sauce pan over medium low heat, combine butter, hot sauce, vinegar, soy, lemon juice, garlic powder and celery salt. Stir continuously until butter is completely melted. Add arrowroot powder/corn starch (to thicken). Start with 1/2 tsp and add more until desired constancy is reached. It will not thicken immediately. When sauce thickens, remove sauce from heat.
  4. Combine sauce with chicken, celery and tomatoes. Stir until chicken is completely coated with sauce.
  5. Place desired amount of chicken salad on the bottom slice of each toasted slider bun, add extra sauce if desired and then place the top onto the sandwich.


  • Brushing a little bit of olive oil onto the tops and bottoms of the slider rolls and broiling them in the oven for 1-2 minutes until they toast up is a nice addition. That said.. if you don't have time for that, no worries, it will still be delicious.
  • I used an organic rotisserie chicken, but if your grocery store is anything like mine... you can't count on one being available when you need it. If you don't have a rotisseie chicken or just don't want to go to the store, you can use chicken breast. Just heat the oven to 350 degrees, season chicken with salt/pepper and garlic powder, and then bake for about 30 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Use 2 forks to shred the cooked chicken.
  • My favorite store bought Buffalo Sauce isĀ Steve's PaleoGoods, PaleoChef Buffalo Wing Sauce.
