  • Choose Your Buns: Select slider buns of your choice. Brioche buns add a touch of sweetness, while potato buns offer a soft and pillowy texture.

  • Layering Magic: Place a piece of the crispy Buffalo chicken on the bottom half of each slider bun. Add any additional toppings you desire, such as lettuce and pickles.
  • Drizzle or Dip: For an extra burst of Buffalo flavor, drizzle a bit more sauce on top of the chicken or serve some on the side for dipping.
  • Top it Off: Cap off your sliders with the remaining bun halves, creating a perfect bite-sized sandwich.

Can you cook the chicken in the air fryer?

You can cook the chicken in the air fryer. Simply place the chicken in a single layer in the air fryer and cook on high for 10 minutes.
