These little sandwiches are so delicious! I honestly didn’t have high hopes when I started making them, I don’t know why, but I wasn’t sure if they would even turn out to be blog worthy. Boy was I wrong, they turned out terrific and I will certainly be making these over and over.
Start with crispy Parmesan crusted chicken pieces to build your sliders. I should have known they would turn out great. How can anything not turn out great when you start with Parmesan crusted chicken?
Put the chicken down on the sweet slider bun. Then top it with a thin slice of good quality deli ham. I like the Boars Head honey glazed maple coat ham from the deli at Publix. I usually get them to shave it as thin as possible. I’m pretty sure the workers hate to see my order because I know it’s a lot of labor to slice a pound of this ham in such thin slices.
The Swiss cheese goes on top of the ham and they go into the oven to get all melty.
Drizzle with my homemade Honey Dijon mustard, or if you are in a hurry, use your favorite honey mustard straight from the store.

Prepare Parmesan Crusted Chicken. Prepare Honey Dijon while chicken is cooking.
Assemble sliders by placing chicken pieces, ham, and half a slice of Swiss cheese onto the bottom bun. Place into oven just long enough to melt cheese. (about 5 minutes)
Add Honey Dijon and serve immediately.
Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound chicken thin and cut into small pieces, (at least 12 pieces). 2 large chicken breasts should give you about 12 small pieces if you pound the chicken thin. If you want larger or thicker pieces than I like, you may need 3 chicken breasts. Set aside.
Combine the bread crumbs, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, add egg and water and whisk together. Line your bowls and baking sheet up so that the chicken can go from the egg to the crumbs and then the baking sheet.
Dip each chicken piece into the egg and then into the crumb mixture. You may need to press the chicken to make sure the crumbs stick. Place all chicken pieces onto baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. (try to evenly distribute the crumb mixture to ensure there is plenty for all pieces, if you have extra you can always add more to the top of the chicken pieces)
Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken pieces. Make sure the largest chicken piece is cooked through before assembling the sliders. Prepare Honey Dijon while chicken is cooking.
Add all ingredients for Honey Dijon in a small bowl and whisk until combined.
