  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • Saucepan


  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 12 slices Fresh Mozzarella cheese
  • 26 ounces marinara sauce 1 jar, (or use homemade recipe below)
  • 12 slider rolls

Homemade Marinara Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 14 ounces crushed tomatoes 1 can
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine chicken, herbs, parsley, Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs. Mix by hand until blended. Shape chicken mixture into 12 patties. Place on lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, turning once. Top each slider with mozzarella slice and bake an additional 3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and melted.
  • When sliders are ready and cheese has melted, place one slider on each roll. Divide marinara sauce among each slider (if using homemade sauce, see instructions below). If desired, sprinkle fresh basil over sliders just before serving.

Homemade Marinara Sauce

  • Heat saucepan over medium heat. Heat oil, add garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in pepper flakes and dried basil. Heat an additional minute. Reduce heat and stir in crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. Add salt, then continue to heat on low until warm.
