Heat oil and butter in a pan and add in your chicken thighs. Then add in fajita seasoning spice mix and paprika powder. Cook on medium heat for 10 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.
Add in the peppers. Stir well for 5 mins. Set aside.
Using a bread knife, cut the savoury butter rolls in half, separating the top and bottom.
Add Canadian mozzarella cheese slices and chicken filling on the bottom.
Top with the slices of cheddar or havarti cheese.
Add the top part of the bread over the filling and cheese.
Brush the top with some melted butter (optional).
Add some chopped parsley.
Cover the buns with foil and bake for 15 mins or until the cheese has melted. Alternatively if you don’t want to bake you can heat them in the microwave for a minute or two.
Leftovers from this easy dinner recipe might taste even better as the next day’s lunch! Simply reheat the the sliders in the oven, or keep any extra chicken preparation in the fridge and heat up the buns as needed.
