  1. Make shredded chicken: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the bottom of a large pot, then season them with salt and pepper. Cover the chicken with 1 inch of water.
  2. Place the pot on the stove and bring the water to a gentle boil. Once the liquid is boiling, reduce the heat and let simmer for 8 to 16 minutes, depending upon the size, until chicken reached 165*F. Remove from water and let cool.
  3. Once the chicken is cooled, shred with two forks and set aside.
  4. Make Sliders: Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper. Lightly spray the paper with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Place the bottoms of slider buns in the prepared baking dish.
  6. In a bowl, combine shredded chicken with ½ of the True Made Foods Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce. Mix until completely coated.
  7. Spread chicken equally across the buns. Top with remaining True Made Foods Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce.
  8. Evenly sprinkle mozzarella, red onion, pepper jack cheese, and 1 tablespoon of cilantro across the chicken-topped sliders.
  9. Place the top buns on top of the sliders.
  10. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes.
  11. While baking, melt the butter. Add remaining cilantro and set aside.
  12. Remove foil from the pan. Brush each bun with a butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, for another ten minutes, until tops are golden. Serve immediately.
