Ramadan calls for many recipes and unfortunately in most of our houses it includes deep fried foods. That really is a recipe for disaster. Everytime I think, I will make non-fried snacks for iftar, but sadly I end up making samosas, spring rolls etc which brings along loads of oil along with it.

But today’s recipe is a non fried one. It is a little heavy because of the mozzarella cheese but you won’t feel that guilt like how you would feel after eating those fried goodies. These sliders tastes superb too.

What I love the most is that the assembling part is very easy. You don’t have to work separately with each bun. Instead just place the bottom part of the buns in a row in the baking tray, then spread out the chutney, chicken and mozzarella one on top of the other, cover with the other slice of bun and bake. Thats it. Super simple.

  1. It looks so yummy.. Most of ur recipes includes cheese.. I am allergic to cheese.. I can’t try..:(
    Please do post something without cheese.

    1. Hey Aysha! Actually I am allergic to cheese and dairy products too. I know hard to believe What you can do is, just omit the cheese in this. It will taste good that way too. If only you are allergic omit the cheese on one side of the bun. For chicken parcels, cheese is highly optional.

  2. Aslmk, ramadan Mubarak to u n ur family, yesterday I made this and we absolutely loved it.. Jazakallah khair for sharing the recipe.

  3. One qn the bun wer nice and soft yet wen i baked them the top got al a bit hard n crusty.. Not soft like the pics u shared.. May b because I applied butter on the tip aswell..

    1. Walaikumsalaam Alina! Thank you so much for the feedback.
      The top part got crusty and hard maybe because you broiled it for long. Just place in the oven till the cheese melts. But if you feel the top part still gets hard, cover the pan with a foil paper and then bake it. Hope this helped. 🙂

  4. Handsdown!!! This is the best chicken slider I ever had.

    Really yummy with oozing cheese inside, and the chicken filling was “A” oK

    Approved!! Many thanks
