I LOVE Hawaiian Buns. They are so sweet. But you can use whatever type of slider bun you prefer.

The same goes for the cheese. I used Cheddar as I had some on hand but you can use whatever kind you want!

As far as the BBQ Sauce is concerned, you can use whatever you have on hand or prefer with chicken. I prefer a homemade BBQ Sauce.

Don’t care for Red Onions, use some Yellow or White Onions.
