Cheesy Chicken Chili Buns

Recently at Blogher Food in Miami I had the pleasure of meeting the Kings Hawaiian folks.  I don’t aways get all goo goo gah ga over a brand, unless it’s a brand I always use, and my family loves.  So I guess you could say I may have been just a weensie bit excited about meeting them. By the way….have you seen this commercial?  It made me laugh out loud, because my kids pretty much just suck these rolls right up!

As you can see!  I just got home from the grocery store, turned around to make this recipe and BAM! Roll suckerupper alert!


Cheesy Chicken Chili Buns

In celebration of meeting the Kings Hawaiian peeps and sucking down a few dozen of their rolls while I was in Miami (I’ve got the tummy roll to prove it!) I’ve come up with this tasty cheesy sandwich that is sure to be a hit at your next potluck or just for an easy delicious lunch or dinner option for your family! (pssst notice the hole in my dish where the missing roll shoulda been?!)


Cheesy Chicken Chili Buns This recipe is a play on this Cilantro Chili Bread, which I might add you need to serve with BBQ ribs at some point this summer….trust me! This sauce is lip smackin’ good let me tell you!  I just used a roaster chicken and shredded the meat, making this recipe super simple.  Everyone in my family loved these sandwiches!

Cheesy Chicken Chili Buns are perfect for sharing!  I used my fingers, but I  have to warn you, you may need to serve them with a fork!

    I realize this is an older post, but by “chili sauce”, do you mean like the sweet Heinz sauce?
    Thank you,
