1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup minced garlic
1 package King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Slider Buns
3 cups vegetable oil

1 1/4 cups marinara sauce
9 breaded chicken tenders, cooked crispy
5 slices fresh mozzarella
5 slices provolone cheese
9 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

In a small saucepot over medium heat, melt butter and add minced garlic. Cook 3-4 minutes until garlic softens but does not brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
Separate pretzel slider buns and brush inside halves with melted garlic butter. Toast rolls on griddle until golden brown; flip and slightly toast outside of rolls. Set aside.
In a 4-quart saucepot with a thermometer, heat oil to 350 F. Fry pepperoni until bubbles start to slow. Carefully remove from oil and place on a plate with a paper towel.
In a small saucepot, heat marinara sauce. Place 1 tablespoon of sauce on the bottom halves of slider buns.
On a lined sheet pan, place one chicken tender on each slider bun. Place 1 tablespoon marinara sauce on top of each tender followed by half slice mozzarella then half slice provolone. Top each slider with 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan. Place baking sheet in broiler and melt the cheese.
Top cheese with 1 tablespoon crispy pepperoni on each slider.
Top sliders with other halves of toasted slider buns. Brush tops with garlic butter and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Use bamboo picks to secure.
