New backpacks, notebooks, and pencil cases. It can only mean one thing — summer is coming to an end and the kids are getting ready to go back to school.

Gone will be relaxed summer days with lax schedules.

Back to school means back to the busy weekday routines of after-school activities, homework, dinner, baths, and early bedtimes.

Saving time on meal prep is a great way to make busy weeknights run smoother, so I am always trying to find new ways to save time in the kitchen.

Hmmm… would I rather spend time in the kitchen cooking dinner or spend more time with my family? The choice is a no-brainer!

Chicken Slider Ingredients

You will start by gathering your ingredients. For this recipe, you will need: Tyson Chicken Nuggets, slider buns, marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.

First, you will cook your Tyson Chicken Nuggets according to the directions on the package (11-13 minutes in the oven, or 2-3 minutes in the microwave).

Next, use a large serrated knife to slice slider buns to separate tops from bottoms. Do not separate the individual buns, just the top half from the bottom half.

Buns in casserole dish with marinara sauce on top

Place the bottom halves of the buns in a casserole dish. I used a 9 x 13 casserole dish, but if you have a slightly smaller one that should work too.

Cover bottom of buns with a layer of marinara sauce.
