Zesty flavors abound in this dish thanks to the blend of Cajun spices (like paprika and cayenne pepper) we’re using to coat our chicken and spice the honey butter that’s slathered onto warm dinner rolls. A side of roasted broccoli is topped with two kinds of melty cheese for even more rich flavor.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the relish sauce:

Remove the dough and honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

In a separate bowl, combine the pickle relish and worcestershire sauce

Prepare & bake the rolls:
2 Prepare & bake the rolls:

Lightly oil a sheet pan. Tear the dough into 8 equal-sized pieces. Gently roll each piece into a ball. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Remove from the oven.

Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board.
