How to make shredded chicken parmesan sliders

I get my chicken from ButcherBox. They deliver the healthiest, highest quality meat while causing as little harm as they can to the environment.
Add marinara sauce on top of the chicken.
Cook for 4 hours on high and shred chicken. Combine with the sauce.
Cut open 12 slider rolls and place them in a greased 9x13 casserole pan. Try to slice the sliders so that the tops are taken off but they are still attached to each other on the bottom.
Spread the shredded, saucy chicken onto the halves of the slider rolls.
Spread shredded mozzarella cheese over the chicken.
Place the top of the buns over the mozzarella. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a mix of garlic powder, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until the cheese has melted and tops have started to brown.
Slice the chicken parmesan sliders with shredded chicken and serve.
