An Easy Slow Cooker Meal

It’s time to give your favorite buffalo wings an upgrade!  Is there a recipe in the world that isn’t better when you turn it into a slider? (I’m still trying to figure this out!) Sliders are simple, delicious and everyone absolutely loves them! They are a perfect little snack or they can be a meal that feeds a crowd!!

These buffalo chicken sliders are no exception. Take the tangy, spicy flavors you love of buffalo chicken wings, add some delicious ranch seasoning, then serve it up on a soft Hawaiian roll with melty cheese – do I have your attention yet???  And the best part about this recipe is that you make it in a crock pot, so it doesn’t get any easier than this!

What’s In It

These delicious slides are made using just the following 3 ingredients:

  1. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  2. Buffalo sauce (My favorite is Frank’s Buffalo Sauce)
  3. A packet of Ranch dressing mix

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Not only do these Buffalo Chicken sliders taste amazing, they happen to be one of the EASIEST recipes you will ever make! Toss 3 ingredients into your crock pot and you’re good to go! This meal is complete perfection!

4 chicken breasts cooking in a crock pot with buffalo sauce

Compile – Place 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts on the bottom of your crock pot.  You can totally put them in frozen if you don’t have them thawed. Pour a bottle of buffalo sauce over the chicken breasts and then sprinkle a packet of ranch dressing mix on top.

Cook – Give everything a good mix and then cook it on low heat for about 6-7 hours.

Shred – About a half an hour before you’re ready to serve the sliders you’ll want to shred the chicken.  You can use two forks to shred the chicken but my forearms get sore pretty quickly.  I’ve recently began using meat claws to shred chicken and it’s been a game changer.  Return the chicken back to the crock pot, mix everything together and then continue cooking until you’re ready to serve.

Serve – Add 2-3 spoonfuls of the shredded chicken to each bun and top with some cheese. I usually use a slice of cheddar, but Bleu Cheese Crumbles taste fantastic too! Serve each slider with a side of ranch dressing and some veggie sticks!

Sides – Some of my favorite side dishes to serve with these buffalo chicken sliders are a batch of Crispy Sweet Potato Fries, Homemade Coleslaw or a Spinach Salad.
