Buffalo Chicken Sliders Recipe – Make This Delicious Dinner TONIGHT!
My hubby has a wee bit of an addiction to Buffalo Chicken Dip, so when I decided to try these Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sliders I knew he'd go nuts for them! I was right and now they are on a regular rotation at our house. 🙂
Here’s a quick warning though: This buffalo chicken sliders recipe is just a wee bit on the spicy side (obviously with the buffalo wing sauce!), so if you tend to shy away from spicy foods try out these yummy-slow-cooker-not-spicy-at-all barbecue sandwiches. You can also control the spicy buffalo flavor by reducing the amount of sauce a bit, or even trying another sauce that you enjoy.
How to make Buffalo Chicken Sliders:
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders are so incredibly easy to make. You basically throw all of the ingredients into the crockpot and let your crockpot (AKA Mrs. Potts) do ALL the work. You'll simply add chicken breasts, Frank's hot sauce (because it's THE best) and a package of dry ranch dressing mix (you can mix the ranch and the buffalo sauce together).
To pinch those pennies and make it a wee bit healthier with the dry ranch packets, this homemade ranch seasoning is a great option. You could also add some garlic powder or other seasonings you enjoy.
When the chicken is done cooking (about 4 – 6 hours on low), you can just shred it right up in the slow cooker.
You'll then top the slider buns with the shredded buffalo chicken and give it a drizzle of ranch or blue cheese dressing to get that delicious chicken ranch flavor. You could even add a bit of melted butter over your chicken mixture. Yum!
If you would like to spice it up a little more, instead of dinner rolls, you could try using hawaiian rolls. Or maybe the top bun one and the bottom the other. Either way these would be the perfect treat for game day!
