Buffalo Chicken Sliders

See more Slow Cooker recipes HERE.

It's day three of our 25 Days of Slow Cooking series and Mrs. Potts is keeping busy! These Slow Cooked Buffalo Chicken Sliders are one of those super easy throw it in the pot meals that you can't mess up, and always get great reviews.   


I was completely scared off the first time I made these after reading through the ingredients, however since our pantry always has six bottles of Frank's Hot Sauce (because my hubby is addicted to  Buffalo Chicken Dip), I decided to try them out a few years ago, and now they're on our regular dinner rotation.  Here’s a quick warning though:  this recipe is just a wee bit on the spicy side (obviously!), so if you tend to shy away from spicy foods try out these yummy-slow-cooker-not-spicy-at-all barbecue sandwiches. 😉

To pinch those pennies on dry ranch packets, we use this homemade mix.

  1. hey… i was wondering…. have you ever made your own ranch dressing or have a recipe to suggest?? we are trying to go all whole foods and no prepackaged things 🙂 TIA

  2. You can easily omit the ranch all together. I put boneless chicken and just the frank’s in my crockpot (trying to save calories!). It doesn’t look very saucy but it tastes very buffalo-y and is a lot less messy!

  3. Hey there! I’m trying to make these for a wedding shower for about 25 people. I’ve made it before for my husband and I but a much smaller amount for just the 2 of us. Do you have any idea of how many sliders this makes? I’m thinking 6 chicken breasts (doubling the recipe) may do it.

    • Hmmmm… I really don’t have any idea, but I’m afraid 6 chicken breasts won’t be enough? I think I’d go with 8 (of course, if you’re going to have appetizers and other dishes, 6 may be fine.) I wish I had an exact amount but would be afraid to tell you incorrectly!

      On second thought…. you could always make extra and then just freeze whatever you have leftover? I’m always worried about not having enough… Hope that helps! 🙂

    Will be trying this tomorrow! Sounds really REALLY easy!

  5. My kids love chicken wing dip and this sounds like it could turn our love of the dip into a sandwich. Love the idea and can’t wait to try it!

  6. Pinterest tip….shred chicken in your Kitchen Aid….haven't tried this yet but plan to soon 🙂

  7. Can the chicken breasts be frozen or do they need to be thawed before placing them in the crockpot?
