Buffalo Chicken Sliders ... In the Crock Pot!

This is seriously the easiest, most delicious recipe for the crock pot! I think we eat these things at least once a week!




Ingredients:
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
1 Bottle Louisiana Wing Sauce
1 Bottle Hot Sauce
1 Packet Dry Ranch Mix
1 Package of Slider Buns
2Tbsp Butter
2Tbsp Minced Garlic



Directions:

Turn your crock pot on low and add your butter and garlic. While the crock pot is heating up, cut your chicken breast into pieces according to the size of your buns. (Ours were on the larger size, so cutting one breast in half worked out perfect for our sliders.) Sprinkle with any seasoning -- I used garlic and onion powder, along with a small amount of garlic salt and pepper. 

Add the entire bottle of Louisiana Wing Sauce, and half the bottle of hot sauce into the crock pot, along with the ranch packet and mix well. Add the chicken, and cook on low for two hours, stirring occasionally.

Generally the chicken is perfect just at two hours, remove from crock pot and serve when ready.




**We have also recently started shredding the chicken once it is done, and drizzling the buffalo sauce mixture directly from the crock pot onto the sandwich with a little bit of ranch dressing .... to die for!

    1. I generally just use 1 LB of chicken -- and depending on their size, I usually cut them in half width wise before placing in the crock pot! :)

  2. SO yummy, thank you! I actually was SO lazy, I didn't get all of this together in time to sit in a crockpot, so I made it on the stove. I had precooked chicken, so everything just went in a deep pan and simmered on low heat for a while. I had never cooked with a Ranch packet before... I'm a believer now!

  5. This was a delicious recipe! Thanks for sharing, I'd never thought of adding the ranch packet. We were out of buns so we put it on tortilla chips and it was delicious and better than the kind from restaurants. What kind of slider buns do you use?

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed it! I'm not quite sure the name brand, but I pick them up in a local bakery, and they make all the difference! :)

  6. I got this recipe from a friend, and we made them over the weekend. They were DELICIOUS! Although, I used just a dollop of Jim Beam Hot Sauce, and these were HOT. Also used a bottle of regular wing sauce, and served on King's Hawaiian hamburger buns. We shredded the chicken, and added cheese and ranch dressing. YUM! (I'm eating the leftovers for lunch today!)

  8. The picture looks like you used cheese. Is that right? If so, what kind did you use?

    1. I think what you may be seeing is the ranch dressing, not cheese! But, we do sometimes add a slice of cheese to the slider, and we generally prefer provolone! :)

    1. Annie, a crock pot is a pot and a slow cooker all in one =) I highly recommend picking one if you can find one that will work in your region.

  13. A crock pot is also called a slow cooker.

  16. do you cook your chicken before hand or just put it in the crock pot raw? I might have missed this when I was reading it! but i really want to try it!

    1. I just put it directly into the crock pot raw .. it is just perfect at two hours! :) Hope you enjoy!

  17. I tried to look through the comments already posted and didn't see my answer so... how hot are these? I've got small kids and don't want to make anything too hot for them

    1. Hi Adi! I have a very low tolerance for hot stuff and I am able to eat these just fine! When you remove the chicken from the crock pot it is not spicy at all, most of the heat comes from the leftover sauce which can be added once shredded :) Hope this helps!

  18. Did you use raw or cooked chicken? 2 hours seems like a short time if raw.

    1. I use raw chicken! I am very picky when it comes to how my chicken is cooked, and I find just at two hours it is perfect!

  19. That is my question as well. Raw or cooked chicken in the crockpot?

  20. I put in frozen chicken, and let it cook all day while I am at work. Basically shreds itself. Super yummy.

  21. Hey I'm gonna try and make this for dinner tomorrow... What kind of sides do you make with this dish?

    1. Hi Analise! We generally do not make sides with it as the sandwiches alone are very filling -- But any sort of lighter side dish such as a salad of some sort would be great! I hope you enjoy!

  22. I made this tonight and I can't taste anything past the garlic! What did I do wrong? I was so excited to try this :( I'm so bummed...

  23. How many servings does this make? Has anyone used more than 1lb?

  24. I just made this for dinner tonight... SO good! But boy-howdy, was it hot! I didn't use a drop of hot sauce (thank goodness!) only the wing sauce. Delicious but spicy. OH, we drizzled blue cheese dressing on ours, too. Thanks for posting!
