Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders
I’ve always been a lover of spicy food and buffalo chick has been a favorite of mine. These Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders are so tender and full of flavor. They make the perfect game day recipe and perfect for a big crowd.
I love hosting the super bowl each year. I get to make lots of junk food and hang out with my friends. I truthfully don’t do a lot of football watching but I still have a good time. Each year I try and think of something to be the “main” dish. At the same time, I don’t want it to be something big and filling because we have a lot to snack one.
Sliders are the perfect combo! I feel like I have something besides snacks but it’s also not so much food that we can’t try everything else. Plus these Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders are so easy to make. I just toss everything in the slow cooker then once the chicken is really tender I use a fork to shred it. Everyone can use a spoon to add some to a roll and serve it with cheese or dressing on top. I usually serve a not so spicy slider also like these Italian sliders.
Making Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders:
If you aren’t a big spicy fan like I am you can still enjoy these Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders. Just adjust the measurements some. Start small and add and taste as you go. I added 1 cup of hot sauce and 1/3 cup of dressing. If you think it will be to spicy start with 1/2 cup of hot sauce, taste it, then just add a tablespoon or two more until you get it to the right amount. You can also add more dressing in to tone the spice down. I love blue cheese with buffalo chicken, it’s like peanut butter and jelly in my book. I know a lot of people don’t so you could top your sliders with any shredded cheese or even a tablespoon of ranch dressing would work.
Step one: Place chicken breast in the slow cooker. In a small mixing bowl whisk together wing sauce, garlic powder, and dressing. Pour over chicken in the slow cooker.
Step two: Cook until chicken is tender and can be shredded with a fork.
Step three: Shred chicken and serve on a slider bun topped with blue cheese crumbles.
