Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Oh my goodness. I made a batch of these slow cooker Buffalo chicken sliders and watched them disappear lickity-split. All of my favorite flavors in a single bite: chickeny Buffalo wing sauce, Ranch dressing, and cheese.

This might just be the most perfect recipe for a crowd. It can’t get any easier, just toss all of the ingredients for the filling into the slow cooker and a few hours later, you’ve got crazy good sliders.

Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time6 hrs 30 mins
Total Time6 hrs 35 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 12oz bottle Frank's Wing Sauce
  • 1 1oz package Ranch Dressing Mix (or use 1 tablespoon homemade)
  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breast
  • 12 slider buns
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or substitute blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/4 cup more or less Ranch salad dressing

Instructions

  • Pour wing sauce and dressing mix into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into a slow cooker set on low.
  • Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 6 hours until fall-apart tender. If the chicken breasts are too large to be submerged in the sauce, flip them over halfway thru the cooking time.
  • Remove breasts to a cutting board and shred or chop as desired. Return to the slow cooker and cook another 30 minutes.
  • Brown buns if desired.
  • Top buns with meat and cheese and place under broiler for just enough time to lightly melt the cheese.
  • Drizzle with a little salad dressing and serve. I also added a teaspoon or so of the sauce from the slow cooker.
