Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
If you like your meals with a little bit of spicy kick then you are going to LOVE these buffalo chicken sandwiches!
The recipe is super simple. Just toss three ingredients (chicken, bottled buffalo wing sauce and some dry ranch dressing mix) in your slow cooker and cook for a few hours until the chicken is done.
Shred the chicken and add some butter (this gives it that yummy buffalo chicken wing flavor and mouthfeel) and serve on buns or rolls.
I like my buffalo chicken wings dipped in ranch dressing. So, I drizzled a little bit of ranch dressing on my sandwich. But you can do blue cheese dressing, blue cheese crumbles or even a nice crispy coleslaw. Or just eat the chicken plain as is.
If you are on a gluten free diet, have no fear. Read your labels on the bottle of buffalo wing sauce (there are plenty of brands that are GF) and ranch dressing mix (or use our Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix recipe) and shop for some GF buns or rolls. Or skip the bread altogether and serve this chicken as a lettuce wrap.
Equipment Needed For Crock-Pot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches Recipe:
Can I Use Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs Instead Of Breasts?
Yes, you can use boneless skinless chicken thighs in this recipe instead of breasts. Just keep in mind that this will change the nutritional information. But the chicken will still be tasty and you do not need to adjust the cooking time.
Can I Use Frozen Chicken In This Buffalo Chicken Recipe?
If you have found yourself with frozen chicken that you didn’t have time to thaw first you can still use them in this recipe. However you will need to cook the recipe a little longer. Usually I start by adding 1 hour to the cooking time when using frozen chicken and then only cook longer if needed.
What Brand Of Buffalo Wing Sauce Do You Recommend?
My go to brand of buffalo wing sauce is Frank’s RedHot Wing Sauce. It has that traditional buffalo chicken wing flavor most of us are used to. However you can use whatever brand of wing sauce you prefer.
This article from Men’s Journal – The 6 Best Buffalo Wing Sauces – ranks Frank’s at #4.
