Spicy and hot, these mouth-watering Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders are a hit with my family. Cook time is hands-off in the slow-cooker, which makes it a fantastic dinner option for busy nights.
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Nothing works better or me during the week with our busy schedules than cooking with a slow cooker. Most notably, I like the one-pot-leave-it-and-forget-it feature of a slow-cooker.
I shared my Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins with you a few weeks ago. Today I made the chicken portion of the recipe with slightly different ingredients. You could use that chicken seasoning recipe in sliders or this slider recipe on Potato Skins. See how that works? Easy Peasy!
If you’re a sports fan, these sliders would be great for tailgating or game-watching or party going. Heck, they’d be good any time any place!
For these sandwiches, I found great ciabatta rolls that were slider size at the store. You could use regular size rolls and white or whole wheat would be great as well.
I like to use Ranch dressing sometimes instead of blue cheese, so that’s another option for you. Do you like blue cheese? I love it, but sometimes I like a change.
I used Frank’s RedHot sauce on the chicken in this recipe, it’s really spicy and is lower in calories than traditional buffalo sauce.
To kick it up a little, I added bacon to my sandwich because, well, bacon makes everything better. Do you agree? Of course, make the recipe your own, if you love bacon add extra, not a fan then skip it.

Yum! You knocked it out of the park with this one. Absolutely delicious!
Being able to make this in the slow cooker makes dinner so easy (and the house smell great) without heating up the kitchen – thanks for the easy, tasty recipe!
OMG. I am making this recipe right now and just noticed that I grabbed the Franks Hot sauce not franks BBQ sauce! Will it make a big difference?? It already started cooking so I hope so!
You may just want to use less of the hot sauce. You could also mix the hot sauce with a little ketchup to dilute the heat. But, it will still be good, I love spicy food.
