SHREDDED BUFFALO CHICKEN SANDWICHES (SLOW COOKER) — Slow cooked, shredded chicken in a spicy Buffalo sauce, served on sandwich buns with Ranch dressing.
Friends, these Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches are easily the most well received meal I’ve served up in recent memory. Of course, I do have some serious Buffalo chicken fanatics at my house, but they weren’t the only ones who loved these tasty, slow cooker sandwiches.
My husband and kids all like spicy food, but still, they couldn’t stop raving about these sandwiches. And now that football season is upon us, I have to say, these would be perfect game day eats.
The best part–this may also be the easiest meal I’ve served up in recent memory. Honestly, aside from turning on the slow cooker, and later, the broiler, I barely had to lift a finger to get this meal on the table.
Made these as sliders for a football themed family dinner while we watched the game and my family LOVED them! I’m making them again for dinner tonight. Thanks so much for this recipe! ~ Jen
Somehow, that made these sandwiches taste even better! Everyone cleaned their plates and went back for seconds. This meal was an especially big hit with my hungry teenagers.
You can top these sandwiches with either blue cheese or Ranch dressing. I usually serve both on the side, since we do have some opinions around here about which goes better with Buffalo sauce.
And of course, carrot and celery sticks are always good to serve alongside any kind of Buffalo chicken inspired meal.
Granted, we have some opinions around here about carrots and celery too. But one thing we all agreed on–these Buffalo chicken sandwiches were awesome!
