Looking for an easy and delicious Super Bowl party meal? This tasty slow cooker shredded buffalo chicken is a simple set-it-and-forget-about-it meal that’ll have your crowd cheering for more! 😉 I served up mine with soft mini rolls and bleu cheese coleslaw for additional flavor and crunch.
Slow Cooker Shredded Buffalo Chicken
*Makes around 20 sliders or 7 full size sandwiches
(Adapted from Allrecipes.com)
4 -5 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (mine were frozen)
1 (12 ounce) bottle buffalo wing sauce, divided
1/2 (1 ounce) package dry ranch salad dressing mix (or try this recipe to make your own mix if desired)
2 tablespoons butter
2 packs of soft rolls like Kings Hawaiian brand rolls
(Optional: Try serving with coleslaw mix and bleu cheese dressing, fresh bleu cheese, or ranch dressing.)
Place the chicken breasts into a slow cooker, and pour in 3/4 of the wing sauce and the ranch dressing mix. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.
Once the chicken has cooked, drain liquid if any, add the butter, the rest of the buffalo sauce, and shred the meat finely with two forks.
Serve with rolls and coleslaw with blue cheese or ranch dressing if desired.
Not eating carbs? Try serving lettuce wrap style with large pieces of iceberg lettuce. Either way you decide to serve this chicken, it makes for great football watching food!! Enjoy 🙂
