Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders

I can’t get enough Buffalo Chicken these days. I picked up a big bottle of Frank’s Wing Sauce and have been using it in lots of recipes. I made Buffalo Chicken Pizza using it as the sauce. So tasty! This recipe for Buffalo Chicken Sliders is just as good and it’s even easier to make. The slow cooker does most of the hard work!

The chicken breasts are covered in Frank’s Wing Sauce and onions in the slow cooker. And like anything you make in the slow cooker, the flavour permeates deep down so that every bite lights up your taste buds.

The only thing that could make these sliders better is if they were on King’s Hawaiian buns! I tried them at Blogher 2011 in San Diego and have been craving them since. I wish they had them in Canada.

The ranch dressing complements the spice of the wing sauce. I like Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, but I’ll buy others if they are on sale. Renee’s and Kraft are other ones that we often use.
