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!
Buffalo Chicken Sliders
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.
Remember to keep the lid on the slow cooker while they are cooking. I know it’s tempting to want to check and see how things are going, but don’t! You lose heat that way and it takes even longer to cook. Patience is the key.
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.
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Sliders
The first thing you’ll need to do is add the chicken breasts to your slow cooker and then pour over 1/2 cup of wing sauce and onions. Cover and cook on low or high, your choice.
Once the chicken is cooked, take it out of the slow cooker. It will be very tender. Shred the chicken with two forks or in a stand mixer.
Remember to take 1/4 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker. You’ll need this for the recipe. You can discard the rest of the liquid.
Put the shredded chicken back in the slow cooker and add the 1/4 cup of reserved liquid and the remaining wing sauce. Give it a good stir to make sure the chicken is coated completely.
To serve, place about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of chicken on each slider bun. Top with more wing sauce and Ranch dressing.
Serve up some coleslaw with your sliders. Yum!

Can Your Freeze Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Yes, you can freeze them! I often freeze buns and chicken. I would freeze them separately and then assemble once you’ve thawed them out.
