Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Buffalo Chicken Sliders

My husband has been on a healthy eating kick lately. We have been trying to eat more chicken and fish, but after a while, it can get a bit boring. I found a basic pulled buffalo chicken slider recipe in a magazine recently and decided to give it a try. It was good, but a little bland. I added a few spices to it, and POW! It was delicious!


4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 1 1/2 lbs)
1/2 cup Hot Sauce (I use Frank's)
2/3 cup Water
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
16 Dinner Sized Potato Rolls (I used Kings Hawaiian)
1 cup Blue Cheese Dressing


Coat slow cooker bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken breasts in a single layer in bottom.

Combine hot sauce with water. Pour over chicken.

Cover and cook on High for 5 hours or Low for 7 hours. Remove chicken to a plate and shred with two forks. (If you have a stand mixer, you can shred chicken while it's still hot by placing it in the mixing bowl and turning the beater on).

Return shredded chicken back to slow cooker. Add paprika and cayenne pepper. Stir.

Heat for an additional 1 hour.

Serve shredded chicken on the bottom halves of rolls and top each with 1 tablespoon of dressing.

    1. I thought they were cute too and would make great party appetizers. Maybe good for the Super Bowl this year?

  2. Spicy and blue cheese. Not for me - but my husband would adore this!

    1. I love the spice, but left the blue cheese off mine. I had one taste of it and asked my husband if it was spoiled. I guess blue cheese dressing is an acquired taste?

  3. This looks like a great summer meal! I bet my hubby would love this :)

  4. I love dumping a can of cream of mushrooms over chicken and nuking it in the microwave for twelve minutes. It's the easiest tasty chicken recipe I know.

    1. I have never tried cooking chicken like that. That sounds like a real winner of a recipe for those of us who are short on time to cook sometimes. Does the chicken get hard or rubbery in the microwave?

  5. These look yummy. We are trying to eat healthy too. :) Btw I do the mushroom chicken thing but I pop it in the oven. It's still a simple a quick recipe using the oven!

  6. YUM! Sounds like a great recipe to try...Pinning!

    Thanks for linking up with my NO RULES Blog Party and Have a Wonderful Weekend Theresa!


  7. Yum! Thanks for sharing. I've been giving my crock pot a break recently, but these look too good to pass up. I even have all the ingredients on hand, so I'll whip up a batch for dinner tonight :)

  8. I just made a slow-cooked buffalo chicken sandwich for our dinner tonight! I like the addition of the spices in yours. I think I might try that next time.

    I would love to invite you to share this recipe at Mom's Test Meal Mondays! Hope you've had a great day!

    1. I would love to! Thank you so much for the invite. Coming to link up now :)

  9. I love buffalo anything (so does my husband!) - these look delicious!

    Stopping by from Scrumptious Sunday!

  10. I made this recipe the day I saw it, and now I finally got around to posting it. You can see how it turned out here:

    Thank you for the awesome recipe! This is definitely one I will make again.

  11. I give you bonus points for using potato rolls. Love them.


Thanks for your comments! I appreciate every one of them :)
