Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Sliders Recipe

Rate This Recipe

These crockpot buffalo chicken sliders feature layers of spicy pulled buffalo chicken and creamy cheese are sandwiched between sweet rolls and then topped with a ranch butter. YES, I went there. Everyone (even the kids!) loved this buffalo chicken sliders recipe that’s kept on the mild side so the whole family can enjoy them (but still has a ton of flavor!), but feel free to add an extra drizzle of buffalo sauce if you like the heat. Just like my chicken Parmesan sliders, these prep in just 10 minutes and they’re ready to eat in 30 minutes. Serve these up on game day for an appetizer or main dish.

How to Serve Buffalo Chicken Ranch Sliders to the Whole Family

I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉

I kept these on the mild side so that the kiddos could enjoy them, too. Feel free to adjust the buffalo wing sauce according to your families preferences.

And as always, be sure to serve the sliders along with a few items they know they will eat, like fruit. If having the sandwich will be too much, you could also serve the components separately for them.
