Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Recipe

Print Friendly



I love the flavor of buffalo wings and knew that I had to try this recipe . . . it was awesome! It was a fun twist on your traditional lasagna . . . plus it cooks in the slow cooker, which makes it even better! My four-year-old thought that it was a little too "spicy" (aka too hot), but my two-year-old loved it. The flavor is the best part about this meal. If you love buffalo wings, you will LOVE this lasagna.
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Lasagna
Ingredients:
8 ounces lasagna noodles, uncooked
4 cooked chicken breasts, diced
26 ounces pasta sauce
1 cup buffalo wing sauce (we used Frank's sauce- it is so good!)
3 green bell peppers, chopped (you could also use red, yellow, or orange peppers if you want)
15 ounces of ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella and cheddar blend)
1/2 cup bleu cheese crumbles
1/4 cup of water (add at very end) 

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine cooked and diced chicken breast, pasta sauce, and 1 cup of buffalo wing sauce.

Ladle a big spoonful of the sauce into the bottom of your slow cooker. Cover with a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (you will have to break them to get a proper fit).

Add a smear of ricotta cheese to the top of the noodles. Add a layer of chopped bell pepper. Sprinkle on a handful of shredded cheese.

Repeat layers until you run out of ingredients.

Add the bleu cheese crumbles. Put the 1/4 cup of water into your empty pasta sauce jar and shake. Pour the liquid over the top of the entire lasagna.

Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or on high for 2.5-3 hours (if you go any longer than that, the pasta will start to turn mushy). When cooking time is complete, unplug and take off the lid of the crock. Let sit for 20 minutes before serving so that it is easier to scoop out. :)

    This sounds really delicious. How was the texture? I’m always a bit leery of pasta + crockpot because I’m worried it will cook down into textureless-mush. But the flavours sound sooooooo good….

    @Leslie- so the first time I made this, I cooked it WAY too long and the pasta was too soft. The second time, I cooked it on high for about 2 hours and 45 minutes and it was perfect. I am the same as you- I don’t like mushy pasta! :) And yes, the flavor is AMAZING!

    This came out fantastic. I added a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning and used shredded taco cheese. So good and easy.I also made it with two cans of canned chicken. Easy recipe to keep in the pantry for unexpected casserole. You can also throw it in the oven for 45 min instead.
