Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches Recipe

I am the buffalo sauce lover in our family, but I think my husband ended up liking these sandwiches more than I did!  This is probably the easiest meal I have ever made.  This chicken would also be amazing on tacos, nachos, quesadillas or just about anything!

    I was on Pinterest and this happened to show up under Food & Drink and my boyfriend jumped out of his chair, pointed at it on the screen and nearly demanded I make it soon. It looks SO good. We're buffalo chicken freaks around here. Love that it goes in the slow cooker! And I'm excited about that nacho idea for this... yum!

    Just started a batch of this and modified because I accidentally bought regular hot sauce. Original flavor says it's on the average heat level, but I still wasn't going to use the while thing. I used half and a can of mild enchilada sauce because that's what I had on hand....I'll let you know in 6-8 hours. :)

    We've made this recipe many times now with some changes. The first time we used the Frank's Wing Sauce and it was way too salty. Next time we used Frank's original. When we looked at the label we noticed Frank's Wing Sauce had 400+mg of sodium compared to Original that was 190mg. That's a big difference. Also deleted the ranch packet. Way too salty. We added in a dash of vinegar, a can of beer, and some red pepper flakes. We cook on low for 6-7 hours, shred it, add some butter and a little bit more hot sauce and cook on low for another hour. Cibata rolls toasted with some melted mozzarella with some ranch dressing. Amazing sandwich!

    I was scrolling through your recipes and telling my husband what slow cooker ones we could try. He really liked this one and we were excited to try it. We followed the recipe exactly. Well, it was hot, VERY HOT. Too hot. So we had to add sugar and sour cream (I won't say how much of both because it's a lot) and it finally made the buffalo chicken eatable. My hubby and I love hot, spicy food, but I'd say don't add the whole bottle of Frank's if you want your kiddos to eat this. Good recipe, easy, but make your own modifications!

    Made it in the Instant Pot instead. 35 Min with frozen chicken breasts. I wasn’t sure of the time but went by other recipies. Didn’t have Franks but used Sweet Baby Rays Buffalo Sauce. It’s spicy but so easy. May adjust amount of sauce slightly.
