SLOW COOKER BUFFALO CHICKEN

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken was one of my top choices. Slow-cooked chicken is rich, tender, spicy, tangy and rich. There are many ways to use it. Sandwiches, dips, salads, pizza, and more. Below is a complete list of making this delicious shredded buffalo chicken. This is something I guarantee you will want to make again and again during football season and holidays.

What is BUFFALO SAUCE?

Buffalo Sauce, an American classic, is a mixture of butter and hot sauce, which creates a rich, tangy and spicy sauce that can be used to coat chicken. We’ve added ranch seasoning to this slow cooker buffalo chicken. This is a delicious combination of buttermilk powder and herbs. Ranch seasoning gives the sauce a big burst in flavour and makes it even creamier. This sauce is simply divine!

HOW TO USE HOT SAUCE

Buffalo sauce is typically made with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. However, you can substitute any vinegar-based cayenne-flavoured hot sauce to make this recipe. It was delicious!

CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE RANG MIX?

Ranch seasoning is a great addition to this sauce. I recommend using it as often as possible. You can use one packet of ranch seasoning powder if you don’t own the ingredients to make it yourself. You can also use your herbs or spices, but not the buttermilk powder. This will still taste great, though slightly less rich.

  • For a buffalo chicken wrap or sandwich: tortilla or bun, coleslaw or pickles, ranch dressing
