Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Sandwiches can become boring fast, especially when it’s just common cold cuts. Change up your game, get out your slow cooker, and transform some plain chicken into these delicious, no fuss crockpot buffalo chicken sandwiches.

This slow cooked sandwich meat is easy to make and perfect for our busy nights.

The chicken comes out cooked to perfection with just the right amount of kick.

Customize your ‘kick’ by adding less buffalo sauce or more, to taste.

Don’t have buffalo wing sauce?

Substitute hot sauce. I heart a flexible recipe!

It really is that easy.

Just dump all the ingredients into the bowl of your crock pot, set it, and forget it.

When the timer’s up- shred the chicken and serve.

You’ll want good bread.

Life is far too short and unpredictable to suffer through bad bread. Trust me on this.

Don’t go sale, don’t go clearance. Go fresh.

We made ours using a nice fresh loaf of sour dough, the slices toasted to perfection.

If you can’t find a quality sourdough, I highly recommend searching out crusty rolls.

Not hamburger rolls, or hot dog buns- but truly crusty buns.

Our family is all about texture, and that’s key for us truly enjoying this recipe.

They will soak up the sauce without becoming soggy. Nobody likes a soggy sandwich.

Good butter goes with good bread.

Turn these into a delicious grilled cheese version by buttering the outsides of both slices, adding some shredded cheddar and/or blue cheese crumbles to the inside, and ‘grilling’ on a hot griddle until the outside are nice and crisped with melted cheese inside.

These sandwiches are perfect for any occasion: a delicious dinner, a game day snack, you name it! 

Not feeling the sandwich thing?

Serve this shredded buffalo chicken with thick crackers for an easy snack-able supper. 

Cutting carbs?

You can swap the bread & crackers out for celery sticks!

Better yet? Dollop some onto a crispy romaine lettuce leaf for a healthy crunch.

Turn them into real lettuce ‘wraps’ by using green leaf lettuce of butter lettuce leaves.
