It has become one of our favorite quick weeknight meals! You can make it with fresh or frozen chicken, and I use Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners in my crockpot for easy cleanup. If you hate cleaning your crockpot, then you MUST try these. They are made with a special heat-resistant material that will hold the heaviest of ingredients without puncturing. They are also BPA-free in case that is something you worry about.

This crockpot buffalo chicken recipe uses only 3 ingredients to start so it’s less than 5 minutes to throw in the crock pot on a busy morning.

I have tried many buffalo wing sauces, and my favorite for making crockpot buffalo chicken is Moores Wing Sauce it’s tangy with just the right amount of heat and not overly salty and it’s also gluten-free. Once the shredded buffalo chicken is ready I put it on a hoagie or slider roll and like to top it with a blue cheese schmear and red onions. If you don’t like blue cheese you can also use your favorite ranch dressing. You may want to spoon some extra juice on so when you eat it you will feel that goodness dripping down your chin and trust me you just won’t care! I swear you won’t be able to eat just one!

    This looks so good. Love buffalo chicken wings but don't eat very often since it's so high in calories. I'll use lower calorie Ranch dressing and don't think it will hurt the flavor too much. thanks for sharing, looks so good. Haven't seen you in a while, and yy fingers are crossed that you'll back and share at Sunday's Best Party tonight. Miss ya!
