Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

This Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is one of my favorite EASY weeknight recipes. I’m a girl that LOVES Buffalo Chicken. I love Buffalo Chicken Dip, Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas, Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites, Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, and basically any with Buffalo Sauce (Like Buffalo Shrimp!). When I decided to make slow cooker Buffalo Chicken, I was really hooked! So easy and tasty!

Somehow Crockpot Buffalo Chicken always makes me think of tailgating. I’m a Missouri girl, raised in Kansas City and Kirksville, and currently living in St. Louis. I spent my youth going to Mizzou basketball and football games, and getting in free to Royals games after the 7th inning. I love my sports teams; the Royals, Chiefs, and MIZZOU; deeply and unconditionally. And that my friends, says A LOT. Most years are spent crying into my pillow as each team somehow disappoints.

The Royals went 29 years without making the playoffs. Mizzou breaks my heart one way or another every time they take the field. But that doesn’t stop the love of the game. And most importantly…the love of TAILGATING!!

Today we are going to talk about my favorite tailgating sandwich, Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with Ranch Pickles. Buckle up you guys.

Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Buffalo Chicken just goes hand in hand with tailgating. Buffalo Chicken Dip was one of the first things I learned to cook (I guess that counts as cooking?) and since that glorious day I’ve made it hundreds of times. If there is a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich listed on a menu, you better believe I’m ordering it. But I don’t want to just enjoy it when we are out to eat, I want to enjoy it tailgating at home too!!

To make this slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwich, all you need is a slow cooker, some fried pickles, and good quality bread. You’ll feel like you’re in your favorite restaurant watching your favorite team win on game day. Or in my case, most likely you’ll be watching them lose. But you get the idea.

Sure, a fried Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is good, but I’m willing to say a Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is that much better.

There’s just something amazing about Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken. I love that you can set it and forget it, and it results in LOTS of sauce coating every piece of chicken. It’s kind of like sloppy joe meets pulled chicken meets spicy game day. So much goodness to go around with this slow cooker meal.
