Sean loves it, too.  And for good reason: It’s spicy and delicious!Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken | A Nerd Cooks

This is an A Nerd Cooks original recipe.  Since I’m updating this post, the original blog post can be found here.

You’ll need (serves 4-6):

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 12 oz. hot sauce (I use Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 packet Ranch seasoning
  • 2 tbs butter
  • shredded cheddar, Ranch dressing, taco shells/tortillas, baked potatoes (optional)

Place the chicken breasts in a 4 quart slow cooker.  Salt and pepper the chicken.

In a medium bowl, combine the hot sauce, mustard, and Ranch seasoning.  Pour it over the chicken.

Set the slow cooker to high, and cook for 4 hours.

After 4 hours, remove the chicken to a plate and shred it.  Add the butter to the crock pot and stir so that it melts into the sauce.  Add the chicken to the crock pot again and stir to coat with the sauce.

Serve immediately or let it hang out in the crock pot on low for another hour.

We like to eat ours taco-style.  But you do you.  Eat it however feels right.  It’s great on a baked potato, or on its own as well.  However you choose to eat it, let me recommend a little drizzle of Ranch dressing to temper the heat.

  1. Hi Lauren

    I’ll have to try this. I keep forgetting to tell you that I made the sauerkraut with the celery soup, etc, and I loved it.


  2. Whaaaat? This looks so good! I love the taco idea. Scott and I often put it in quesadillas, or my personal favorite, on top of eggs. Can’t wait to try this variation!
