Game Day Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Holy cow folks. Local Taste has done the homework for you and found you THE BEST game day recipe you’ll ever need! It is actually unbelievable that this recipe only requires two ingredients. Thats right- I said TWO! Chicken breasts and hot sauce. Okay, you need water too, but hopefully you have a running faucet and I don’t need to include that as an ingredient.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken is really simple to make. Literally, anyone can do it so you have no excuse not to serve up some home-cooking at your Super Bowl party this weekend. (I’m talking to all you lazy bones out there.)

All you need to do is add boneless chicken breasts to a slow cooker, combine equal parts water and hot sauce (NOT Tabasco or Sriracha) and pour over the chicken until just covered. Turn your crockpot on low for about 6 hours until chicken falls apart easily with a fork. Drain, shred, top with extra hot sauce if desired and serve!

This recipe hails from the Feast & Merriment culinary blog. They recommend setting up a ‘make your own’ Buffalo chicken slider bar with slider rolls, lettuce and blue cheese dressing. Guests will absolutely love this and it gives you, the host, one less thing to do at your own party!

Happy Crockpot Cooking!
