Are you ready for some football?!?!?!?!
Easy Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders Recipe
- 3 boneless chicken breasts
- 1 cup chicken stock or water
- salt and pepper
- 1 bottle of prepared Buffalo sauce
- 1/4 head of purple cabbage shredded or thinly chopped
- 2 - 3 jalapeno peppers sliced
- 4 ounces blue cheese crumbles
- Slider rolls
Add chicken and stock or water to a slow cooker and cook on low 5 - 6 hours or until the fat part has an internal temperature of 160
Remove chicken from slow cooker, drain most of the liquid but leaving a little in the pot
Shred chick with two forks
Return chicken to slow cooker
Add prepared Buffalo sauce, reduce temperature to warm or keep on low until warmed through
Serve on slider rolls and top with cabbage, jalapenos, and blue cheese crumbles
- I recommend making a slider bar near the slow cooker to avoid soggy buns. Just keep warm and set out the toppings for guests to make their own
- There was plenty here to make 12 – 15 sliders
- Serve with carrot and celery sticks and some ranch and/or blue cheese dressing

Girl, you know I couldn’t be bothered with football, but all this food??? Yes, please. I can sit and watch with you guys and be the official taste tester 😉 You really can’t beat buffalo chicken and made into perfect little bite size portions? I’ll take 5…hehehe. Love it! Pinned, of course 🙂
Kathleen | Hapa Nom Nom
Lol, I love your disclaimer! While I’m not a football fan, I do LOVE all of the food that is associated with the game. My battle isn’t on the 50 yard line, it’s on the beer-soaked table 😉 So these sliders, look ah…maz…ing! And I love slow cooker recipes – so easy and always incredible!
Linda @ 2 Cookin' Mamas
This looks so easy and so good! I love the way you get ready for some football!
Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary
LMAO! Oh my gawd, your disclaimer is HILLARIOUS, Rach! Seriously, best opening paragraph on a blog EVER. These slider sandos look OFF THE HOOK, lady! I’ll take 5 dozen… because I’m fat and have ZERO self control. Gimme Gimme! Cheers, lovely! xo Pinned!
David @ Spiced
Oh now this sounds like my kind of football food! Bring on the buffalo everything…especially when it’s this easy to make. You know, there are 4 quarters in a football game. Does that mean I can have 4 sliders? And then another one for halftime? 🙂
Mary Ann | The Beach House Kitchen
LOVE your NOTE at the top Rachelle! And totally love these sliders. I would have a real difficult time only eating one!! They’ll be a total hit at our house!
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
Well, look how delicious these look! I am a little bit addicted to that buffalo sauce, so I might have to use a whole bottle of it on this!
Shashi at RunninSrilankan
…Aaaaannnnd THIS is why I LOVE football season! I never know whos playing or what’s going on – even though my eyes seem to be on the telly – my thoughts are with the food – especially when sliders like this are involved!
All That I'm Eating
Oh my this has made me hungry! It looks fantastic and a perfect recipe for the slow cooker!
Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kitchen
Oh wow! These sliders look so adorable and sound super yummy and flavorful, Rachel. A perfect football food. However, I don’t watch football, but I would love to eat these sliders. 🙂
Demeter | Beaming Baker
You’ve definitely got the spirit, Rachelle! And it’s totally infectious. Now if I could just get ya to make me a vegan version of this… we’d be all set. You know I’m drooling over all these gorgeous colors and mini burger awesomeness. What is it about sliders (and especially YOUR food) that looks soooo good? YUM!
Haha your disclaimer is too funny! Game day food is the best especially if it involves buffalo chicken anything! Love that these cute sliders start off in the slow cooker!
MAN!!! That is a slider. I love it!!
Allie | In This Kitchen
*heart eyes emoji* these look so awesome! I want one of these right now and I’m nowhere near dinner time, haha.
Keri @ Fashionable Foods
These sliders look fantastic! I’m not a football fan at all.. or sports in general. However, I love game food and will gladly watch any sport if there’s delicious food involved! I love your disclaimer, by the way 😉
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
Now this is my kind of slow cooker meal! I’m not a football fan, but when there’s food, I can sit and enjoy it! Wish I had a few of these gorgeous sliders for dinner tonight!
I would watch football just to eat these. They looking flipping wonderful. I love that you make this in a slow cooker!
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop
Hooray for football season and football food! Actually for me it’s all about the food. Occasionally I’ll pay attention to the game, but I’m all about cooking eating and visiting! I guess I won’t be invited to any football parties anytime soon! I’ll just have to host my own!
I’m planning for a tailgate this weekend and I know these chicken sliders will be a hit!! Thanks for another fabulous recipe and round-up, my friend!!
I’m not a fal of football, but love football snacks! These sliders look awesome!
karrie @ Tasty Ever After
I don’t know how I missed this unbelievably yummy post! I love football almost as much as I love delicious gameday eats. Pinning so I can make a recipe (or two) from this roundup every weekend, especially the New England Rum Punch. YAY!!! GO PATS!! lol!
