Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches are a tantalizing and easy-to-make dish, perfect for game day, casual gatherings, or a flavorful family meal. These sandwiches feature chicken breasts cooked in spicy buffalo sauce, then shredded and served on buns with a creamy ranch or blue cheese dressing and crunchy celery.


  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6-8 hamburger buns
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • Celery sticks, finely chopped
  • Optional: Sliced cheese (like cheddar or Monterey Jack)


  1. In the slow cooker, combine the buffalo wing sauce, chicken broth, butter, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to mix well.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the slow cooker and turn them to coat evenly with the sauce.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is very tender and easily shreds.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and stir well to coat it with the sauce.
  5. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Split the hamburger buns and place them on a baking sheet. Toast the buns under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, just until lightly browned.
  6. Assemble the sandwiches: Pile the shredded buffalo chicken onto the toasted buns. Add a slice of cheese if desired, and place back under the broiler for another minute to melt the cheese.
  7. Top with a generous drizzle of ranch or blue cheese dressing and sprinkle with finely chopped celery.
  8. Serve the sandwiches hot with extra sauce on the side, if desired.
