Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches are the perfect blend of spicy, tangy, and savory, making them a great choice for gatherings or a flavorful family meal. The slow cooker does most of the work, resulting in tender, juicy chicken that’s full of buffalo sauce flavor.


  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce (plus more for serving)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 sandwich buns, split and toasted
  • Optional: blue cheese or ranch dressing for topping
  • Optional: sliced celery and carrot sticks for serving


  1. Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the buffalo wing sauce, chicken broth, ranch dressing, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, and chopped onion. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken in the slow cooker.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is very tender.
  5. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks.
  6. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and stir it into the sauce. Let it cook for an additional 20-30 minutes on low to absorb the flavors.
  7. Spoon the buffalo chicken onto the toasted buns. Top with additional buffalo sauce, blue cheese, or ranch dressing if desired.
  8. Serve the sandwiches with celery and carrot sticks on the side for a classic touch.
