SC Buffalo Chicken Sliders w/ Celery Slaw

Posted in : Chicken Dishes, Crockpot on by : tiffannybrandel

So, when we first started our kitchen remodel, I had lofty expectations of cooking while under construction.  I had a long  list of “easy” crockpot meals that I was going to prepare in my temporary kitchen in order not to have to eat take out every night.  HAHAHAHA!  The joke was on me.  About 3 days into construction, everything was covered in dust (and I was without a sink) and I decided there was no way I was cooking anything until we were done.  Almost 4 weeks later, we finally have a sink and a stove!  We have a little bit of finish work left to do, but we are 95% complete and I am back to cooking and baking, YAY!

I thought I would cook one of the many crock pot meals that I had picked out weeks ago.  I had seen the recipe for Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sliders with Celery Slaw (by Skinny Mom)  all over Pinterest a couple weeks ago and knew I had to try it.

It seemed all too easy.  Lay a couple of chicken breast at the bottom of your slow cooker and cover them with Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce, garlic and onion powder.  The slaw is made with a classic coleslaw mix, celery and ranch yogurt dressing.

When the chicken is done cooking (4 hours high, 6 hours low), shred it and leave it in the sauce for another 15 minutes or so.  Pile the chicken on a slider bun and top with some slaw and a bit of blue cheese crumbles.  You can totally skip the crumbles if you do not like the pungent taste of blue cheese.

Now, I made this dish mainly for my hubby.  He loves wings and I knew he would really like this chicken.  I was surprised how much I liked this recipe!!  I originally thought the sauce was going to be totally overpowering… I was wrong.  It is just the right amount.  I couldn’t get over how much this tasted just like buffalo wings!  Because the chicken is a bit spicy, the coleslaw is heaven sent!  The cool ranch dressing combined with the crunchy cabbage is so amazing.  And the added celery…genius!  I was surprised how much you could taste the celery and how much it brought to the dish.

This was a really cool dish that would make a great addition to any game day or tailgate party!
