This is a perfect main dish for game day, a summer BBQ or just a lazy weeknight inside with the hubby.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches are yummy, tender and extremely portable so you can take them to any BBQ, cookout or potluck you want.

Crockpot buffalo chicken is great for when you have a busy day ahead of you and want to come home to a ready to eat meal that doesn’t come from a microwave. The advantage of a long cook time is that you can set your slow cooker to low and go about your day while it goes to work. This chicken recipe is perfect for sandwiches as well because it infuses the meat with flavor and you can just pull it out and spread it on bread when you’re ready to eat.
