I feel like I am on a roll with cooking again. I have been in the kitchen brainstorming, creating, testing and snapchatting behind the scenes of new content. I even got motivated to start shooting some basic videos which I did for this crockpot buffalo chicken recipe. I even made a separate video with the best time saving cooking hack I know to date. Please share the video after you watch!
Best Kitchen Cooking Hack ever – What a time Saver
Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sliders
Both videos are pretty cool right? I think I want to keep creating both types of video and I need your feedback. Do you like how they are only about 1 minute in length? Leave me a comment below with your thoughts after you share the video.
This may not be a surprise to you but crockpot recipes are my absolute favorite. They are easy to cook, easy to clean and make lots of scrumptious leftovers. I love crockpots so much I actually dedicated an entire page of my website to them for you with an awesome infographic. See the Ultimate Guide to Slow Cookers here.
I can’t wait to see all your pictures of this recipe. Make sure you send me videos and pictures on Snapchat (username: cookingcaveman) so I can respond and answer any questions you have.
Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sliders
- 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 3/4 cup grass-fed butter melted
- 3/4 cup hot sauce I used Frank's & Tessemae's
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
- Combine butter, hot sauce, coconut aminos and granulated garlic in a bowl and mix well (This recipe works great with just the butter and hot sauce as well)
- Line the bottom of your crockpot with chicken breasts
- Pour hot sauce mixture over chicken ensuring everything is covered
- Place lid on crockpot, set on high and cook for 4 hours
- Once done cooking, shred chicken in the crockpot using a handmixer (video above) or by hand
- Serve as is or turn into sliders using Udi's gluten-free buns and our brand new coleslaw recipe
Finally got around to making this and it was great! So easy to make and the hand mixer trick has changed my life :) Thanks!
I just got an instant pot. My family loves this recipe! How can I adapt it to the IP?
I really like that you have a video along with the recipe. Will have to try this out for myself.
Thank you, let me know how you like it.
thank you, let me know how you like them.
This recipe turned out delicious and was super easy to pull together. I even nervously shredded it with the beaters and it worked like a charm. Thanks so much!
Can I make it in a stovetop pressure cooker as is or would I need to add some more liquid?
never tried let me know if it works
What are garlic granules?
Just made this for lunch the next couple days for my husband and I as per your suggestion. I doubled the recipe except because I know I don’t like spicy I only used 3/4c for a double batch and it’s perfect for my taste buds! This is delicious and will be making it again.
I’m trying to give the recipe 5 stars but the rating below won’t let me :( I made this in my instant pot for dinner last night and ate the leftovers for lunch over a sweet potato. Absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to make this again!
Awesome Lani, sometimes it gets a little glitchy and I am glad you love it
this recipe turned out awesome but I need to sub hot sauce for bbq sauce. what’s a less sugar laden option than bbq sauce? Thanks!
Absolutely delicious and so easy to make!
Made this last night for a party and it was a huge hit! So easy and simple to put together. Thank you for a great recipe!
You are so welcome
I’m new to paleo (like, as of TODAY, lol). I’m reading you’re not supposed to have dairy, but this recipe has butter. I’d love to just go ahead an use butter, but can I use olive oil or melted coconut oil instead? I see above you can omit the butter completely, but I think that’d make for some dry chicken breasts. Please let me know, and feel free to mention why butter is OK.
Yes, we use grass-fed butter. We recommend removing all dairy to allow inflammation to heal and after 30 days adding it back in from the right sources. We only eat/drink raw dairy or grass-fed and grass-finished dairy.
This will work with bacon fat and hot sauce, duck fat, coconut oil, etc.
Hi George! About to finally make your buffalo chicken. Don’t have a crockpot. What oven settings would you recommend if I slow cook in a Dutch oven? Thank you!
So for these, cook them in a dutch oven at 350 for about an hour.
Any way to make a non-fat version of this? Probably eliminating the butter.
Yep that’s all you have to do
Hi George! Any recipes for a cole slaw to go along with it? Or favorite brand?
Yes I just posted it here
I didn’t watch the long video but I must admit I enjoyed the short video!
What long video? They are both under 1 minute
I tried this recipe. It was delicious. My whole family likes it. We are having it again tonight. Simple to make, simple to clean up, and delicious as leftovers. A+
I like the short video and the hand mixer trick. Worked like charm.
Awesome Chris, thank you for commenting
Oops! Now I actually read the recipe after I printed it out and you do recommend two hot sauces!
Love the short videos, love the tip, love the recipe and the fact I can print it out. I am still searching for a hot sauce I like. Any recommendations? Great job George. Thanks.
I love Frank’s Hot sauce more than anything
The hack is great! Also enjoyed the video.
Awesome thanks Sue
So before I clicked to watch the video, I checked to see how long it was. Since it was short 4 minutes or less, I chose to watch. Short and sweet!! Great job! Love it. Will try Buffalo Ckn recipe soon.
Great feedback, thank you. I will make them all short
This looks great and I love the chicken shredding hack. I don’t actually own a handheld mixer so I guess I’ll see if the KitchenAid stand mixer will work instead. Thanks George.
The kitchenaid will work, just don’t turn it on too high
Shared both video’s. I’ll need to do a dairy-free version for now and try using Earth Balance Organic Buttery Spread, but can’t wait to try it. Love the hack! Thanks for sharing George!
You are so welcome and hope you love it
What is the measurement on the hot sauce? It just says 3/4. Thanks! I think my husband would really like this recipe.
Sorry Amy, it is a cup. I fixed it now and he will love it
What is the measurement for the hot sauce? TBSP?
Sorry it is cup, I had a type :)
Cracks me up that I never thought of this hack before. Maybe because most of the meatI use has bones. No matter…Can’t wait to share with my mom! Thank you. Your recipes are my favorite.
Thank you Cathy. I was shocked it took me so long to figure this out :)
