Buffalo chicken sliders are perfect for your game day. These are so easy to make too. All of the goodness of a hot wing, but you don’t have to get your fingers dirty. You don’t need a game to enjoy these; they are ready for you any day of the week.
Seriously, who doesn’t love buffalo chicken wings? It is one of my favorite ways to serve up chicken. This recipe is very straightforward, and I am going to use my pressure cooker for this recipe. I love my pressure cooker it makes cooking simple, and very clean. You can make this dish in about 30 minutes with your pressure cooker. If you don’t happen to have one, you can use a slow cooker, either way they will come out great.
I will actually give you both instructions for using a pressure cooker for this recipe as well as a slow cooker. Pressure cookers allow you to cook a recipe in a much shorter time, and with the electric ones that are available now days they are easy to use. I know not everyone has a pressure cooker, but slow cookers work well too. I give you the instructions for those too.
I am using Hawaiian bread rolls for these sandwiches, I like the sweeter bread with the spicy chicken. I personally love Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, I am never without it in my pantry, and no, I am not sponsored by these folks. I like their sauce because its hot but not explosively hot, and it has a nice depth of flavor. So often hot sauces are naturally spicy and they don’t taste good. I am also using dry Ranch dressing mix, I buy mine in bulk at Costco, it’s much cheaper that way, I also like to use it in my No Time Taco Soup recipe.
You may want to cook these ahead of time, and place this in a slow cooker for your game day and let your guests assemble their own sliders. You may want to have jars of salad dressing (Ranch or Blue Cheese), tomato slides, lettuce, and maybe even some thin onion slices to go along with these sandwiches. You could also split open the buns smear a little butter on them, and toast them for an extra touch.
Slow cooker times:
Cook on low for 7 tp 8 hours
