This shredded buffalo chicken recipe is so easy to make in the crockpot! The meat is so versatile you can use this meat so many ways. I actually made for my brother as he loves buffalo chicken. It can easily be used to make a buffalo chicken sandwich or wrap. You can eat on it’s own or top it over rice and noodles or you can also make into enchiladas. If you love buffalo wings this recipe is for you. To keep a little less fattening I didn’t add any liquid dressings like ranch or blue cheese. I used low fat cream cheese. It comes out so delicious!!
Crockpot Buffalo Shredded Chicken
4lb chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
2-3 cups Buffalo wing sauce
1 Ranch packet seasoning
8 oz reduced cream cheese, cut in cubes
Directions: Add a crockpot bag liner to your crockpot. (See link below for what I use from Amazon) Add in your chicken breasts. Using half the seasoning packet of Ranch sprinkle both sides of chicken. Let cook on low 2 hours.
After the 2 hours add in and cover the chicken breast completely with buffalo sauce. Let cook another 2-3 hours on low until the chicken is fully cooked. (Note: It may be less, or more time depending on the thickness of the breasts, Mine were pretty thick.)
Remove chicken from the crockpot and add to a large bowl. Using 2 forks, shred the chicken completely.
Add chicken back into the crock pot and add in the chunks of cream cheese and mix well. Sprinkle on the rest of the ranch seasoning. Let cook another 15-30 minutes until the cream cheese is completely melted. Mix well. Remove from crock put and enjoy. Serve however you like. This recipe is also great for the freezer.
