Delicious buffalo chicken sandwiches made in the slow cooker!

A few weeks ago, I tried a buffalo chicken sandwich from a restaurant and it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!  They used real blue cheese on it and it was divine. Spicy. Smokey. Cheesy. Just delicious!

This sandwich is ALMOST as good. I say ALMOST because there’s just something so amazing about someone else making it for you. That just makes food taste better.  If you can get someone else to make this sandwich for you, then do it!  It’ll be perfection then!

How to Adjust the Spiciness of the Chicken

This recipe is versatile and incredibly easy to make. You can easily adjust the spice level with the buffalo sauce you select for this recipe. Buffalo sauce can range from mild to hot, be sweet or tangy, or contain a blend of unique flavors. The buffalo sauce you choose will determine the flavors and heat level of the chicken. So, pick your favorite and get cooking!

How to Toast Buns for the Sandwiches

I highly recommend toasting the hoagie or hamburger buns for this sandwich. Simply butter the top of the buns or inside of the hoagie, spread single layer on a cookie sheet, and bake at 400°F for about five minutes. Keep an eye on them while they toast in the oven. You want them to by crispy and browned without burning.

Serving Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Drizzle your sandwich with ranch or blue cheese dressing and serve. Try my favorite homemade ranch dressing recipe for the best ranch dressing ever. You won’t regret it.

Serve with one of these easy side dishes for a complete BBQ style meal.
