I got the idea for these Buffalo chicken sliders from my mom and dad, who'd made a similar version for a family get-together. It's a versatile recipe, and I sometimes use several different styles of Buffalo sauce and let guests mix and match their favorites. —Christina Addison, Blanchester, Ohio

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 12 Hawaiian sweet rolls, warmed
  • Optional: Lettuce leaves, sliced tomato, thinly sliced red onion and crumbled blue cheese


  1. Place chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Toss with 2 tablespoons hot sauce and pepper; cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours or until tender.
  2. Remove chicken; discard cooking juices. In a small saucepan, combine butter, honey and remaining hot sauce; cook and stir over medium heat until blended. Shred chicken with 2 forks; stir into sauce and heat through. Serve on rolls with desired optional ingredients.

Can you freeze Buffalo Chicken Sliders?

Freeze cooled chicken mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, stirring occasionally; add water or broth if necessary.
