Two Ingredient Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Thats right, I said it- Two Ingredients is all you need to make Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken. Simply combine chicken breasts and Frank’s hot sauce in the slow cooker and you are done! Okay, you need water too, but hopefully you have a running faucet and I don’t need to include that as an ingredient.

This Two Ingredient Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken is really simple to make, low calorie and no carbs. Literally, anyone can do it so you have no excuse not to ire up that crock pot and get cooking! (I’m talking to all you lazy bones out there.)

How to make Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

Add 3-4 boneless chicken breasts to a slow cooker, combine equal parts water and Frank’s hot sauce into a measuring cup. (About 1/2 cup of each but this amount can vary depending on how many or few chicken breasts you are making so just use your judgement.) Pour the Hot Sauce and Water mixture over the Chicken Breasts until just covered. Turn your crockpot on low for about 6 hours until chicken falls apart easily with a fork. Drain, shred, top with extra hot sauce if desired and serve!

Pro Tips:

  • This recipe calls for classic hot sauce, NOT Tabasco or Sriracha.
