Ready for the best buffalo chicken sliders or sandwiches you’ve ever had? We have you covered! These shredded buffalo chicken sliders are flavored with Dan-O’s, a perfect homemade buffalo sauce, and topped with crispy lettuce and blue cheese. They’re absolutely perfect for game day, tailgates, or a spicy Dan-O’s kind of day at home.
To start, I like to use big, thick chicken breasts whenever I make shredded chicken anything. They give you nice long strands of shredded chicken that make your food stay together better and hold in more flavor. For this reason, I used full chicken breasts which I brined for about 4 hours with salt, water, Dan-O’s and spicy pickle juice. I give the breasts a healthy coating of spicy Dan-O’s on each side, give them a nice pan sear, and then finish in the oven.
Now for the buffalo sauce, I went a very traditional route and used about 5 ingredients. This, however, is some of the best buffalo sauce you can get… so take notes! I recommend using Frank’s or Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo sauce, then the only other things you need are garlic, honey, and butter, and Dan-O’s. My recipe will give you enough to make these buffalo chicken sliders twice, but you’ll definitely want the extra and it will keep in the fridge for about a week.
You could use this shredded buffalo chicken technique for a dip, wrap, or tacos and the buffalo sauce for wings, or anything else buffalo style! Also, don’t be weak and leave out the blue cheese crumbles. The funkiness and creaminess of the cheese balanced with the acid of the sauce is a must. Just try it!
Serve shredded buffalo chicken sliders with celery and tortilla chips. Enjoy!
