Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sliders

I admit, I'm probably the last person to try making these sliders. Now that I finally have, they've become a new favorite.

We had these for dinner over the weekend and had just enough meat leftover to use in quesadillas and a couple mini pizzas for my lunch one day. So besides making great little sliders, the meat is awesome to use in other dishes. I'm thinking it would be great to keep on hand in the freezer, easy to thaw and use for various meals.

My husband doesn't always love slow cooker meals, he tends to think chicken especially tastes funny and sometimes dry. Even he was quite surprised at how juicy the chicken stayed, and how flavorful it really was.

With the Super Bowl coming up shortly, I'm sure these would be an awesome addition to your spread. You get all the great flavors of buffalo wings, but without the mess!

Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sliders

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper
1 cup buffalo wing sauce {I love Cookie's Wings n' Things}
Small cocktail buns
Ranch dressing, if desired

Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place chicken in slow cooker, add garlic clove on top. Pour buffalo wing sauce over chicken breasts. Cover and let cook on low for 6 hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker, shred with forks and return to pot so it can soak up all of those juices.

When ready to serve, place shredded chicken on buns, drizzle ranch dressing {or blue cheese} on top if desired.
