Creamy buffalo sauce blends with 2 kinds of cheeses and are piled high on top of chicken to make these Buffalo Chicken Sliders. An easy recipe for busy weekdays, parties, or serving on game day, too!
We love having quick and easy meals here. I mean, who doesn’t right? When life gets hectic, it’s often way to easy to head for the drive through. That’s when I grab my Instant Pot and let it do the work for me.
WHAT IS AN INSTANT POT?
Unless you have not had the internet, pinterest, or have been generally living under a rock, you have at least heard of, or have seen the Instant Pot. It’s an amazing, all in one, kitchen appliance that you can brown, sautee, cook, and reheat in. All on the countertop, and without giving off a lot of heat.
This electric pressure cooker has presets for soup, chicken, stews, chili, and even yogurt. A twist of the lid, a touch of the button, and you have your next meal coming up fast.

Making your buffalo chicken sliders in the Instant Pot?

What if I don’t have an Instant Pot? Can I use a crockpot or slow cooker?
For a crockpot: You can simply place the chicken, ranch dressing mix, stock and buffalo sauce in your crockpot. Allow to cook on high 3-4 hours, then continue with the rest of the directions.
For cooking on the stove top: Simmer the chicken breasts in the stock until fully cooked (about 20 minutes), then shred and add ranch dressing mix and buffalo sauce. Continue with remaining directions.
