    Made this and it was fabulous! I added a block of reduced fat cream cheese for a creamy sauce. Yum! Thank you for the recipe! :-)

  2. Tiffany says

    Hi, do any of your recipes have an 8 hour cook time? I’d love to be able to cook frozen chicken while I’m at work.

    • Heidi says

      Hi Tiffany ~ for all of these crockpot recipes that cook on ‘High’, you can usually just double the cooking time and cook on ‘Low’. Hope that helps! ;)

  3. Taylor says

    Your recipes are so simple I love them! Want to make this one tonight have to run and get the right sauce. Do you mix in the whole bottle?

  4. amanda says

    I am so new to the crock pot experience!! So I know this sounds silly, but when it says to cook the chicken for three hours, what do you cook it IN? Water? Broth? I worry about boiling it or making it too salty….

  5. chrissy says

    Do you think if you double the recipe, it’ll mean double the time? I have alot of friends and family always over!

  6. BSKYM says

    could you put the chicken in with the sauces and cook on low, instead of cooking chicken first and then adding sauces?

    • Nikki says

      I cook mine with the sauces in on low for four hours. I used chicken tenders not breast and it was still awesome. I really enjoyed this recipe.

  7. Candace says

    This was excellent!!! I shredded the chicken and made sandwiches. After the 3 hour cook time, I shredded the chicken and then added the sauce, letting it cook for the 30 mins. YUMMY!!!!!

  8. Jenn says

    Great recipe!!! My husband and I made it tonight and we shredded the chicken after it cooked and put it back in with the sauce mixture and had buffalo chicken tacos! Thanks for the inspiration and yummy meal!

  9. Mallory Herman says

    Hi, I was wondering if I can use the ranch dip mix instead of the seasoning? I grabbed that on accident!!

  10. sandra says

    What could you use instead of packet ranch. It’s impossible to get in Ireland as are many of your prepacked ingredients

    • mike says


      1/2 cup dry buttermilk (can use regular powdered milk, but I’m not sure how that would affect taste/texture)
      1 T. dried parsley flakes
      1 tsp. instant minced onions
      1 tsp. dill weed
      1 tsp. garlic salt
      1 tsp. onion powder
      1/2 tsp. garlic powder
      1 tsp. salt (I didn’t add it)
      1/4 tsp. pepper

    • Heidi says

      Hi Jana ~ I’ve only ever made this with Frank’s, but I’m sure other Buffalo sauces would be yummy, too! If you try… let me know how it turns out! :)

  11. Erik says

    This is amazing! After I added the sauce I went to run quick errands which turned into hours. Came back and the chicken was falling off the fork. So I shredded it and they were the best buffalo chicken wraps I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

    • Heidi says

      I’m so glad you loved it, Erik! It’s such a simple, delicious dinner… and the buffalo chicken wraps sound amazing!

  12. Jordan says

    Extremely new to the crockpot cooking! So I need things extremely broken down lol. Do you need the entire bottle of buffalo sauce?

  13. says

    Love this! It has become a weekly staple. Because my family is so large, I shred the chicken and add 1 cup cooked brown rice to it. We put it on wraps and add coleslaw or lettuce/tomato with Ranch dressing to cool it down. Thanks for the recipe!
