For the chicken
I find the easiest option is to season and toss several breasts into a crock pot. Let that cook and do it’s thing. I season my chicken with salt, pepper, a little garlic powder, Italian seasoning and chicken stock. Cook on low for 3 hours and you’ll have tender chicken that easily pulls apart with a fork, perfect for this buffalo chicken recipe.
As far as the cheese topping
I’ve used cheddar, colby jack and mozzarella. They are all delicious and you can’t go wrong with either option. This particular time I had extra mozzarella that I had to use so that’s what I sprinkled on top. Feel free to pick your cheese and roll with it. I also love to chop some fresh scallions and sprinkle those on top, gives it an extra kick.
This buffalo chicken recipe is the perfect appetizer for Super Bowl Sunday or just to have in the fridge for the week.
You can make buffalo chicken lettuce wraps out of the filling or add to salad to get a few meals out of the dish. Prep ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake, it’s the perfect plan ahead – no fuss recipe!
