  • 2 lbs chicken breasts ⁣
  • 1 shallot diced⁣
  • 5 cloves garlic⁣
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning ⁣
  • 1 – 12 oz bottle buffalo sauce ⁣
  • 1 tsp cornstarch ⁣
  • 24 mini Hawaiian slider buns ⁣
  • 5 oz crumbled blue cheese ⁣
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter melted ⁣
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning ⁣


  • 2 cups shredded carrots⁣
  • 4 celery stalks diced ⁣
  • 4 cups shredded green cabbage⁣
  • 1/2 cup olive oil⁣
  • 1 tsp celery seed⁣
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt⁣
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper⁣
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning⁣
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar ⁣


  • Add chicken breasts, garlic, shallot, buffalo sauce and ranch seasoning in a crock pot. Mix to combine. Ensure all chicken breasts are covered in sauce. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours.⁣
  • With 30 minutes remaining in cook time, shred chicken with two forks. Continue cooking for remaining time.⁣
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove shredded chicken from crock pot. Set aside. Add cornstarch to remaining liquid and whisk until dissolved. This will help sauce thicken.⁣
  • When chicken is done cooking, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Remove the rolls from the package and use a long, sharp knife to cut the whole loaf in half horizontally to create a bottom half and a top half. ⁣ Do not separate into individual rolls.⁣
  • Spray a 9 by 13 inch pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray and add the bottom half of the slider rolls as one grouping.⁣
  • Spread the shredded chicken over the bottom layer. Note, this will be a thick layer of chicken. Pour thickened buffalo sauce over the top. Sprinkle with blue cheese and top with the top half of the slider rolls.⁣
  • Combine the melted butter and the Italian seasoning. Spread 3/4 of mixture over the top of the slider rolls with a spoon or pastry brush. Save a ⁣little butter to spread on top of sandwiches after baking.
  • Bake covered with aluminum foil for 15 to 20 minutes and then uncovered for five minutes or until the sliders are golden brown.⁣ Once done baking, brush remaining butter and seasoning mixture over top of sandwiches.
  • While sliders are baking, prepare slaw. Combine carrots, celery and cabbage in a medium bowl. Set aside. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk well. Pour over top of slaw. Toss well. Let sit until ready to serve.⁣
  • Serve 2-3 sliders per person. Add slaw inside slider buns or on the side.
