Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Slaw Burger

Perfect weeknight meal with a kick!
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time2 hrs
Course: Main Course
Servings: 6 burgers

Equipment

  • slow cooker

Ingredients

  • 2-3 chicken breasts 1.5-2 pounds
  • 1 C buffalo sauce we prefer Sweet Baby Ray's
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 6 C coleslaw pre-made works great!
  • 1 recipe blue cheese dressing see below
  • 6 potato hamburger buns

Instructions

For the Chicken

  • Place chicken breasts in slow cooker and add ½ C buffalo sauce. Cook on low for 2-3 hours until center of each breast has reached 165°F.
  • When chicken is cooked, remove and shred with 2 forks.
  • Pour out most of liquid in slow cooker, reserving 1 cup.
  • Place shredded chicken back into slow cooker and add ½ C buffalo sauce and add cooking juices until all the chicken is juicy.

For the Blue Cheese Slaw

  • Combine 6 cups (about ½ a large bag) of coleslaw with ⅓ cup of blue cheese dressing and mix to combine. Feel free to add more dressing to taste.

Build your Burgers

  • Turn on broiler to high.
  • Open up hamburger buns and place center side up on a baking sheet. Place 1 slice of mozzarella on one side of each pair of buns. Toast in the oven until cheese has melted and buns are slightly toasted. Remove from oven.
  • On top of the bottom of the bun, pile warm buffalo chicken. Top it off with blue cheese cole slaw.
  • I like to add a little extra buffalo sauce for some extra heat. Feel free to add sauces to taste!
