Savory and full of flavor this super easy creamy slow cooker chicken is a perfect budget friendly meal the whole family will love. This is an easy dump and go recipe , the slow cooker does all of the work. If you try just one of my recipes this is the one to try. I mean who doesn’t love the zesty flavor of this wing sauce , incorporating this into a dish was the best thing I ever did. This is the perfect recipe for someone that thinks they can’t cook. If you know a college student or young couple ..bingo this is the recipe for them.
Commonly asked Questions :
Do I have to use Chicken Breast?
For this recipe I use chicken breast but a boneless skinless chicken thigh could be used as well. They just shred a little differently
Where do I get the wing sauce?
Most supermarkets have this wing sauce on their condiment aisle . I have bought it at Wal-Mart and Kroger or it can even be bought at the Buffalo Wild Wing restaurant. If all else fails look on Amazon .
Do I have to use the brand of sauce you used?
When testing this recipe I used the Kroger brand of this sauce and it was good. I have to admit the buffalo wild wing sauce was just a little bit better. Sweet Baby Rae’s makes a version of this sauce but I have never tried it .
Can I use the Instant Pot to make this recipe ?
When testing this recipe I did try this in the instant pot and it worked. Follow the directions just as I wrote them but instead of cooking 3-4 hours on high set your Instant Pot to 12 minutes .
What you will need for this recipe:

It is perfect for a day you don’t want to fuss with cooking

This is the perfect dish for the pasta lover.
That creamy chicken sauce looks so good. I bet it woul be delicious with rice too!

You’re welcome Hayley, I hope you enjoy it.
This dish seems like a perfect quick and easy weeknight dish that everyone will enjoy!
It is a very easy weeknight dish.
Wow what a good recipe and so well illustrated– I made it tonight and it came out perfectly–
I did not know the wing sauce , bright idea–congratulations–
I was frustrated while I was looking at the pictures the add would always come up –very annoying–
Hi Francine ..so glad you enjoyed this recipe. The adds do have a skip option on the bottom right hand side .
I made this over the weekend! This is very delicious, decadent, and has a nice kick to it! Next time I am going to make a nice healthy salad on the side to help cut down on the amount my husband and I eat! LOL!
I am so glad you made this and enjoyed it. A beautiful side salad is a great choice for a side.
I made this 3 days ago. It was so overwhelming with the whole bottle of sauce! I promise you – you only need 1/2 the sauce. Very rich but everything tasted the same. Couldn’t taste the chicken at all. Tasted like nothing but vinegar, creamy Italian dressing-ish.
Hey Cathy.. So sorry you had bad results and Thanks for your comment. Are you sure you used the correct sauce because Garlic Parmesan wing sauce does not have a vinegar flavor at all. If you used creamy Italian dressing then I get the vinegar flavor. I have had comments on this recipe here and on social media platform all having good results . Everyone have different taste though and so sorry had bad results .
If you’re referring to the Sweet Baby Rae’s “Chicken Dipping Sauce”, that’s more of a barbecue sauce. It’s REALLY good, and could probably be used in a recipe like this, but I doubt it would taste at all like what you have here (which also sounds amazing!)
Hi Larry this recipe calls for Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce , in this recipe I used Buffalo Wild wings sauce. Kroger has their version of this sauce and I have used it as well . I have never tried the sauce you are talking about but I just may have to give it a try .
