Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili Recipe 

Buffalo Chicken Chili Ingredients:

  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Chicken broth
  • Coconut milk
  • A packet of ranch seasoning mix
  • Homemade buffalo sauce – you can also use a store-bought sauce, but our homemade version is super easy to make!
  • Chicken thighs or chicken breasts
  • Corn starch
  • Water

Buffalo Chicken Chili Directions:

Dice the celery and onions and put in the slow cooker. Make sure to use a slow cooker that is the right size. You want the slow cooker to be 2/3 full – no more and no less. This recipe will need a smaller size slow cooker, about 3-4 quarts. Double it and use a 6-quart slow cooker. 

Next, cut the chicken into 1/2″ cubes and place in the slow cooker. You can use either thighs or breasts, but thighs tend to cook better in a slow cooker.  Add the coconut milk, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing mix to the slow cooker, and mix it all together. 

You can use our homemade buffalo sauce recipe or a store-bought sauce for this chili. The homemade sauce is easy to make. If you don’t have a ranch dressing packet on hand, use 1/4 cup of homemade Italian dressing mix and add dill. Dill is the secret ingredient to ranch dressing. 

Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 3 hours.

Whisk together the corn starch and water in a small bowl. Add to the slow cooker and cook an additional 15 minutes or until thickened.

Serve the buffalo chicken chili with a side of celery and blue cheese dressing for an authentic buffalo chicken experience.
