Preparing the Chicken

To start off, you will need 1 lb of chicken breast. Season the chicken with 1 TBSP of dry seasoning, which can include a blend of salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. For an extra kick, add half a cup of Buffalo sauce, such as Sweet Baby Ray’s Mild. The slow cooker will be our secret weapon in creating tender and flavorful chicken. Place the seasoned chicken and Buffalo sauce in the slow cooker, and let it cook on low for 4-6 hours. The result will be juicy, perfectly seasoned chicken that falls apart with a fork.

Preparing the Potatoes

While the chicken is cooking, let’s prepare the star of the dish – the baked potatoes. Start by scrubbing and washing four large potatoes. To achieve a crispy skin, poke holes in the potatoes and coat them with olive oil and salt. There are several methods you can use to cook the potatoes. One option is to cook them in an air fryer for 40-60 minutes, which will give them a deliciously crispy exterior. Alternatively, you can bake them in the oven or even microwave them if you’re short on time.

Assembling the Dish

Once the chicken and potatoes are cooked, it’s time to assemble the Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Baked Potatoes. Begin by shredding the cooked chicken and mixing it with ranch dressing, shredded mozzarella cheese, and additional Buffalo sauce if desired. The ranch dressing adds a creamy element to balance out the spicy flavors of the buffalo chicken.

Now, let’s focus on the potatoes. Cut each potato lengthwise and add a pat of butter to each half. Next, pile on the Buffalo chicken mixture, ensuring that each potato is generously topped. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the chicken, allowing it to melt slightly. To add a touch of freshness, garnish the potatoes with a dollop of sour cream, chopped bacon bits, and chopped green onions. The combination of flavors and textures in this dish is sure to impress your family and friends.
