If you’re looking for a new and delicious slow cooker recipe, look no further. This Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Pasta is creamy with a kick from the buffalo wing sauce. It’ll be a hit!
Oh hey! It’s Mandy from Mandy’s Recipe Box. I’m here with a new favorite recipe of mine. I am starting to like spicier food more and more. This is a recipe where the heat can be as little or as much as you want. I used only a little buffalo wing sauce and it was just barely spicy. My 3-year-old ate it up so it’s totally family friendly. You can make it like I’ve instructed and just add more buffalo wing sauce to the servings of those who want it spicier or add more when making it depending on your family’s tastes.
I just wanted to eat the chicken once I had shredded it and added more sauce to it. But I’m glad I didn’t because once the pasta is added and cooked, it’s amazing. Creamy, flavorful and full of carbs. You have to make this recipe soon!
