Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

I absolutely love quick and easy recipes, and this buffalo chicken recipe is exactly that. I love that there are less than 5 ingredients in this recipe – chicken, Frank’s hot sauce, and ranch seasoning mix.

The buffalo shredded chicken is also great on more than just sandwiches! I love this shredded chicken on top of salads and my kids love them in wraps or in quesadillas.

But, be warned – this buffalo chicken definitely comes with a kick.

When I make these for my kids I add in 1/2 stick of butter or 1 package of cream cheese to bring the spice down a bit.

You could also ease up on the amount of wings sauce or give a milder sauce a try. Buffalo Wild Wings has a fantastic flavor pack with some milder options – we love the Asian Zing!

Alrighty y’all, let’s get cooking!
