Simple, tasty, and packed with flavor, this Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken is great on sandwich rolls, in wraps, over salads, or on its own!
Surprisingly, my three kids enjoy Buffalo chicken. They aren’t ones for enjoying spicy foods, but I guess Buffalo doesn’t come across “spicy” to them!
A few weeks back, I was in a hurry due to a busy day. I wanted to whip up a dinner the kids would eat easily with no complaints. I tossed some ingredients into my Instant Pot, set the timer, and moved on. When the timer went off, I removed the lid, shredded the chicken and all was just about ready.
We decided to serve the chicken on hamburger buns to create a sandwich, however, the next day leftovers, I put into my tortilla wrap to change things up. You can add a slaw to it to give it a nice crunch too!
Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken is tender and juicy, packed with buffalo flavor, and is great for salads, tacos, sandwiches, and more.
I have heard of people even adding this chicken on top of their salads. Add some greens, blue cheese, and this chicken for a low carb option!
I use Frank’s Buffalo sauce typically in this because it’s not too spicy and has great flavor. You can also use a creamy Buffalo sauce, Buffalo Wild Wings sauce, etc.
If you’re looking for a quick dinner (or even lunch) option, I highly recommend giving this a try. Budget friendly, flavorful, and perfect for those busy days! Enjoy now or even freeze the leftovers!
