Shredded chicken coated in buffalo sauce and topped with a creamy blue cheese coleslaw. These easy to make slow cooker Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Blue Cheese Coleslaw are perfect for a weeknight dinner or serve them up on game day!
It’s that time of year again where I dust off the old slow cooker and start putting it to work. A lot of people use their slow cookers year round and I’d like to say I’m one of them, but I’m not. There are tons of ways you can use it in the summer, but I’m all about my grill from May through September. Usually when the temperatures start dipping down below 60 I’m a little less excited about standing outside tending to the grill. Although, don’t be surprised if you see a blond haired girl standing out on her deck with her winter coat on in November grilling up her favorite cut of meat!
One of my favorite things about making dinner in the slow cooker is I can make a large amount of food and not dirty up all the dishes I own. Even though there’s only two mouths to feed in our house (4 if you count the snacks the cats get) I like to make extra so I can stick it in the freezer for the days when I’m too busy or have no motivation to make dinner. Yes, even food bloggers have days where the thought of cooking is the last thing on your mind.
One of my favorite things to throw in my slow cooker is chicken. You can flavor it with just about anything you have on hand and it will generally turn out good. Since my husband and I are both fans of buffalo sauce I knew these Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Blue Cheese Coleslaw would be a hit.
The tacos couldn’t be easier to make and they’re great not only for a weeknight dinner, but crowd pleasing game day food as well. The chicken is flavored with onion, carrots, celery seed, and garlic and cooked on low until it’s easy to shred. Once the chicken is shredded a generous amount of buffalo sauce is stirred in along with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. Yes, collagen peptides.
Adding just a couple scoops of flavorless and completely undetectable collagen to these tacos adds an extra 18 grams of proteins to them not to mention the benefits of helping with the repair of joint and bone damage (super important for runners), healthier looking hair, skin and nails and if you have any digestion issues it can help with that as well. Most importantly these Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Blue Cheese Coleslaw taste incredible and they’re sure to make any buffalo sauce lover happy!
