Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Sliders are an amazing dinner recipe or perfect for entertaining! I haven’t met many people who don’t love buffalo chicken recipes, and when you put that delicious spicy chicken on a sweet Hawaiian roll, well then you have an incredible combination. Topped with some ranch dressing and green onion for some texture, this slider recipe may truly be my favorite sandwich ever!
I love my Instant Pot and I love buffalo chicken, so I knew this would be a match made in heaven. The key to delicious shredded buffalo chicken is to get that tender, fall apart texture. The Instant Pot or any electric pressure cooker is so good at making the perfect shreddable chicken.
I made these Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Sliders for dinner, but they would be amazing for easy entertaining. I have a formula for perfect party menu planning, and one of my key elements is always a meat based appetizer. Sliders are perfect for parties and they are even better when you can make them ahead of time. Just prepare your chicken in advance and then put them on the buns when you are ready to serve!
While you can certainly use any type of roll you would like, the sweet Hawaiian roll definitely makes this sandwich go from good to amazing. The hit of sweetness pairs perfectly with the tangy buffalo sauce. Feel free to add more hot sauce as desired. I was cooking for my kiddos, so I kept these sandwiches on the milder side. My husband hates bleu cheese (he’s crazy!) but you could definitely add that to your sandwich if you are a fan! I think fresh crumbles would be so tasty!
