These Keto Buffalo Chicken Sliders are perfect for tailgating game-days, as a perfect appetizer/party food, or even a fun weeknight dinner!
What’s better than buffalo chicken? Keto Buffalo Chicken Sliders that are packed with buffalo chicken, crunchy slaw, melty cheese, and brushed with a ranch butter glaze that is the BOMB.com.
Did you catch it above? RANCH BUTTER. How is this not a thing yet? I can think of one million ways to use it but brushing it on top of our famous keto dinner rolls has to be a favorite.
I mean, can you even? Ranch butter is the new ranch dressing, you just wait 😉
I love the crunch from the slaw in these buffalo chicken sliders. I could have done just the buffalo chicken and the cheese but I felt like it needed something fresher to cut through the richness of the other ingredients.
To make these buffalo chicken sliders first preheat your oven then jump right in!...
Make the keto slider buns
Whip up a batch of our keto rolls but make 12 rolls instead of 24. Want the rolls to have a Hawaiian rolls type of taste? Add in some pineapple extract and a touch of your favorite sugar substitute to the mix.
Make the shredded buffalo chicken
You can use boiled chicken breasts or canned chicken, but my favorite is to use a rotisserie chicken.
After that simply mix the chicken with the buffalo sauce / hot sauce (we use Franks Red Hot) and melted butter.
You could even dump the chicken, butter, and buffalo sauce in a slow cooker and leave it be for a few hours. Say you wanted to make these for dinner but you're short on time in the evenings - just make the rolls ahead of time (a day before or the morning of) and pop the chicken in the slow cooker while you're at work. When you get home simply assemble, bake, and eat!
Assemble the Keto Buffalo Chicken sliders
Slice the rolls in half, remove the top and place the bottom buns back into the skillet. Place the chicken mixture on top of the buns then layer in the slaw mixture and the cheese mixture (cheddar, provolone, blue cheese). Top with the top buns.
Make the ranch butter
Melt the butter and mix in the ranch seasoning, brush the mixture over the top of the rolls.
Bake and serve
Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the top is golden, cut into 12 sliders and serve!
what is the nutritional information?
As always, you can find the full nutritional breakdown including the carb count (total carbs and net carbs) at the bottom of the recipe card. You can find the serving size/yield at the top of the recipe card. You should always double-check your specific ingredients as different brand's ingredients may have different values.
To get a specific serving size you'll want to weigh the final dish then divide by the number of servings. We can't provide this information as your cooking style will vary from ours as well as the brand ingredients you choose to use.
are these keto buffalo chicken sliders spicy?
I personally do not think that the buffalo sauce we use, Franks RedHot, is spicy. If you do then use any mild buffalo sauce you like. Don't like buffalo sauce? Use a keto-friendly BBQ sauce!
how to store and reheat Keto sliders
I store the sliders in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat them in aluminum foil in a 375° oven for 10-15 minutes.

Made this for Super Bowl 2021! Delish!! And I even missed the Blue cheese and Ranch Butter steps! SO good...used Sweet Baby Ray's Buffalo sauce...Will definitely make again and the keto rolls are the bomb.
Absolutely delicious! I made a little (keto) sweet and tangy coleslaw so we used that instead of plain slaw but it was amazing and super filling! Thank you so much for this recipe...I'm still learning how to cook Keto and this recipe was really simple to follow. =)
