Buffalo Chicken Crackers Recipe

If there is one thing I love and automatically default to on a Friday night it’s chicken wings. My husband makes the best buffalo chicken wings on the grill. They are packed with flavor and they make my mouth water just thinking about them! My husband doesn’t always want to fire up the charcoal and spend an hour making me grilled chicken wings so when I need a quick snack fix or a crowd pleasing appetizer I default to these Buffalo Chicken Crackers. They taste like chicken wings with an amazing crunch from the cracker and spicy buffalo goodness throughout. They are out of this world!

Buffalo Chicken Ritz Crackers

All you’ll need is 2 cups of shredded chicken (leftovers work great otherwise you can toss a couple chicken breasts in the crock pot with some chicken broth on high for a couple hours), provolone cheese, melted butter, Frank’s hot sauce and RITZ® crackers along with some ranch dressing and green onions for garnish.

Ritz Crackers

I love the RITZ® Bacon flavored crackers in this recipe as it adds another layer of flavors. I also have made this with Original RITZ® crackers. You can use whatever variety you like best!
