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!
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.
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!
Find them in the cracker aisle at Walmart. There are a bajillion flavors to choose from so pick your favorite!
Then lay out your RITZ® crackers on a lined baking sheet and top with slices of provolone cheese.
Then mix together your butter and Frank’s hot sauce and pour it over your shredded chicken. Toss it to coat and then top your crackers and provolone cheese with the spicy buffalo chicken.
Now broil them in the oven on high for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted. Be careful not to burn them!
Then drizzle them with ranch or blue cheese (whichever is your favorite!) dressing and sprinkle with sliced green onions.
