Sweet Heat Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

Matt loves things spicy and my son is starting to like buffalo sauce on chicken and wings. When I was thinking about making Pulled Chicken Sandwiches, I tried to come up with something that wouldn't be too spicy for our guests or our son, but something Matt would like too. The easy Sweet Heat Pulled Chicken Sandwich is what came about with only five ingredients!


  • 1/2 c. vinegar
  • 1/2 c. honey
  • 1/2 c. mild chili pepper sauce
  • 1/2 c. mild buffalo sauce
  • 2 rotisserie chickens


  • First, pull all the meat from the rotisserie chickens and put it a slow cooker.
  • Then, mix the other ingredients together in a saucepan.
  • Cook on medium heat until it bubbles and thickens a little bit (about 10 minutes).
  • Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken in the slow cooker and stir to coat.
  • Cook on low/warm for 4 hours. The longer the chicken cooks in the slow cooker, the less spicy they will be.


(I was making this for a crowd so you can cut the recipe in half if you don't need as much.)
I made extra sauce so people who wanted it more spicy could add it to the sandwich.
I served these sandwiches with a coleslaw-type salad (which was good on top of the chicken - in the sandwich). I also had individual-size bags of chips and iced tea. Easy peasy!!!
