Fast Family (Crockpot) Dinner: Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Another fast family dinner coming in hot — buffalo chicken stuffed sweet potatoes. This is one of our favorite weekday meals. It’s so easy to prep (using the crockpot hack) and it’s insanely delicious.I found this delicious tzatziki ranch in the produce section at Publix and we really liked it!

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes


  • 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 4 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • aluminum foil
  • slow cooker liner
  • ranch dressing

Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Pepper Sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Divide your crockpot using a piece of aluminum foil (see video tutorial). Insert slow cooker liner. Place chicken on one side and potatoes on the other side.
  • In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, combine the hot sauce, coconut oil, coconut aminos and garlic powder. Stir together and heat until coconut oil is melted.
  • Pour sauce over chicken in slow cooker.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours on low or until chicken and potatoes are tender. (I just set mine for 8 hours and let it stay on “warm” until I can get home)
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with two forks. Return shredded chicken to slow cooker and toss with sauce.
  • Serve chicken in baked sweet potatoes, drizzle with ranch and sprinkle with green onions.

    Thanx, looks very good and will definitely try it soon!! Quick question though, do you think (or might even have tried it..) just placing potatoes in aluminum foil right in the crockpot with no extra divider or liner will work? Just thinking it would reduce plastic waste… cheers Andrea

      Unfortunately, the chicken mixture has a lot of liquid and would probably not mix well with the potatoes! But if you try it and it works, you must report back!

    One of our family favorites as well! Just had this on Sunday. I LOVE Briana’s Poppy Seed dressing on this combo!
