Spicy, saucy Slow Cooker Firecracker Chicken made tender juicy chicken, buffalo sauce and brown sugar for the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. 


  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Sauce* (see note)

  • 2/3 cup Franks buffalo sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (I use low sodium)
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (may sub white vinegar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • Instructions

  • Drizzle a large skillet with oil and preheat to medium-high. Add chicken pieces and 1/3 cup corn starch to a large resealable bag. Seal and shake to coat chicken. Add chicken to pan and saute 1-2 minutes, just long enough to brown the very outside of the chicken, it won’t be fully cooked at this point.
  • Grease the inside of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Add chicken.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together all sauce ingredients. Pour over chicken and stir to distribute. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Serve with cooked rice. For extra heat, sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
