Super Bowl is coming! And with it, the most important part – the food, of course.
I’m not a huge football fan, but I do love food. When ALDI asked me to create a recipe that would be perfect for Super Bowl parties, Buffalo Chicken popped into my mind.
I love using the slow cooker, and that works great for cooking the chicken and keeping it hot during the party. Grab a second slow cooker for the baked potatoes, if you’ve got one handy.
Using small sized potatoes keeps this dish appetizer sized. That’s great for parties, because you’ll still have plenty of room to try all the other foods being served.
But this recipe also makes a great weeknight dinner. Use large, baking potatoes. Serve it with a big green salad and roasted broccoli. It’s a great twist on a plain Tuesday night.
Here’s what you’ll need to make Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Potatoes. All of the ingredients can be found at ALDI, so you know you’ll get them for a good price too.
Only 4 ingredients go into the slow cooker. The bacon bits, Buttermilk Ranch and Blue Cheese dressings get served as toppings for the potatoes. I love the flavor of the Blue Cheese dressing, but the kids went for the Ranch.

Love this idea! I may try this with a sweet potato to make a healthier version.
Thanks for the great idea!
Do you need to thaw the chicken tenders before putting them in the slow cooker? Could you also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts?
I don’t always thaw chicken tenders before slow cooking. I do start them on high though. And you can use boneless breasts instead.
