What is Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Sauce?
Buffalo Wild Wings is an American restaurant that serves a ton of different wings with yummy sauces. One of the most popular sauces is their Garlic Parmesan Sauce. It is a creamy and rich sauce with Italian herbs, parmesan, and red chili flakes. It is a very intense sauce which is why I pair it with milk and cream cheese to balance the sauce for a pasta dish.
Their wing sauce is so popular that Buffalo Wild Wings started selling it in grocery stores and online. You can also buy it right at any of their restaurant locations too. If you can’t find it or prefer to make the garlic parmesan sauce yourself check out this recipe to make it at home. This sauce is great on chicken, pork, potatoes, pizza, and even as a dipping sauce.
Many readers told me they were surprised by the spiciness of the sauce I wanted to make a note of it at the very beginning of the recipe letting you know this sauce does have a little spice from the red chili flakes and kick to it! I didn’t think it was spicy but if you are sensitive to heat cut the sauce in half or add sour cream at the end to tone it down.

Ingredients for Crock Pot Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta

Chicken breasts: The chicken breasts serve as the main protein source for the dish. They provide a tender and flavorful base for the pasta.
Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce: The Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce is the star ingredient that brings the signature flavor to the dish. It adds a tangy, zesty, and slightly spicy note that enhances the overall taste profile.
Cream Cheese: Cream cheese adds a rich and creamy element to the dish. It helps create a luscious and velvety sauce that coats the chicken and pasta.
Milk: Milk is used to thin out the sauce and create a smoother consistency. It helps balance the richness of the cream cheese and provides a mild sweetness.
Grated Parmesan cheese: Parmesan cheese adds a nutty and salty flavor to the dish. It enhances the creaminess and complements the garlic Parmesan sauce, making it even more delectable.
Rotini noodles: The rotini noodles are the pasta component of the dish. They add a satisfying texture and help to hold the sauce, creating a well-rounded pasta meal.
Salt and pepper to taste: Salt and pepper are essential for seasoning chicken breasts, ensuring they are well-seasoned and flavorful. They also help enhance the overall taste of the dish.
How to Make Crock Pot Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta
Toss all of the ingredients in for a set-it-and-forget-it dinner! This one-pot dinner is my go-to for busy nights.
Step 1. Spray the inside of the crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2. Add chicken breasts to the bottom of the crockpot.
Step 3. Pour the entire bottle of the parmesan garlic sauce over the chicken.
Step 4. Pour milk into the garlic parmesan garlic sauce bottle and shake it up. Pour the milk over the chicken.
Step 5. Add the cream cheese and parmesan cheese on top of the chicken and sauce.
Step 6. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours and high for 2-3 hours.
Step 7. Once finished cooking shred chicken.
Step 7. Cook pasta according to instructions and drain.
Step 8. Pour pasta into the crockpot. Stir to combine all the ingredients and serve.
- Adjust the Heat Level: If you prefer a milder flavor, you can reduce the amount of Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce or opt for a mild version. Try Sweet Baby Ray’s Garlic Parmesan Sauce since it has a mild flavor. Conversely, if you love spice, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper or hot sauce to amp up the heat.
- Season the Chicken: Make sure to season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper before placing them in the slow cooker. This step will enhance the flavor of the chicken and ensure it’s well seasoned throughout the dish.
- Use a Slow Cooker Liner: To make cleanup easier, consider using a slow cooker liner before adding the ingredients. It will prevent the sauce from sticking to the sides, making cleanup a breeze.
- Shred the Chicken: Once the chicken is cooked and tender, remove it from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks. Shredding the chicken will distribute the flavors evenly and make it easier to mix with the sauce and pasta.
- Cook Pasta Al Dente: When boiling the rotini noodles, cook them until they are al dente, which means they still have a slight firmness to them. This ensures they hold their shape when mixed with the sauce and chicken, preventing them from becoming mushy.
- Garnish and Serve: Before serving, consider garnishing the dish with fresh chopped parsley or additional grated Parmesan cheese. These finishing touches add a pop of color and an extra layer of flavor to the final presentation.
- Double the Recipe: This recipe can easily be doubled to serve a larger crowd or for meal prepping. Simply adjust the ingredient quantities accordingly and ensure your slow cooker can accommodate the increased volume.
Different Ways to Serve Garlic Parmesan Chicken
There are several variations you can try to customize this Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta recipe to keep this delicious recipe in the meal rotation. Here are a few ideas:
Veggie Delight: Incorporate colorful vegetables into the dish for added nutrition and flavor. I love to add broccoli, spinach, and sliced red bell peppers in the last hour to add veggies to this dinner.. Simply add them to the crockpot along with the chicken and sauce.
Bacon Lovers: Crumble cooked bacon and mix it into the pasta before serving. The smoky and savory bacon bits will add an extra layer of deliciousness to the dish.
Fresh Herbs: Add a burst of freshness by sprinkling chopped fresh herbs like parsley, basil, or chives over the pasta before serving. This will enhance the flavors and provide a pop of color.
Lemon Zest: For a bright and tangy twist, add the zest of a lemon to the sauce mixture. The lemon zest will add a refreshing note that complements the garlic Parmesan flavors.
Creamy Tomato: If you enjoy a fusion of flavors, mix in a few tablespoons of tomato paste or marinara sauce to the creamy garlic Parmesan sauce. This will create a unique and delicious combination of creamy and tangy elements.
Spicy Kick: If you love some extra heat, add diced jalapeños or crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce mixture. This will give the dish a spicy twist and elevate the flavor profile.

Garlic Bread or Breadsticks: Serve some warm garlic bread or breadsticks on the side. The crusty exterior and soft, buttery interior will be perfect for sopping up the creamy sauce.

Crock Pot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta- Low Carb and Keto
This recipe is a great low-carb and keto choice. The sauce is filled with flavors of cheesy goodness and only has one gram of added sugar. I was so happy to find this low-carb sauce because I feel like it’s very hard to find packaged sauces that are low-carb. They are usually packed with sugar. I served this over zoodles, which are zucchini noodles for my low-carb hubby and he loved it. We have this zoodle maker which we use all the time. Or you can even buy zoodles at most grocery stores now in the produce department.
Where Can I Buy Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan Sauce?
You can purchase this sauce on Amazon, here’s the link. Plus it is available at most local grocery stores, Walmart, Target, and Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurants.
My husband has celiac disease which means you are allergic to gluten. Make sure to use gluten free pasta to keep this dish gluten free. Our favorite pasta is the Gluten-Free Barillla Pasta line. I find that it is the best one at staying together while cooking and the taste is just like real pasta. I used the Barilla Gluten-Free Rotini for this recipe.
Need a new Crock-Pot?
My favorite is this Crock Pot 7 quart Programmable Slow Cooker. First and foremost, I love being able to set the timer in case I’m not home when the food is finished cooking. The Crock-Pot just switches to warm until you are ready to eat. Plus you can lock the lid and just carry it to a party. Not only is it easy to carry but also you will never lose another Tupperware or serving dish again at a potluck party!
