Slow Cooker Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

I've been on a mission to diversify my slow cooker recipe repertoire, mainly because crockpot dishes are one of the few things in the kitchen that even I cannot mess up! After having lots of success with my slow cooker beer pulled pork, I set my sights on creating some yummy buffalo chicken.


When it was my turn to host the Crockpot Club, I knew I needed something that would pack a lot of flavor without causing me to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. These buffalo chicken sandwiches were paired with a green salad, a broccoli/carrot lentil slaw, and T's famous homemade fries...I have to say, it was a pretty awesome feast! Now that it's fall, these will definitely be on heavy rotation in our home. In fact, we just made a huge batch of this for our housewarming party and the entire pot was devoured!


Here's all you need to know to create your own (super easy, ridiculously delicious) slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwiches.

Slow Cooker Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches


Ingredients (for 4 servings)
* 4 chicken breasts
* 4 hamburger buns
* 12 oz. buffalo wing sauce
* 2 tablespoons ranch mix seasoning
* 2 tablespoons butter
* Blue cheese dressing (to taste)


Instructions
* In a small bowl, combine the buffalo wing sauce and ranch mix seasoning.

* Place the chicken breasts in a slow cooker, and cover with the hot sauce mixture. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.


* Shred the chicken breasts and stir in the butter until melted. Cook on low for an additional hour.

* Add buffalo chicken to buns, and top with blue cheese dressing.

  16. My slow cooker was a go-to kitchen helper for forever. I haven't used it recently but YES to tossing in chicken and sauce and calling it a day. I need to remember those genius liners next time, too!
