Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Tonight's dinner was lacking in photographic-ness, but made up for it in ease and yumminess.


I first saw this idea at Home Sweet Home, and thought "why didn't I think of that?"  Just throw however many boneless chicken breasts you want into the crock pot, (I used 6), add half a bottle of hot wing sauce.  I only had Frank's Red Hot, so I toned it down by adding a little ketchup and a bit of butter.
Leave in the crock pot on low about 7-8 hours, and dinner is ready. I suppose you could serve them whole or shredded.  Whatever makes you happy.  The chicken comes out completely moist and tender, and was really yummy with pickles, red onion, and ranch dressing.

Speaking of Disney, we got to go see Disney on Ice last night!  (well, the voices in my head were speaking of Disney, as usual)
The cool part was it was totally free courtesy of a giveaway I won at The Good Deal Gal.  Which is a really cool website...Rachael scours the universe to find all sorts of deals, discounts, and coupons, and shares all her info with us!


I think the family had a really nice time, even held the boy child's attention.  We had really great seats too, I was expecting the nosebleed section, but we were on the 7th row.  

Cool collage thing made at Photovisi.

Looks yummy! I like the idea of ranch dressing, since I don't like mayo on my sandwiches.

Disney on Ice sounds like a fun family event!

I love big, meaty sandwiches for dinner. Yum.

That really looks good! I might try a more moderate sauce and not the red hot stuff though!

I love this method of cooking chicken in the crock pot. I've tried it with BBQ, but I think I would like it better with the Frank's Red Hot (I love that stuff).

Disney on Ice sounds like lots of fun!

Juliana said...

Are they made with real buffalo?

;o)

Julie said...

Yes, but I had a hard time catching that buffalo, they're fast!

Krista said...

What a great way to make a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich! I love that it uses boneless, skinless chicken breast in the crock pot and it's not fried! This would be a hit at our house, my husband and I are both big fans of Frank's.

Very cool that you got to see Disney on Ice. My daughter wanted to go when it came to our town. I promised her we could next year.

what a great idea! I need to whip out my crock pot!

Ingrid said...

I tried this last year after seeing it on Monica's and my chicken turned out kinda stringy and tough. Plus I over did the BBQ sauce. I'll have to try ti again.

Hope you had a happy and delicious Easter!
