Are you as obsessed with buffalo chicken as I am? Does the thought of that spicy sauce make your mouth water? Well, fear not my friends … I’ve got a great recipe for you. First things first, break out that crock-pot! Don’t have a crock-pot? Go buy one. Like, right now. Crock-pots are heaven sent and I feel that no home should be without one.
Next, gather the following ingredients:
· 3 lbs. of boneless, skinless chicken breast
· 12 oz. of Frank’s Red Hot
· A packet of Ranch seasoning mix
· Spray butter
Start out by giving the crock-pot a few squirts of spray butter, just to ensure that the chicken breast won’t stick to the sides of the pot.
Next, place your chicken breasts right in there. Take the 12 oz. of Frank’s and pour it right over the chicken.
Last but not least, sprinkle the entire packet of Ranch seasoning on top of everything.
Set the crock-pot to “low” and allow to cook 7-9 hours.
Once the time is up, shred up the chicken with a fork (it will fall right apart because it is so tender – thanks to the slow-cooking method).

I chose to serve my buffalo chicken on some sandwiches. I got whole-wheat roles from my grocery store’s bakery, and gathered classic sandwich-topping items, so diners could choose what they want on their own sandwich.

I can’t have buffalo chicken without bleu cheese, but I also hate that one tablespoon of that stuff is a ridiculous amount of calories. Well, the salad dressing gods must have heard my complaint because I have recently discovered a bleu cheese dressing that uses yogurt!! It tastes EXACTLY the same as the original dressing, yet it’s low-fat and low-cal! So amazing. And it makes me so happy.

This chicken is so versatile, so don’t think you are limited to just sandwiches. Try it on salads, wraps, nachos, dips, or anywhere you think buffalo chicken would be a good addition.

Anybody else as obsessed with buffalo chicken as I am? Would you be willing to try a yogurt-based dressing?
