On Cooking [slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwiches]

It’s not for everyone.  I get that.

But you sort of have to do it, at least a little, even if you’re just boiling pasta water, if you want to survive.

So you have to find a way to get through it.  Make it as bearable as possible.

May I recommend YouTube-ing your favorite 80s ballads and singing them at the top of your lungs?

Because sometimes that’s what gets Sunday dinner* in the slow cooker.

buffalo chicken

Some suggestions,

And one of my all-time faves:

To make buffalo chicken for 4, you will need:

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 12 oz. bottle buffalo wing sauce (we use Frank’s)
  • 1/2 (1 oz.) package ranch dressing mix
  • 2 T butter (optional)
  • 2 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • sliced bread, toasted

In the morning, put chicken, hot sauce, and ranch dressing mix in slow cooker.  Turn on low for 7 hours.

When chicken is done, shred with two forks.  Stir in butter if you’re looking to add extra calories and/or temper that spicy flavor.

Pile chicken on top of toast, and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

  1. My life is complete. I’ve somehow managed to give you a recipe that you’ve never made before, and it was successful enough to put on the blog. 🙂 and now, back to my regularly scheduled programming of pasta water.
