Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Buffalo chicken is a great comfort food. It has great flavors, spicy and the creaminess from the cream cheese calms it down. This is a perfect dinner for Monday night, you are tired from work and the weekend (still) and it is easy and delicious. The best part? Your crockpot. This chicken can simmer for 4-6 hours and be ready for you when you get home. This is perfect for the weekends, too. You have been at the pool all day and the sun has drained you and then you still have to make dinner? Let your dinner cook while you are at the pool! This is a great sandwich, try it you will love it, it is husband approved (which means kid approved!)

3 Chicken Breasts, frozen
2 Cups of Louisiana Hot Sauce
1/2 package of Ranch Seasoning
1 tablespoon of Butter
1/2 block of Cream Cheese
Additional Toppings: Ranch Dressing, Blue Cheese Dressing, Cheddar cheese, Mozzarella Cheese

Place the chicken in the crockpot.

Pour the Lousiana Hot Sauce and ranch seasoning over the chicken.

Let cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Shred the chicken. There are two methods for this, the old two fork method or place the chicken in your Kitchen Aid stand mixer and turn it on low until shredded.

Place back in the crackpot, if using the Kitchen Aid method, and stir in the butter and cream cheese.

Let sit for 30 more minutes on low.

Place in a bun, add your favorite toppings, and serve it up. I think this is perfect all by itself and do not add any toppings, however, my husband always adds a slice of cheddar cheese.


Happy Cooking,
