I adore my slow cooker. I also adore buffalo chicken. Corey and I saw a HUGE bottle of Frank’s hot wing sauce at Sam’s and I intend to buy it next time I run out . . . which probably won’t be too much longer.
The best thing about the slow cooker is that you really don’t need a hard and fast recipe. You can probably throw just about anything in the slow cooker and it would come out tasty.
I decided to make some shredded buffalo chicken for sandwiches. I need quick meals to eat at work and this was the perfect thing. I feel kind of guilty calling this a recipe because it only requires THREE ingredients. Aren’t those the best recipes??
The hardest part is shredding the chicken when it’s done. And that wasn’t even hard. The chicken was so tender after it was done that all I had to do was touch it with a fork and it came apart.
I’m glad that I did not add paprika to this. That may have been a bit much. All of the buffalo sauce made it quite spicy. I think the only thing I would want to change is to add an onion next time just to jazz it up a bit.
Since I am the only one who eats buffalo sauce, I will be having buffalo chicken sandwiches for the next week. I am not complaining about that.
Shredded Buffalo Chicken (makes 5 servings)
1 pound chicken breasts
3/4 cup Frank’s buffalo sauce

Place chicken in slow cooker. Cover with buffalo sauce and butter. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. When done, shred chicken with fork. Serve!
Easiest recipe ever . . . even easier than my three ingredient Easy Biscuits. :)
