Description

Shredded buffalo chicken sandwiches are an easy weeknight dinner recipe because they cook in the crockpot all day while you are at work!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 ounce package dry ranch dressing mix
  • optional toppings: blue cheese, ranch dressing

Instructions

  1. Cook: Put chicken into your crock pot and dump on the sauce and ranch mix. Stir. Cook on low for 6 hours until chicken is cooked through and falls apart.
  2. Shred: Remove the cooked chicken from the crock pot and allow it to cool slightly. Reserve the cooking liquid. Using two forks, shred the meat and place into a large bowl. Once the chicken is completely shredded, ladle on enough of the cooking liquid so the meat is very moist after you stir it all together.
  3. Serve: We like to top ours with ranch dressing, blue cheese, and some extra wing sauce from the bottle.

Notes

If you don’t have 6 hours, you can increase the temperature to high and it will be done in 4 hours but it will be a bit dryer and tougher.

**Freezer options:  You can combine the uncooked ingredients all together in bag and freeze until ready to use.  When ready to cook, place in your slow cooker for 8 hours on high. You can also freeze the cooked meat and then thaw and reheat to prepare.
