Buffalo Chicken SandwichesTuesday Night Special

Tuesday's around here are crazy.  It seems like everyone in my family has something going on that night.  If you have a night like that at your house, may I suggest Buffalo Chicken sandwiches. They only take about 5 minutes to prepare, and people can just assemble them whenever they are ready. Bonus: No one even made any "crock-potty" comments.

Dump a few chicken breasts in your crock-pot.  You can even use a thighs if you want.  Cover w/ your favorite wing/hot sauce. (I use maybe 1/3 of a cup,add more if you like it spicier)  Turn on low for 8 hours (or high 3-4).  Shred a head of cabbage and mix with either blue cheese (if you're a purist) or ranch salad dressing. Stick in the fridge until dinner. Before serving, shred the chicken w/ a fork. 

Slice open a crusty roll (toast if desired).  Then fill with chicken, cheddar cheese, and cabbage.  Tasty.

You could also use lettuce, but I like the crunch of the cabbage.

If you love Buffalo Wings and have more time, make this-it's amazing:

Buffalo Chicken Bread

UPDATE:  If you have any leftovers you should make Bufflalo Bleu Grilled Cheese.

  1. Lovin' buffalo chicken anything lately....something I can get my kids to eat too. I want to try to crock pot recipe. Tks for sharing.

  2. Me too, it's just the perfect flavor combo-spicy, cheesy and the blue cheese adds something a little funky. Hope you like it.

  3. Hopped over from Hodge Podge Friday and with a house full of teen/young adult boys...this recipe looks like a perfect answer to What's for Dinner! Can't wait to have them try it.

  4. Yum! I really need to get over my fear of Buffalo anything being too hot and just try it! Thanks for sharing!
