Buffalo Chicken is an obsession of mine and seems to be a very popular food item in general.  Most people I talk to have a favorite buffalo chicken dish of some kind.  I don’t know what it is that draws me back but it’s SO juicy and flavorful…. I could eat it every night of the week.

Recently, we made Crock Pot Pulled Buffalo Chicken.  I have a long list of why I love this recipe but the gist of it is, it’s juice, spicy, simple to make, and absolutely delicious!  It can be a meal by itself or used in sandwiches, salads, wraps, tacos, dips, on pizza, and more.  We chose to use it in sandwiches.  It’s a crock pot meal and makes a healthy portion so you’ll be able to eat it for a few days or serve to a crowd.

Make sure your chicken is thawed.  Trim off any excess fat.  Then, place the boneless skinless chicken breasts in the bowl of a crock pot.

Pour the buffalo sauce over the chicken until evenly coated.  Use the entire bottle.  I like to use Frank’s Red-Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, but you can use another brand if you have a favorite.

Sprinkle the ranch seasoning packet over the top.

Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.  You want the internal temperature of the chicken to reach 165 degrees F.

Remove the chicken from the crock pot and place on a cutting board.  Make sure to shake off any excess buffalo sauce before setting the chicken down.  Use two forks to shred the chicken.  The chicken should be tender enough to fall apart.

Add the shredded chicken back to the crock pot and stir to coat with the buffalo sauce.

You can enjoy immediately or cover and keep warm until ready to eat.  It’s going to change your life.

We like to add sliced cheddar cheese to hamburger buns, top with heaping portions of the buffalo chicken, then drizzle either ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing on top and enjoy as a sandwich.  You could also preheat the oven to 300 degrees, place buns (open faced) on a baking sheet, top with sliced cheese, and bake for 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese and toast the buns.  Get creative!

Happy cooking!
