We are heading into one of my favorite times of the year: football season. I love everything about football, but one of the best parts is without a doubt, the food. So much yummy food (and beer). I don’t share a lot of recipes here because I honestly don’t cook all that much, but this is one of my favorite things to make during football season: Crock Pot shredded buffalo chicken. This recipe is super easy and tastes amazing (bonus, it’s not all that bad for you!). Here’s what you need:
Crock Pot, one packet of ranch seasoning, buffalo sauce, and 4-5 chicken breasts. (We marinated our chicken breasts in some buffalo sauce, but that is totally optional. They will still absorb tons of flavor in the Crock Pot without marinating first.)
Cut your chicken breasts in half and put them in the bottom of the Crock Pot.
Add in the ranch seasoning.
Pour in the buffalo sauce, approximately one 12 ounce bottle, depending on your tastes.
Give everything a good mix, then let sit on high for two hours. Give everything a stir, then cook on low for an additional hour. Then use two forks to shred the chicken and mix again.
Let everything sit on low until you are ready to serve. We served ours on basic hamburger buns with a little bit of ranch dressing.
The chicken is super tender and flavorful and makes a great tailgating meal! Don’t forget to check out my awesome Disneyland 60th Prize Pack giveaway before you go!
