Buffalo Pulled Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 bottle buffalo sauce (approx. 18 ounces)
-We use Frank’s Red Hot Wings sauce…it's not as spicy as regular hot sauce!
½ packet dry ranch dressing mix
Put the chicken, ½ the sauce, and the dry ranch mix into a slow cooker. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. Use two forks to shred the chicken and mix together with the remaining sauce.
Try it as a sandwich:
Use whole wheat buns to make buffalo chicken sandwiches.
Bonus: Add some veggies to your sandwich, such as lettuce, onion, and tomato slices, or try piling on some coleslaw for a crunchy, tangy twist!
Try it as a salad:
Add the chicken on top of a bed of lettuce and a mixture of your favorite veggies and salad toppings.
Bonus: Guac goes surprisingly well with this chicken. Add some to your salad for a heart healthy boost!
