We are wrapping up football week with the perfect tailgating recipe: 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, 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.
Then 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!
