Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

My future son-in-law loves Buffalo Chicken wings.  Whenever I say what would you guys like for dinner, he says, "Buffalo Chicken Wings."  So, a friend of mine, Lori, recently made a recipe in the Crockpot and the sandwiches looked great.  I did a little research, and here is my version of the sandwich.

4 pounds         Boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups              Frank’s Hot Sauce
1/4 cup            Butter
1 pkg.              Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix

Wash and trim chicken.  Salt and pepper the chicken then place whole chicken breasts in the Crockpot.  Sprinkle with ranch dressing mix and pour 1 cup of the hot sauce over the chicken.  Cook on the low setting for 5 hours.  Remove cooked chicken breasts, place on a plate to cool.  Drain all the liquid  from the Crockpot, except for about ½ cup.  After chicken is cooled, shred using 2 forks. Return to Crockpot, add 1 cup of the hot sauce and ¼ cup butter.  Cook on low for 1 hour.

I serve the chicken on a Kaiser roll and top with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing.  The chicken is moist and very flavorful. 

This recipe will make 6 to 8 good size sandwiches.  Serve with celery sticks,  carrots sticks and a serving of potato salad.  Yummy!
