There is a small portion of the population out there that crave heat in their food. These are the people who actually enjoy the runny nose you inevitably get when eating something hot. The people who know when others say something is “hot” it won’t even phase them because of their extreme tolerance for heat. The people who’ve contemplated carrying around a bottle of hot sauce in their purse/bookbag/car. The people who have found a way to incorporate buffalo sauce in to breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. The people who constantly get asked “you put hot sauce on that?!”
You know who you are.
This recipe is for you.
I bring you slow-cooked buffalo chicken sandwiches:
Simple answer. If you like hot food, you will love this sandwich.
The recipe was very easy to throw together.
Throw the following into a plastic baggie to marinate overnight:
- 4 raw skinless boneless chicken breasts
- 3/4 of a Quart (24 ounces) buffalo wing sauce (use your favorite brand–we used Gionino’s, of course)
- 1 package dry ranch salad dressing mix
The next morning toss the marinated chicken into a crockpot, and cook on low for 6 hours. Once the chicken is cooked, pull the breasts out of the crockpot and shred them up with two forks. Toss the meat back in and then add:
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 8 ounces of buffalo wing sauce (which is the remainder of the quart)
Cook for one hour more, and then serve on top of a toasted kaiser roll.
To make the sandwich even more amazing, add some pepper jack cheese.
