Yup, me and buffalo, we love each other.
This cold of mine is slowly killing me. Over the past few days I have been robbed of all my energy. Not to mention that my throat, ears, chest and back are killing me. Apparently my taste buds have gone into hibernation too. It's lovely, really.
Anywhoo, buffalo chicken sandwiches seemed like the perfect meal for dinner tonight. Dear God, I love my crock pot. It saves my ass all the time.
I sucked it up, put on my big girl panties and touched the raw chicken. Gross. A couple of boneless, skinless chicken breasts went into the pot.
Then I added about half of a pack of ranch mix (or about 2 teaspoons). I'm not sure it matters how much you use, there can never be too much ranch.
Careful not to spill ranch mix all over the floor or you'll get a free floor cleaning. Scary how much her tongue looks like a chewed up piece of bubble gum.
Next, I added about 1/3 of the bottle of Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce. This isn't an exact science, people. If you feel like living on the edge, pour in a little more.
So far, so good. I set the crock pot to cook on low for the next several hours while I went back to watching a Criminal Minds marathon on the couch. Too bad the Kardashians weren't on TV. I try to be as productive as possible when I'm home sick from work.
After four hours remove the chicken and shred it into small pieces. I should also mention that this step is not the most opportune time to scratch your itchy eyeball. It burns. Bad. Trust me on this.
While the chicken is out of the crock pot add a bit of butter to the buffalo sauce. Or you can be cool like me and use spreadable margarine if that is all you've got on hand.
Let it cook for another hour or so just to be sure the chicken is completely coated and delicious.
Finally, serve it up on a bun with a slice of cheese and prepare to clear your sinuses.
It is allergy season, right?
