Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Superbowl is this weekend, and although I won't really take part in the festivities, that doesn't mean I need much of an excuse to make buffalo chicken anything.  Now seemed like a fantastic time though!  This is perfect for a party because you just throw everything in a crock-pot and walk away!

Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Serves 6

4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
8 oz hot sauce (I use Frank's Red Hot--this was a bit on the spicy side so reduce and add broth if you don't like it too spicy)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Cheese (I like blue cheese with this!)
  1. Place chicken breasts in a crock-pot.
  2. Mix hot sauce, garlic, and spices together until well combined.
  3. Add sauce to crock-pot.
  4. Cook chicken on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  5. When chicken is done, shred with a fork.
  6. Mix milk and cornstarch together until dissolved.
  7. Add cornstarch mixture to shredded chicken and cook for another 30 minutes on high until thickened.
  8. Serve shredded buffalo chicken on buns with cheese.
If you are as obsessed with buffalo chicken as I am, I have a few more recipes.  If you want a healthy, cold salad see the recipe here, or if you prefer a dip (not very healthy but still delicious!) see the recipe here.
