Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
Another easy crowd-pleasing dinner! Imagine eating all the components of Buffalo chicken wings in a convenient sandwich. No deep-frying required. This is a great recipe for tailgating. Using a good quality refrigerated Blue Cheese salad dressing is the key to this delicious sandwich. Be sure to use the wing sauce and not Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce!
1 cup yellow onion, minced
1 cup celery, chopped fine
12 ounce bottle Frank's RedHot Wings Sauce (Buffalo flavor)
1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenders
8 hamburger buns or similar rolls (toasted or not - your choice)
Blue Cheese salad dressing (such as Marie's)
Blue Cheese crumbles (optional)
Mix the minced onion, celery, and wing sauce in a medium slow cooker. Stir well. Bury the chicken into the sauce. Cover, and cook on low for 6 hours. Remove the chicken pieces to a cutting board. Using two dinner forks, shred the meat. Return shredded chicken to the crockpot, stir well, and cook for an additional hour.
Dress the hamburger buns with blue cheese salad dressing, to taste, and pile a mound of the shredded chicken into each bun. Top the chicken with blue cheese crumbles, if desired. Serve immediately.
Makes eight sandwiches.
