Buffalo Chicken Sandwich
My son, Brett, loves these buffalo chicken sandwiches.
Five ingredients, six with the bun, so simple and so delicious. Chicken breasts, ranch dressing packet, bbq sauce, Tabasco, and shredded cheddar jack cheese on a hot dog bun. These are good quick sandwiches that you can make in the crock pot. The chicken keeps in the fridge up to five days. They taste just as good heated up as they do on day one. I like to cook food on Sunday to heat up throughout the week. It helps with meal prep when we all get home, tired from a long day of work.
Use your favorite bbq sauce and as much or as little Tabasco sauce as you can handle. This recipe is easily adjusted to fit any families tastes. The chicken can also be frozen for an easy freezer meal prep.
I served these on hot dog buns with pickles and a Rhuby, rhubarb sour beer from Mankato Brewing Company. It was the perfect accompaniment. Maybe next time I’ll get real ambitious and make some home made rhubarb bbq sauce. Now that would be good! I love to try new bbq sauces and I found this F. Whitlock and Sons brand at our local grocery store. It’s really good. The jar didn’t last long. We used it on ribs, crack chicken sandwiches, bbq’s. It’s all good.
The chicken can cook in the crock pot all day. The rest of the ingredients can be added when you get home and dinner is ready in no time. Cook the chicken on low for 6 hours. Then shred the chicken and add the ranch dressing packet, bbq sauce and Tabasco at the end. Cook for another 30 min to an hour to let the flavors meld together. It’s that easy! You will love it for sure!
