Happy Monday, friends! Another weekend passed by in the blink of an eye and here we are at the start of the week again!
Friday night Kaydin and I started the Halloween festivities early and hit up Night Eyes at the Blank Park Zoo. We have gone in previous years but always during the day. Going at night added a whole different element to the event.
Our Sunday was unexpectedly packed full which led to my not getting anything accomplished like I'd hoped on Sunday. That led to it being a packed Monday night. It had me wishing I had this crockpot meal waiting for us after the work and school day.
I made these sandwiches a couple weeks ago. I've made buffalo chicken before but only added the hot sauce in the past. This time I bumped it up a notch and added some ranch dressing and blue cheese to the crockpot. It was a good choice. :) It gave the chicken that much more flavor and depth.
Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
3/4 cup buffalo sauce
1/4 cup light ranch dressing
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese, plus extra for topping sandwich, if desired
Whole wheat buns
1. Place chicken in crockpot. Cook on low for about 5 hours.
2. Drain liquid. Shred chicken with two forks. Add buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and blue cheese.
3. Cook on high for 1 hour or until heated through.
4. Place 1/2 cup chicken mixture on bun. Top with blue cheese, if desired.
This is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight when the last thing you want to do is come home and cook!
It's definitely crockpot season. What's your favorite thing to make?
