An absolutely delicious slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwich recipe that is super-easy and spicy.
The hubby really loves and by really loves, I mean he could eat buffalo anything for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is right up his alley. On the other hand, I love buffalo dip and chicken in moderation with a beer. It always has to be with a beer.
I think the beer just helps it go down and cut down on the spiciness just a little bit. Or it could be that I just relate buffalo anything for football, Memorial Day, and Fourth of July.
Who knows. I do know that this is one of the easiest sandwiches ever and it’s amazing. Amazing = beer and one of these sandwiches in hand. Sounds like a great meal to me!
After April came and went, I have been thinking about Memorial Day so much lately. I really cannot wait for it because we will be grilling and hanging with the family. Gosh, I love those two things together. It also means that summer is almost here – oh yeah! My fav.
I didn’t really skip over mother’s day, but I just want memorial day to be here.
What are some of the things that you look forward to during this season? Spring is definitely a busy season with so many different things happening and with the warmer weather. Gosh…I love that too.
Oh, I also forgot to mention that this is my first slow cooker and sandwich recipe on here. Yay! There will be many more to come, trust me. Love easy recipes.
Did I mention how easy this recipe is? It is crazy easy. It’s one of those meals that you can literally almost forget about and it will be done in no time. I like to set my slow cooker on super-low and let it cook for about 10 hours because the chicken is easy to pull-apart and it’s very tender.
I also used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce because I love the flavors it contains and isn’t crazy spicy. Use whatever kind your family likes. If the hubby likes things a tad bit spicier, then add a splash or two of Sirrarcha on top of his sandwich.
