Crockpot Buffalo Chicken

This weekend we had Jacks mom, sisters and grandma over for lunch and since I know they all love Buffalo Wings, I decided to try and make some crockpot buffalo chicken using chicken breasts and wing sauce.

I didn't have a recipe, so I just winged it. I just threw it together in the crockpot and it was amazing! Everyone was pleased.

For some reason though, I noticed the Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce came out slightly hotter in the crockpot than when I use it for actual wings. I'm not quite sure why this happened, but still it was good.

Ingredients:
6 frozen chicken breasts
1 small bottle Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce

Instructions:
Place ingredients in crockpot and cook on HIGH 2-4 hours or LOW 6-8 hours. While chicken is still in crockpot, shred chicken with two forks.

We did variations on how each of us wanted to eat this meal.

I decided to eat over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce, 1/4 cup cooked quinoa, sliced celery, carrots and a little bit of corn. If you want to calm down the spiciness of the buffalo sauce, you can put some blue cheese or ranch on it. I chose a little ranch for my salad. If you like the spice, use no dressing and eat as is.
