Okay, let me say that I don't think just giving this 5 stars will express how much my fiance loved these sandwiches. Direct quotes from him: "This is the best thing to ever come out of a crockpot in the history of cooking", "I would eat my way out of a bathtub of this". LOL! Seriously, if we weren't already engaged, this stuff would have made him propose on the spot. :) The only change I made was to shred the chicken after 5 hours and then put it back into the crockpot to let it soak up all the sauce for another 2 hours. I served the meat on toasted Kaiser rolls with melted pepperjack cheese. Thank you very much, needless to say this will be a VERY regularly made recipe in our house! :)
This was ok. I love hot wings so I have to say I missed the skin. I think this dish could use a bit of thigh meat, perhaps, to give a bit more chicken flavor & fat to it. (As my husband would say 'fat is where the flavor is'.) I also think it could do with a little less cook time because it does (especially with all white meat) dry out the meat and the end result for me was sauced dry bland breast meat. I think I'll try it again with the modifications I mentioned.
I would give this more stars if I could! This was sooooo good!! I "kind of" doubled the recipe. I used a 2.5# bag of frozen boneless chicken tenders and tossed in two 12 oz. bottles of Frank's Wing Sauce, a whole package of ranch dressing mix & 1/4 cup butter. I let it all cook together instead of adding sauce and butter at the end. This was plenty saucy and I think I will go with 3# of chicken next time (the leftovers are great)! Also great to use on the buffalo chicken pizza recipe on this site. I served this on crusty french bread with cheese and pepper rings. I am making this for the next party that comes around and I know it will be a hit. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
This went over amazingly well with hubby and his buddies. I had a problem with my hot sauce evaporating about half way through the process, so I ended up adding the rest of the 23 oz bottle, which made it a bit too spicy . I enjoyed the little zip the ranch powder added to the chicken. Next time I make this I'll probably use some chicken broth for the first half of the cooking time and then add the hot sauce. I served the sandwiches with colby-jack cheese, shredded lettuce, and ranch dressing. I'm planning to use the leftovers for Buffalo Chicken pizza. Thanks for another great variation on buffalo chicken.
Love, LOVE this recipe. I've been making the same thing ever since I found Frank's Hot sauce in the store! I always eat mine with lettuce and provolone cheese! These blow the restaurant version of the buffalo chicken sandwich out of the water. Another fun version I've come to love as well, is using the chicken to make buffalor chicken pizzas that are amazing!
This was good, it had a nice kick, my husband really liked it. Next time I will add some blue cheese dressing on top when I serve it or buy some prepackaged coleslaw mix and mix it with blue cheese dressing to serve on the sandwiches.... it just needs a little something added to it. Good for game nights and very, very easy. This will be a keeper. I used franks red hot buffalo wing sauce and hidden valley ranch dressing pack.
These were really good, DH loved them. Substituted regular ranch for dry mix and it was still really good.
I gave it 5 stars b/c DH loved, loved, loved it! He is the bigger fan of buffalo wings around here. Used a 4qt crock, 3 lg. breasts and Frank's sauce. Super easy, moist and even DH assembled it while I was at work today. I used fresh chicken so it only took about 4 hours on low.
