BUFFALO CHICKEN SLIDERS (Adapted from Six Sisters Stuff)
It gets no easier than this recipe!
4-6 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (12 ounce) bottle Frank’s Wings Buffalo Sauce
1 packet Ranch Dip Mix (see note below)
2 tablespoons butter
Put frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker. Pour the whole bottle of buffalo sauce over chicken breasts and sprinkle ranch packet on top.
Cook on low 6-7 hours. Using two forks, shred the chicken and return it to the crock pot. Add butter, stir and cook on low for an additional hour.
Serve on buns and serve with a side of ranch or blue cheese dressing (see below). Would be great with crumbled blue cheese on top along with pickles and cole slaw! This dish also can be made a couple of days in advance and then reheated at the tailgate.
***Much better than the processed packet of ranch dressing – make your own! Here’s the recipe:
1/3 cup dry buttermilk (you CAN omit if you don’t have this ingredient on hand)
2 Tbsp. dried parsley
1 1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. dried onion flakes
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. dried chives
1 tsp. salt
Mix together in a food processor until finely ground. (To Make Ranch Dressing: Combine 1 Tbsp. seasoning mix with 1/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup milk, and whisk to combine. You can also substitute Greek yogurt for the mayo.)
***Great blue cheese dressing:
2 1/2 ounces blue cheese
3 tablespoons buttermilk
3 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, mash blue cheese and buttermilk together with a fork until mixture resembles large-curd cottage cheese. Stir in sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and garlic powder until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
