Crockpot Buffalo Chicken

Slow cooked to perfection, this simple but tasty recipe only
calls for 3 ingredients! For only $7, this batch of buffalo chicken lasted us two
meals this weekend – buffalo chicken sandwiches and buffalo chicken enchiladas.

Buffalo Chicken


lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts {can use frozen}
12 oz bottle Texas Pete Buffalo Wing Sauce
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix

can adjust the spiciness of your recipe by using mild to hot wing sauce.


chicken breasts into lined crockpot. Sprinkle ranch mix over top. Pour buffalo
sauce over chicken. Cover and cook on low for about 3 hours {or high for 2
hours}. Shred the chicken inside the crockpot with two forks. Stir to coat
chicken. Continue cooking shredded chicken in crockpot on low for about another
hour or until chicken absorbs most of the sauce. 

said this again and again, but you have to
buy these liners for your crockpot! I can’t tell you how much cleaning time it
will save you.

Husband approved. 

The following day I used the leftover buffalo chicken to make enchiladas…

Chicken Enchiladas


flour tortillas {I used soft taco size}
2 cups leftover buffalo chicken

10 oz can red enchilada sauce
1 cup 2% Mexican blend cheese, shredded
3 oz goat cheese, crumbled
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

if desired


oven to 375 degrees. Spray a small baking dish with non-stick spray. Fold a few
heaping tablespoons of shredded chicken into each tortilla, roll and add to
dish, seam side down. Pour enchilada  sauce on top of tortillas and add shredded
cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Immediately after taking enchiladas out of the
oven, add crumbled goat cheese on top. Garnish with the green onions, cilantro and avocado and serve.

pot, two meals. Not bad!

I loved the original recipe. Can't say I really enjoyed the enchiladas though. Buffalo sauce and enchilada sauce don't really go that well together, IMO. But I will definitely make this again and just have more buffalo chicken sliders the next day for lunch.
