Love Wings, Hate the Mess

So, why not figure out a way to get all the flavor you get out of a huge basket of buffalo wings without having to deal the huge mess that comes with it? That is what this recipe is all about. It's easy, quick and can easily be adapted from mild to hot, depending on personal tastes. For us, I use the amount of sauce in the recipe and it comes out mild enough I can eat it, and then Adam adds more to his for more heat. Even though these are made in the skillet stove top, I see no reason why you couldn't make batches and then use the crock pot to keep them warm, if feeding a crowd. So the next time you need a quick week night supper, or a party food for the big game, give these a try!

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
4 cups chicken, boiled and shredded (about 4 boneless breasts)
Large jar Franks hot sauce
Blue Cheese dressing
1 TBS butter
salt and pepper

Melt butter in skillet and add shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until edges are brown and crisp, usually around 8 minutes. Add sauce to taste, a little at time. The meat will absorb it some, so a little extra doesn't hurt. I usually use half the bottle. Let simmer a few minutes until flavors mix.

Serve on buns with blue cheese dressing.

You're welcome. It is show easy and so flavorful! I will admit I don't usually take the time to shred the chicken, I just finely dice it. Also, I don't boil it anymore. I roast it in the oven first :)
