Super Easy Shredded Crockpot Buffalo Chicken

This is one of the easiest recipes I have EVER made.  And it is so delicious.  

I came across this recipe on Pinterest a few years ago.  It sounded perfect and super easy, which I was all about.  Plus, any reason to use my crockpot!  I have made a few small changes to make it work for me, which I will be sharing with you below.

This meal is perfect for a busy evening, a relaxing weekend or a party.  The prep is so minimal, you barely have to do anything.  All you need are three ingredients...THREE.  So simple and as the title says, super easy.  

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken
frozen chicken breasts
Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce
1 ranch dressing dry mix packet

Place chicken in crockpot.  I use either 3 smaller pieces or 2 large ones for 4 servings.  Empty ranch packet over chicken.  Pour in Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce.  I usually use about 1/2 cup or so.  You can add as much or as little as you want, depending on how spicy you want your chicken.  Cook on low for 8 hours.  30 minutes before you plan to eat, shred the chicken in the crockpot with two forks, then let cook for 30 minutes before eating.

This chicken is full of flavor and can be served in so many ways!  This night I served it over rice and topped with shredded sharp cheddar and avocado.  

The chicken is also just as delicious on a toasted bun or bread or in a wrap.  If serving one of these ways, I like to top with lettuce, cheese, ranch and tomatoes.  I think the chicken would even be great by itself, too!
