We happen to be a house full of wing-lovers so these sandwiches were a huge success the other night and won rave reviews from my hungry boys.
Dinner doesn’t get any easier than this, trust me. These sandwiches take all of 5 minutes to throw together in your slow cooker and taste fabulous. If you love wings like we do, and can handle a little kick then you really, really need to make these. They are dripping with flavor (and I mean that literally) and make an incredibly easy dinner. I don’t know about you, but I happen to love a meal that I can throw in my slow cooker and walk away and not have to worry all day about what I’m going to fix for dinner.
I might add one suggestion that I think I will try next time. Try placing the cheese on the bottom of the roll first, and then the chicken followed by the lettuce and dressing. I think the cheese may help keep the bottom of the roll from getting completely soggy from all the yummy wing sauce.
- 1 (12 ounce) jar Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
- 2 Tbsp. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
- 5 chicken breasts , about 2 1/2-3 pounds (frozen is fine)
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 8 ranch type rolls
- 8 slices cheddar cheese
- Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing
- Blur Cheese Crumbles
- Shredded Lettuce or chopped celery
In a small saucepan, combine the bottle of Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce and Hidden Valley Ranch Mix. Stir over medium heat until well combined, heat until its bubbly.
Place 5 chicken breasts into your slow cooker. Pour the hot sauce mixture over the top of the chicken.
Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 4 hours (or until your chicken is cooked through and shreds easily).
When chicken is done, shred the chicken with two forks (go ahead and leave it in the slow cooker to do this). Add 2 Tbsp. of butter and stir.
To assemble sandwiches; place chicken on top of roll, top with a slice or two of cheddar cheese, some lettuce and blue cheese crumbles (if using). Spread blue cheese or ranch dressing on top half of the roll.
