Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
These are yumm. I liked them A LOT. I adore my crockpot, and this chicken mixture is very versatile. It worked very well in this sandwich (though because it was cooked in the crockpot, there is a fair amount of moisture, and the bottom of the croissants did get a little soggy - so a firmer bread might be a better match). They were so deliciously tangy and bright, and cooled down just a touch by the ranch drizzle.
If you want a tangy, easy chicken sandwich dish, definitely give this one a try. Also, I used the leftover chicken to make some incredible quesadillas - just add your favorite white cheese (I used provolone and Swiss) and dip in Ranch dressing after you get the tortillas golden brown. Absolutely delicious!
