a quick recipe worth sharing :)

This is so easy its frightening :)

Do any of you remember the amazing buffalo ranch chicken sandwich from Applebees?  It was my go to fave- and I'm pretty sure I had at least one a week while pregnant with Maeve. 

Unfortunately, they've taken it off their menu (boo Applebees)...

But... I have an awesome *EASY* and healthier (I think?) recipe that's almost just as good ;)

Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches
-Chicken breasts (we use about 4)
-bottle of your favorite wing sauce
-DRY ranch dressing (in those little packets)
-your fave hoagie buns
-your fave cheese
-any other sandwich toppings you like (lettuce, tomato, etc.)

Mix the wing sauce and half the packet of dry ranch dressing together- throw your chicken in the crockpot, and cover with the mixture (put a little on the bottom to coat the pot before putting the chicken in).  Cook on low 6-7 hours.   After the chicken is done, take a fork and shred it- it should pull apart and shred super easily.

Next, get out your buns, sandwich toppings and cheese and make your very own buffalo ranch chicken sandwich :)  it is SO SO good.  And its what we're having for dinner tonight ... again.... :)

I serve it with some healthy celery sticks & ummm.. fries ;)

Sound yummy...Im gonna make these tomorrow night. What kind of wing sauce do you use?

The first time I made it I used sweet baby rays wing sauce and it was really good- but not enough zing... So today I used some fancy kind called Louisiana hot wings or something like that... I hope its not too spicy! But my house does smell soooooo good :)

I have SBR's wing sauce here, but I will have to check the market for the Louisana stuff. Thanks for the recipe, sounds super good!
