Time is a precious commodity these days. Dinner this week was prepped while wearing my three week old son in his Ergo carrier. I managed to get Salsa Chicken done for Monday night and then got started on Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken.
These are both great recipes for anyone who is strapped for time- minimal ingredients and practically no hands on time means that dinner is ready before 9 pm. Heck, you might even get to eat it with two hands if you're lucky (and the baby is asleep).
The original recipe called for lettuce wraps, but I figured salads were an easy one-handed option.
The night before, I defrosted chicken in the crock pot insert with chopped onion and chicken broth. Love Crock Pots with removable inserts. Makes it so much easier to get a head start when you don't have to refrigerate your entire Crock Pot. Who has room for that in their fridge??
Cooked on high for 4 hours.
Bust out the Buffalo sauce and douse the chicken liberally. I used 3/4 cup, but feel free to adjust to your own taste.
Enjoy! This turned out to be a super healthy and hearty meal. This chicken would also be phenomenal on a pizza, in a pita, or even added to an omelet. The possibilities are endless if you love Buffalo sauce!
