Oy. Yes, I said sammie. It sounds so much cuter than sandwiches, just has a fun lil’ ring to it, don’tcha think?
Well anyway. I love football season for many reasons. #1 may be that it gives me a reason to whip up tasty game day food and drinks on Sunday afternoons. Recently I wanted to try something a bit different and use my slow-cooker for the day. I wanted the flavor of Buffalo wings without having to actually make wings. I went to the internet and found a bunch of options, but finally settled on this version. Part of what I love about cooking is the preparation in the kitchen, the hanging out, chopping stuff up, it’s relaxing to me.
Weird, I know, most people love slow-cookers so that they can just throw a bunch in and call it day. Guess I like more of a challenge. The chicken hung out in the pot for a few hours and then it looked like this: time to shred!
Once it was shredded I put it pack in a large pan on the stove to warm things up and added some extra hot sauce (Frank’s of course) and butter (see the bowl to the top left of that picture) and the remnants of the slow-cooker
Throw this on top of a toasted bun with some blue cheese dressing…. HELLO delicious.
