Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with Bleu Cheese Coleslaw

This one is so easy, it almost doesn’t qualify for it’s own post. As easy as it was, it turned out fantastic. I don’t use a slow cooker often, but this makes me wonder why.

I made the recipe even easier by using store bought slaw mix. It’s fine in a pinch. We served it with Alexia fries and onion rings, which made it even more easy.

We only used two large chicken breasts which we ate off twice. You could easily double that and just add a little more buffalo sauce and the whole seasoning packet.

Hat tip to LOTS of other bloggers and websites that posted similar recipes for the buffalo chicken.

Ingredients – Buffalo Chicken

Ingredients – Bleu Cheese Coleslaw

  • Salt and pepper
  • Shredded cabbage
  • Coleslaw dressing (store bought)
  • Bleu cheese

Ingredients – Other

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Place chicken in your slow cooker. Dust with the Ranch dressing packet, pour in 3/4 of the buffalo sauce and set to low. Cook six hours. (Note: you can also set the slow cooker for high and cut the cook time in half.)
  2. In a large bowl add the cabbage, bleu cheese (add some, taste and add more if needed to taste) and less of the dressing then you think you’ll need, toss to combine. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Add more dressing just before serving if need be. Place in the refrigerator.
  3. After six hours, using two forks, shred the chicken. Add a tablespoon or two of the olive oil (you could use butter if you like) and more buffalo sauce, if you like. Mix together and let it cook another 30 minutes to an hour.
  4. If you are making the fries/onion rings, follow the instruction on the package. If you want to make your own fries try these baked French fries (another slow cooker recipe as well).
  5. Just before serving, toast the buns.
  6. To serve, pile some chicken and coleslaw on the bun and enjoy. That’s it, super easy.

Super Easy Guacamole Recipe

Super Easy Guacamole Recipe

I love guacamole. It is so easy to make and very healthy.

My wife wasn’t a big fan of avocado or guacamole. I think it was because she had never tasted the real fresh made stuff. Well, at a local favorite restaurant called Papas and Beer they make it table side. Guess what? Now she likes it, a lot.

Below is my go to guacamole recipe. I like it a little spicy so I leave the stem and seeds of the jalapeno in. I also like it slightly chunky, not huge chunks but I don’t like it overly mushy. I don’t add tomatoes which a lot of recipes do, and I add cilantro because it is awesome.

Best advice is pick good avocados and make sure they get covered with the lime juice otherwise it’ll be a ugly brown mess.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/2 large bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Bag of your favorite tortilla chips (I love the Tostitos® Multigrain)
DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut avocados in half, remove the seed and scoop into a mixing bowl. Immediately cut lime in half and cover the avocado with the juice.
  2. To the avocado, add onion, jalapeno, cilantro and salt and pepper to taste. Mix to a consistency that you like.
  3. Enjoy
