Foodie Friday: Buffalo-Ranch Chicken


Day to day life is crazy and I don’t always have time or energy to spend a lot of time creating a meal full of prep or have time to watch the stove. Some days I turn to an underutilized kitchen gadget: the crock pot (slow cooker).  

This recipe is super easy and quite versatile. All you need is three ingredients (for the initial chicken – to make a meal others are required).



  1. Place defrosted chicken breasts in crock pot.
  2. Sprinkle entire ranch dressing packet over chicken. Pour entire bottle of Red Hot sauce over the chicken.
  3. Flip the chicken a couple of times to coat both sides with seasonings.
  4. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  5. Once the done, get two forks and shred the chicken

The chicken is done, now what to do with it? My favorite is the most recent way I prepared it. And yes, it is just as simple as making the chicken.img_2141

Additional Ingredients:


From here it is simple, build your sandwich and enjoy. We paired this recipe with sliced radishes instead of chips to be a bit healthier.  

The spice from the chicken pairs well with the sweetness of the bread.


This chicken can also be enjoyed in a wrap or on a salad. Let me know how you like it. Happy Friday!
