If you like buffalo chicken, this is a MUST MAKE recipe.
Why is it called “bust-a-gut”? Well, you won’t want to stop eating it.
The best part? Amazing simple. I adapted this recipe from What’s Cookin with Mary.
Put on your easy pants, because this easy. And make sure they have an elastic waist band.
- 2 pounds of raw chicken breast(trim all fat off)
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups Frank’s wing sauce (or your favorite wing sauce)
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 5 cloves garlic(peeled and lightly smashed)
- Additional wing sauce for sandwich
Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker, in a single layer if possible.
Tuck garlic cloves around chicken. Cube butter and place on top of chicken.
Pour wing sauce over chicken.
Place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours. After six hours, shred chicken.
It should be so tender that you can just shred it right in the slow cooker. My chicken was so tender I couldn’t lift it out of the pot without it all falling apart.
Stir chicken and remaining sauce together and cook for one more hour on low.
Serve on bun with your choice of topping.
I broiled bleu cheese on the buns for 3-4 minutes to make it warm and bubbly.
To die for.
I served our sandwiches with a nice side of asparagus.
