Buffalo Chicken - Crockpot!

If you like spicy buffalo wings or franks buffalo wing sauce, this chicken is awesome and very versitile!

1. Frozen Chicken Breast (they said 3lbs, I just filled bottom of crockpot, we cant eat that much!)
2. 1 bottle of Franks Buffalo Sauce
3. 1 package Ranch Dip Mix
4. 2 Tbl butter

1) Put #1-3 on low 6-7hrs. (or less/more depending on how much chicken you use)
2) Using 2 forks, shred chicken and return to crockpot
3) Add butter and cook low 1 more hour.

You can serve this spicy chicken however but that night I made Buffalo Sandwiches.
Toasted Hoagie roll, chicken, pepperjack cheese and ranch.
(yep, not on my diet...oh well!)

I am hoping to try it on a homemade pizza sometime, that sounds good to me!

Loaded Potato Soup - Crockpot!

MMM this was good! I forgot to take a picture though...sorry!

You will need:
1. 6 Large peeled, cut potatoes.
2. 1/2 chopped onion
3. 1 Q chicken broth
4. 3 cloves mined garlic (read container of pre-minced garlic,I think its a couple tsp.)
5. 1/4 c. butter
6. 2 1/2 tsp salt
7. 1 tsp pepper (I used more)
8. 1c. half & half
9. 1c shredded cheddar cheese
10. 3T chives (or finely cut green onion)
11. 1c. sour cream (optional
12. 8 slices bacon pieces (I cheated and used the soft bacon bits)

1) Combine #1-7 in crockpot on high 4hrs or low 8hrs. (They added bacon at end, I added it here..more flavor)
2) Mash until potatoes are coarse and soup is slightly thickened (the more you mash the thicker it will get)
3) Stir in half and half, chives and cheese
4) Serve with sour cream (optional)
