Come home to a warm and delicious dinner for family - these chicken sandwiches are made easily in a slow cooker.

Ingredients

1
package (3.35 lb) boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 14 thighs)
1 3/4
cups Frank's™ RedHot™ Buffalo Wings Sauce
1
English (seedless) cucumber
12
large sandwich buns, split
3/4
cup crumbled blue cheese

Directions

  • 1 Spray 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in cooker. Pour 1 cup of the Buffalo wing sauce over chicken. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours.
  • 2 Remove chicken from cooker; place in medium bowl. Place strainer over another medium bowl. Strain juices from cooker; skim fat from juices. Reserve 1 1/2 cups juices. Stir chicken to separate into pieces. Return chicken to cooker; stir in reserved juices. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook about 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  • 3 Meanwhile, cut cucumber in half crosswise. With vegetable peeler, cut 1 strip of peel lengthwise from 1 cucumber half; discard strip that is mostly peel. Continue cutting thin strips lengthwise from cucumber, making about 18 strips. Repeat with other half of cucumber. Set strips aside.
  • 4 Fill each bun with 1/2 cup chicken mixture, about 3 strips of cucumber, 1 tablespoon of the remaining wing sauce and 1 tablespoon blue cheese.
