Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Bleu Cheese Slaw


Welcome to football Sunday! 

I have the perfect recipe for your Sunday Night Football party tonight.  

Just put some chicken in a slow cooker, so you can enjoy this beautiful afternoon and 
just add the fixings for the game tonight.  


Just start with a package of chicken tenders, this was 1.75# in the slow cooker with 
1 cup of chicken broth along with 
1 tbsp minced garlic, 
1 tsp of onion powder and 
fresh ground black pepper. 

Let this cook for 3-5 hours on high. 


And the chicken was cooked. 


From the slow cooker to the plate for shredding. 


Juicy tender meats shred so easily after a few hours in the slow cooker. 

My new go-to starting ground for dinner. 
When in doubt, throw some meat in a slow cooker and I'll figure out the rest later. 


The chicken was placed back in the slow cooker, 
be sure to drain the cooking broth first. 

About 1/2 cup of Hot Sauce and 1/2 stick of butter were added to sauce things up a bit. 


Stirred it all up a bit and kept it on low until we were ready to eat.  


The ultimate topping for these tacos is bleu cheese slaw. 
Perfect combination of familiar flavors and textures.  

All you need to do is stir up 3 simple ingredients...
3 cups of shredded cabbage, 
1 cup of bleu cheese dressing and 
1/2 cup of bleu cheese crumbles.
