1/2 cup sweet onion, thinly sliced
4 slices provolone cheese

Bon Appétit!

Buffalo Chicken

What You Need:

1 - 1.3 lbs chicken tenders, rinsed and dried
½ cup Franks’s Red Hot sauce
2 Tbs unsalted butter, cut into peices
1 tsp garlic powder

What To Do:

Combine chicken, hot sauce, garlic powder and butter in a crock pot. Cook on low for 4 hours.

After 4 hours of cooking, shred chicken and cook for another hour. This allows the chicken to absorb more of the sauce. Keep warm.

Thanks Melissa! I thought so too. No need to heat up the kitchen, let the crockpot do the work... The only thing I'd have changed was to use a 'stinkier' cheese.
