Because she doesn’t eat a lot of meat on campus—and I don’t blame her, remembering the questionable state of meat in my own college dining hall—I try to serve it when she’s over. Most recently, it was by way of these Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, a recipe I pulled from Everyday Food magazine when it was still in print (anyone else really missing it?!).
You brown the chicken and sauté the peppers and onions to maximize flavor before throwing it all in a slow cooker for a few hours. Die hard buffalo chicken lovers will want to up the hot sauce—the ¼ cup was enough to keep everyone happy but we would’ve welcomed even more heat! Serve on buns with blue cheese, if desired, and eat, preferably while listening to ‘tales of a college freshman’, if you’re lucky!
