I was completely scared off the first time I made these after reading through the ingredients, however since our pantry always has a few bottles of Frank’s Hot Sauce (because my hubby is addicted to Buffalo Chicken Dip), I decided to try them out a few years ago, and now they’re on our regular dinner rotation.
Here’s a quick warning though: this recipe is just a wee bit on the spicy side (obviously!), so if you tend to shy away from spicy foods try out these yummy-slow-cooker-not-spicy-at-all barbecue sandwiches. 😉
To pinch those pennies on dry ranch packets, we use this homemade mix.
I’m super excited because not only is this good for you, you can seriously pinch some pennies on this recipe this week. Check this out:
- Boneless skinless chicken breast $1.67/lb this week at Fresh Thyme or Sprouts
- $.50/1 Frank’s Red Hot Sauce coupon should make it around 9¢ if your store doubles, 59¢ without coupon doubles
- Watch for rolls on clearance ~ I lucked into those whole wheat dinner rolls at Kroger for just $.88 and they were perfect
