Anyway... onto the recipe part. So... I usually only work 2 or 3 days a week. I usually work the evening shift at the hospital so that my husband is home with our son, while I'm at work and vice versa. I don't think I'd enjoy that routine if I worked full-time, since I'd never see my husband, but it's not bad a couple days a week.
Well, the other evening girl sprained her knee earlier this week, so I'm picking up some extra shifts and am working Wednesday-Sunday. The question of course is: what's for dinner? The Working Girl (even the part-time one) cannot live without the Crock-Pot. It is a life-saver and a must-have. Who knows what my husband would come up with to feed our son if I didn't plan something out on those nights I'm at work. Sooo... here is one of our favorites and it would work for girls who work a regular day shift also:
Buffalo Chicken Dinner
4 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 cups BBQ sauce (your favorite variety!)
1/2 (1 oz) package dry ranch salad dressing mix
2 tablespoons butter
6 crusty rolls, split lengthwise (or hamburger buns)
Combine and Cook:
- Place the frozen chicken breasts into a slow cooker, and pour in 1 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce (add a little water if your BBQ is very thick) and the ranch dressing mix. Cover and cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours.
- Once the chicken has cooked, add the butter and shred the meat finely with two forks.
- Pile the meat onto the hoagie rolls, and splash with the remaining BBQ sauce to serve.
