Starving Student: Burnin’ buffalo chicken
For the Towson students living on or off campus, having a slow cooker is essential.
A slow cooker meal can get started early in the morning, and by the time classes are done, dinner is ready to go. And most of the time, slow cooker meals can be held of leftovers for lunch or dinner later on in the week.
This recipe for pulled buffalo chicken is an easy way to make dinner that will eventually turn into three or four meals.
To make this pulled buffalo chicken, mix all the ingredients in a slow cooker and set to medium heat for roughly six hours. At that time, turn it down to low heat and the chicken will easily pull apart.
I like to serve this chicken on a hamburger bun with coleslaw, but french fries and corn are also good sides for this dish.
Once completed, you’ll come away with a delicious buffalo-flavored chicken that is very similar to BBQ pulled chicken but is much easier and cheaper to make.
Each serving will cost you around $5, depending upon how cheap you can get the chicken. It’s been my experience that Shoppers has the best price on meat, and tenders would also work in this situation since they are pulled apart anyway.
