This easy slow cooker recipe really only requires 2 ingredients – chicken and buffalo wing sauce. Add onion and garlic to the slow cooker for extra flavor, but it’s not absolutely necessary. I used free-range organic chicken, and it was 1 package boneless skinless breasts (~1 pound) and 1 package boneless skinless thighs (~1 3/4 pound).
Use this chicken to complete a meal – make lettuce wraps, put it on a salad, top a pizza with it (try this cauliflower pizza crust), or whatever else your heart desires.

- 1 bottle buffalo wing sauce
|Place chicken, onion, garlic, and water in a slow cooker and cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8 hours.|
|Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with 2 forks. Remove some of the onions from the slow cooker if you'd like and add to the chicken. Mix sauce with chicken, adding enough to coat the chicken but not so much that it is swimming in sauce.|
