How to make slow cooker buffalo chicken sandwiches

I find that this is the perfect recipe to serve at a fun get together or just an average day. With it being a slow cooker recipe, there’s not a whole lot of work that goes into it, and the cooking goes on in the background while you attend to other needs. 

Not to mention all three of my teenagers ate these. Not only did they not complain, the next day they ate them for leftovers. I sat there in stunned silence watching this in awe. (They complain about the food I make a lot.) Based on this reception from the children I’ve decided that this might just be the best thing I know how to make.
