Sounds almost fancy doesn't it? Naw, this is just a little something I saw on Pinterest then came up with my own recipe!
This came together so fast, it was perfect for a Thursday evening dinner on the fly. It was my first time poaching chicken too, can you believe it? I had no idea what I was missing. Poaching the chicken was perfect for this because I needed to get it shredded and didn't want any hard pieces. I even put the chicken in a little frozen and it came out perfectly.
Give this recipe a try and make extra chicken and saw, I've got something even better to do with these left overs! The buffalo chicken saga continues...

**Remember, make extra, I have a great recipe coming with the leftovers!!!!**
Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches with a Celery Blue Cheese Slaw
For the chicken:
4 Chicken breasts
1 bottle (or 2 1/2 cups) Franks Red Hot Sauce or your favorite buffalo sauce
2 tablespoons butter
For the slaw:
1 bag cole slaw (or about 3 cups)
2 ribs of celery, coarsely chopped
1 cup ranch dressing (or blue cheese)
1/4 cup (or more to your liking) blue cheese crumbles
Hamburger buns for serving
Start by bringing a medium sauce pan filled 1/2 way with water to a boil. Add the chicken and cook for about 10 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle.
Remove the chicken from the pan and shred with two forks. Return the chicken to the pan and add the butter and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer and cover while you prepare the slaw. This mixture can simmer on the stove up to about an hour. If it looks like it is getting dry add a bit more hot sauce.
Combine the cole slaw mix, celery, dressing and blue cheese crumbles together. Add additional dressing to your liking.
Assemble the sandwiches with the chicken on the bottom topped with slaw.
Enjoy with a cold beer : )
