When life gets busy and I feel pulled in 20 different directions, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially with the age old question “what’s for dinner” coming from a hungry family.  One of the ways I take back a little control of the craziness is with my slow cooker.  Most weeks, I use it for at least one meal and many times, my trusty helper gets used twice.
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

This week I got a little inspiration from my buddy Stacey Little, blogger & writer of the cookbook, The Southern Bite.  I took a few of the ingredients from an appetizer recipe and turned it into something for the slow cooker…buffalo chicken!  I think this recipe has a few extra lives like turning it into a hot dip, nachos or served over a baked potato.  This is one easy dish that solves so many problems…mostly, just helping to keep this Southern Soul sane.
