Spicy Franks crockpot chicken

I've been getting a lot of positive feedback on my crockpot meals.  A lot of parents don't necessarily have the time to cook a huge meal after school and work.  I get it!  My crockpot saves me so much time and frustration!  So here is another recipe for those of you looking for a yummy meal that saves you time and effort. 

1-2 lbs of chicken.  I use boneless skinless breasts. 
1/2 big bottle of Frank's Red Hot sauce
1 packet of ranch seasoning

Put the chicken on the bottom of the crockpot.  You can spray the crockpot with non stick spray first. I usually forget this step but never have had a problem with it sticking.  Pour the packet of seasoning right over the chicken.  Then pour the Franks sauce over that.  You can use more or less, depending on how hot you want it.  It's pretty darn spicy with half of the bottle.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  When it is done, the chicken will pull apart and shred with little effort. 

I eat this plain, with a little blue cheese dressing to dip it in, or I top a salad with it.  My Husband and son love it in sandwiches with blue cheese dressing, lettuce and a wrap or roll.  It would be awesome for a bbq, too, with some corn on the cob and pasta salad on the side.  Super yummy and extremely easy to make.  Enjoy!

She doesn't do spicy. When we make this for dinner, she gets to eat her favorite.... fish sticks (gag).
