Buffalo Chicken Sauce over Rice
- Ready In:
- 2 (10 ounce) cans canned chicken, drained and flaked
- 1 (8 ounce) box cream cheese
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup blue cheese, crumbles
- 3⁄4 cup hot sauce (I use Frank's)
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup white wine (or chicken broth)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 (15 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, lightly drained
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 2 celery ribs, diced
- 1⁄2 tablespoon butter
- 3 medium chicken breasts, cut up
- rice, cooked and used for serving
- Mix the canned chicken, cream cheese, shredded cheddar, blue cheese crumbles, milk, white wine, garlic powder and seasoned salt in a crock pot over high. Cover and set aside, stirring occasionally, so it melds together while cooking the rest of dinner.
- WHEN IT IS ALL SOFTENED AND MIXED TOGETHER, REDUCE HEAT TO LOW OR WARM.
- In a large saucepan, cook diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Heat to bubbly over MEDIUM. Reduce heat to LOW, cover and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
- While tomato sauce mixture is simmering, heat butter in a small saucepan over MEDIUM-HIGH heat. Add celery and saute for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir into crock pot mixture.
- Remove the tomato sauce from heat and stir into crock pot mixture. Recover crock pot and allow to continue cooking.
- Rinse the tomato sauce pan and heat over MEDIUM heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink and juices run clear. Don't worry about draining if it's watery.
- Add chicken to crock pot mixture. Stir to combine.
- Serve over rice or any other pasta. If it still seems too thick, thin the sauce with more milk or white wine.

The most defining trait in my life is that I am a mother to two wonderful boys (Tyler, 20 and Zayden, 9). I live in the little college town of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. It is the most wonderful place to live as it's nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and along the beautiful Susquehanna River. Seeing that we live in Central Pennsylvania, our family is also a bunch of HARDCORE Penn State Nittany Lion fans! We are...PENN STATE! I was lucky enough to be given tickets to see Joe Paterno win his 400th game as the head coach of the football team. I cried like I did when my children were born. The other love of my life is cooking. I didn't really start trying to cook until I was 20, but believe me I have made up for lost time! I absolutely adore baking and I do it whenever I can. I love making Christmas cookies and I have begun hosting our extended families at our home for Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. So far so good. I love food.com because it allows me to expand my culinary skills and my recipe box with ideas from other people like me. There is something for everyone and I have been a loyal member since 2005.
