  1. I substituted chicken breasts because I don't care for dark meat, but otherwise made this exactly as written. It was different but good- like a warm bowl of melty buffalo wings! I ate the left overs over lettuce and veggies w/ blue cheese dressing as a taco salad of sorts.
  2. Wow, surprisingly good! :) I too used chicken breasts that I put in whole and shredded them near the end of the cooking. I topped with sour cream, cheese, and green onions. Really good and mild flavor - even my 3 year old tried this! Thanks for sharing.
  3. Delish! I used 1/2 cup buffalo sauce, added some salt, and cooked on high for 2 1/2 hours. So good!
  4. This is a good chili recipe, but not a great dish for us. I added only about 1.5 # chicken breast because that is what I had. The only other changes were adding a whole cup wing sauce because we like the extra kick and I added some garlic powder and hot sauce while it was cooking. The flavors are good, but I was not thrilled with it.
  5. Excellent! I use chicken breast instead of thighs and turned out great.
