Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

I am kind of in love with buffalo chicken. I think my obsession started in college when we used to go to Applebee's on a weekly basis for half-off appetizers. My appetizer of choice was always the boneless buffalo chicken wings. But, now that I cook my own food, I make my own buffalo chicken meals. This one is extremely easy and one I have made multiple times. In fact, I just made it for our fantasy football draft lottery party. I think it was a hit with our friends! This recipe has also been making its way across the blog-o-sphere so I'm sure you may have seen it already, but just in case you haven't, here it is. This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled as well. And I welcome the leftovers because they can be turned into other great meal ideas, like buffalo chicken pizza or quesadillas. It also freezes well in case you want to make up a big batch and then have another meal to go later!
