  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot sauce
  • 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1 Tb chopped scallions, for garnish


  1. Wash and dry sweet potatoes. Wrap in foil.

  2. Season chicken with garlic powder and place in one end of the slow cooker. Cover with 1/4 cup hot sauce. Place the potatoes in the other end of the slow cooker.

  3. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove the potatoes. Using two forks, roughly shred the chicken right in the pot. Add the remaining 1/4 cup hot sauce and stir well.

  4. When cool enough to handle, cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise, then divide among 4 plates. Top each half with 1/3 cup of the buffalo chicken and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the dressing. Top with the scallions and serve.
