Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

I am a fan of anything Buffalo Chicken and this recipe is no exception.  With only 4 ingredients, it’s simple to make.  This recipe makes ALOT of chicken so you can either freeze half or use it up in other meals.  I used the extra in  quesadillas, nachos, tacos, over salad, and on hamburger buns.
