Slow-Cooker Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
Add kick to juicy chicken thighs by simmering them in a tangy sauce until they're tender enough to shred, then serve on buns for flavorful sandwiches for lunch. You can also use the chicken filling in tacos or in a salad with blue cheese dressing. This chicken recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Slow Cooker" (Clarkson Potter).
Cooking chicken breasts slowly in simmering water ensures they'll be tender, not rubbery. Onion and salt in the water add flavor without fat. If you have them on hand, you can also toss in a bay leaf, lemon peel, or whole peppercorns to add even more flavor to these Poached-Chicken-Salad Sandwiches.
Grilled Salmon Sandwiches With Herbed Mayonnaise
Herbed mayo offers a cool counterpoint to the smoky rub patted onto the fillets.
