Crockpot Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Sliders

by Jillian Leslie on

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Sliders | CatchMyParty.com

Doesn't this look tasty? What I love about this recipe is the tender, spicy of the chicken, and the added touch of tang.

Plus the slaw brings the coolness and the melted Monterey Jack brings the yummy cheesiness.

The best part is how quick and easy this is to put together! You'll be happy for all the time saved, and your family will thank you for the delicious meal.

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Sliders

Ingredients
  • 1 lb chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1 Bottle Frank’s Buffalo sauce
  • 1 packet ranch mix
  • 2 tablespoons, salted butter
  • Monterey Jack cheese
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Dinner rolls
  • 1 bag of broccoli slaw or coleslaw
  • ⅔ cup mayo with olive oil
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
Note: I like the coleslaw dressing to be tart so I add 3-4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. If you prefer a sweeter dressing, simply reduce the amount of vinegar.

Buffalo Sauce and Ranch Mix for Ingredients | CatchMyParty.com

Directions

Combine buffalo sauce, ranch mix, and melted butter. Stir to combine. Place chicken in crockpot and pour the buffalo sauce mixture over chicken. Mix chicken to completely cover.

Cook on low for 6 hours. Using a fork, shred chicken when cooked completely. The chicken will fall apart easily when fully cooked.

Chicken mixed with Buffalo Sauce | CatchMyParty.com

While the chicken is cooking, make the broccoli slaw.

Combine mayo, sugar, apple cider vinegar and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Fold the dressing into the broccoli slaw. Chill for an hour.

Mixing ingredients for broccoli slaw | CatchMyParty.com

Place a piece of Monterey Jack cheese on each roll.

Toast the rolls until the cheese melts. Scoop shredded buffalo chicken onto each toasted roll. Add chilled broccoli slaw and blue cheese crumbles.

Quick and Easy Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

by Jillian Leslie on

Quick and Easy Molten Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

My daughter, Lainey, loves to bake.

But when I told her Bounty asked us to do a yummy baking post together, she said no -- she would only do the post if she could to do everything herself with no interference from me.

This is what happens when you have a feisty, independent, nine-year-old. I love those qualities in her, but when it comes to baking, it can cause a little trepidation in my heart.

I knew I had Bounty paper towels to help with the mess, so that calmed my nerves a little.

I opened a roll, lined the table with it, and ultimately said, yes, she could do the recipe all by herself.

(Btw, because Bounty is the most absorbent paper towel out there, I always line my table and countertops with it when we're baking. It's amazing how messy this kid can get and how Bounty can clean her up!)

We settled on our quick and easy molten chocolate lava cake recipe because it's a family favorite, it only has a few ingredients, and it is so rich, chocolatey, and delicious that I was actually excited to eat one!

First Lainey worked on buttering and flouring the ramekins.

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

Next she melted the butter in the microwave and stirred in the chocolate chips.

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

She handled cracking and separating the eggs.

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

Which of course led to this Bounty moment (one of many).

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

She mixed the eggs then added them into the chocolate.

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

And she even handled the mixer with me saying a small silent prayer. :)

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

She counted each spoonful perfectly as she divided up the batter into the four ramekins.

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

And here was one of her favorite moments.

Making Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

Out of the oven...

Quick and Easy Molten Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

And open! Loving that ooze. These are beyond delicious - rich, chocolatey and oh so decadent!

Another shot for posterity.

Then Lainey dug in...

Quick and Easy Molten Chocolate Lava Cake | CatchMyParty.com

And of course one final Bounty moment! Cleanup turned out easy.

Lainey was super proud of herself. In all honestly, I was impressed with her, too. She is growing up and becoming a really good baker (and an even better human being)!

Cleanup with Bounty | CatchMyParty.com

Thank you Bounty for making this experience fun for the both of us.

Quick and Easy Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Makes 5 ramekins (4 oz)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter plus extra or buttering the molds
  • 4 oz. dark chocolate chips
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar (we only used 2 tablespoons and it tasted delicious)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons flour, and extra for dusting
Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Butter and lightly flour four molds.

Put the butter in a medium bowl and melt it in the microwave. Add the chocolate chips to the hot butter and stir until melted. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl, and add 2 additional yolks.

Add the sugar and salt and beat or whisk until light and thick, about 1 minute.

Add egg mixture and 2 teaspoons flour to the melted chocolate; beat until combined.

Divide the batter among the molds. (We used ramekins but I think silicone molds would help you remove the cakes more easily.)

Put the molds on a baking sheet and bake until the cakes have puffed up a little bit, but they look undercooked (trust me) 6-7 minutes. Let sit for 1 minute.

Put a plate on top of the mold and carefully invert the cake onto the plate. Let it sit for 10 seconds, then carefully work the cake out of the mold.

Serve immediately!

Hearty Crockpot Minestrone Soup

by Jillian Leslie on

Hearty Crockpot Minestrone Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

Hearty Crockpot Minestrone Soup Recipe

Here's some hearty crockpot minestrone soup to keep you warm during the cold.

Minestrone soup is a classic. It’s simple, loaded with vegetables, and is just as filling as a hearty stew. There are many variations of minestrone soup, I prefer adding a leafy vegetable to mine. You can choose to substitute canned ingredients for fresh. I don’t mind using canned, it’s much quicker. :)

And the taste is just divine. Thick, rich, full-bodied with tomatoes, potatoes, and beans!

Ingredients

  • 1 can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
  • 1 small bunch of rainbow carrots, sliced
  • 4 small gold potatoes, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 3 ½ cups tomato juice
  • 2 cans white kidney beans
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 1 cup Ditalini Pasta
  • 1 can green beans
  • 1 cup chopped baby spinach
Directions

Add diced tomatoes, rainbow carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic, Italian seasonings, salt, pepper, bay leaves, broth, water and tomato juice to crockpot. Cook on low for 6 hours.

During the last half hour, add the white kidney beans, chopped spinach, zucchini, green beans and pasta. Stir to combine. Cook for 30 minutes on low.
