"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through.

"It's as good as everyone says! I used a boneless chuck roast (3 lb) and cut the ranch dressing in half. I added an additional 1/4 cup water. I cooked it 9 hours.

"I've made this twice now with only the slightest tweaks (added a couple teaspoons of 'Italian Seasoning' mix from our co-op). It's absolutely perfection.
