• Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken

    When you have a boat load of men in your house watching sports on 3 TV’s, what do you do? You make buffalo chicken! Serve as a game day snack or as a meal! This is the easiest, tastiest, moist buffalo chicken and although it’s not as “clean” as I would like (Franks Hot Sauce), I did give it a healthy flare! No deep frying over here! Serve atop romaine or butter lettuce cups or as I did spooned on top of a butter lettuce salad with some blue cheese crumbles and a drizzle of light blue cheese dressing. I recently found Bolt House Farms Blue Cheeses dressing (In the fridge section of the produce aisle) which is made with yogurt. It’s yummy! Thanks for the recipe Jill! Everyone enjoyed!

    Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken

    Ingredients:

    • 4 thick boneless and skinless chicken breasts
    • 2 celery stalks, chopped
    • 2 carrot sticks, chopped
    • 1 onion, chopped (I used onion powder because I didn’t have an onion)
    • 1 garlic clove
    • salt & pepper to taste
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 32 oz. low sodium chicken broth/stock
    • 1 1/2 cups franks hot sauce (I used 3/4 cup regular & 3/4 cups hot)
    • romaine lettuce or butter lettuce
    • optional: blue cheese crumbles, blue cheese dressing, carrot & celery sticks

     

    Directions:

    Spray crock pot with cooking spray (easy cleanup)

    Place chicken in crock pot

    Season with salt & pepper

    Add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaf

    Cover with chicken broth

    Cook on high for 3 1/2 hours

    Remove chicken, shred and discard (or save for soup) whats left in the crock pot.

    Place shredded chicken in a bowl and add the hot sauce, mixing until well coated.

    Serve with romaine or butter lettuce cups, blue cheese and dressing on the side so that everyone can make their own or serve on top of a butter lettuce salad with blue cheese and blue cheese dressing.

    Other serving options: healthy crackers, chips, tacos or wraps.

    enJOY!
