Too good to be true crockpot chicken


f you want a guaranteed WIN on game day, Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken is it! Done deal-  it does not get any easier than this and you won’t believe the outcome. Seriously.

Can we first agree that Buffalo wings are one of the most cravable foods in the universe? Personally, when I smell that spicy, silky sauce as a plate of wings goes by my table, I can’t get it out of my mind- I just have to have them.

This recipe is a twist on Buffalo wings that both satisfies the hot sauce craving, is low calorie, is easy to make, and is certain to please any crowd.

When I first tried this recipe out, I thought there would be no way boneless, white meat chicken, cooked for hours, wouldn’t be dry and bland. I was wrong- plain and simple. It is juicy, satisfying and basically fat free. I don’t think it gets better than that.

Don’t hesitate for another second–start your slow cookers!

For a party, serve this with potato rolls, lettuce and blue cheese dressing and let everyone make their own sliders. Other great ways to use this recipe are for quesadillas with melted cheddar cheese and even as a topper on salad greens.

When I need to make this Gluten Free and KETO friendly, I use romaine lettuce to make lettuce boats.
