Low Carb Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken
Low Carb Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken,the perfect easy meal idea for parties, gathering, tailgates, or dinner!
- 2 ½ lbs Chicken - 4 skinless breasts
- ½ cup Chicken Broth
- 1 cup Buffalo Sauce - recipe included or use bottled
- 2 tbs Butter
- optional- seasonings, pepperoni, sausage, peppers, beans, tomatoes, cheese.
Place the chicken in the slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, combine together the broth and the buffalo sauce. Pour this over the chicken making sure that the chicken gets entirely covered with the liquid. Season as desired.
Slow cook the chicken for eight hours on low stirring occasionally or until done (on high for about four hours if you are looking to cut down on time).
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and use two forks or your hands to shred it. Then return the chicken to slow cooker and stir in the butter and any optional add-ins. Keep the chicken on warm until you are ready to serve, stirring occasionally.
I mentioned that I use skinless chicken breast in this recipe.
Feel free to use both light and dark or simply just dark meat if you prefer.
I also mentioned that the ease of this recipe has to do with the sauce that we slow cook the chicken in.
I have provided a simple basic buffalo sauce recipe with this recipe (see post) that will allow you to control the ingredients as well as personalize this dish. However, you can alternatively use a pre-made buffalo sauce instead (check the ingredients to make sure that it is sugar free).
