Surprisingly Healthy Shredded Buffalo Chicken

My favorite thing during happy hour (other than a pitcher of beer) is crispy, spicy buffalo wings. Unfortunately, fried buffalo wings are also ridiculously unhealthy. I use this recipe to save on fat and calories but maintain that great buffalo taste. It is great for sandwiches, salads, pizza or even nachos!


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 8oz of a 12 oz bottle of buffalo wing sauce (I like Franks RedHot Wing Sauce – save the rest for topping off your sandwich!)
  • 1 package of dry ranch dressing mix

How to make it

  1. Place the chicken in the crock pot and pour in about 8oz of wing sauce.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.
  3. Shred the meat and add the dry ranch dressing mix.

Helpful Hints

  • Serve on rolls with provolone cheese and iceberg lettuce.
  • Add to your favorite pizza with blue cheese (click here for a quick pizza dough recipe)
  • Serve it on your favorite greens with blue cheese or ranch dressing
  • Substitute for beef on your nachos
