After shredding

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken

Update: This recipe is now available on YouTube as well: Crockpot Buffalo Chicken

This is a great crockpot recipe because you can just set it up and forget about it. I got the recipe from a friend on MFP (Go Buckeye’s!).

Crockpot setupThrow in some frozen chicken breasts.  Add the hot sauce.

Ingredients doneAdd the seasoning and its ready to go!

Set crockpot for 6 hoursSet the crockpot on low for 6 hours. My crockpot has this cool feature where you can set it for however long you want it to run on a specific setting and then it will automatically transfer to warm when its hit time.  So you can make a roast that cooks for 6 hours but still start it before an 8 hour work day.

After shreddingAfter it has cooked for 6 hours, you need to shred the meat.  I normally do this with two forks and just pull on the meat.  Once it is pulled, add butter to the mixture and put it back in the crockpot. Cook for an additional 1 hour.

Cuisinart PSC-650 6-1/2-Quart Crockpot
Useful for set it and a forget it meals where you place all the items into the crockpot and let it rip! Most crockpots use a ceramic, dishwasher safe bowl that’s heated from the outside to a low temperature which allows the ingredients to simmer for hours.
Victorinox Fibrox 8″ Chef’s Knife
You really only need one good knife. This one is it. America’s Test Kitchen rated it the number one budget knife!

Non-slip Cutting Board
Let’s face it, keto involves a lot of prep. You’ve got to slice all those vegetables, cut up all that meat and not just any old board will do. Make sure to grab yourself a nice non-slip one for the kitchen!
