This is a keto slow cooker buffalo chicken recipe, but it can easily be adapted to fit any dietary needs in your family. If you want to make this recipe into buffalo chicken rice bowls, simply add cooked rice to the bottom of the bowl before assembling. I also love making quinoa and turning this into a buffalo chicken quinoa bowl.

These bowls are a perfect buffalo chicken meal prep recipe too. You can customize the bowl to your liking!

What You Will Need:

  • Crock Pot (or slow cooker)
  • Chicken Breasts
  • Buffalo Sauce – I use Frank’s Buffalo Sauce for this recipe.
  • Ranch Seasoning Packet
  • Toppings: black beans, corn, cherry tomatoes, avocado slices, ranch dressing, and blue cheese crumbles.
Ready to cook in the crock pot!

Let’s Make Buffalo Chicken Bowls!

First, to make these healthy buffalo chicken bowls, get out your handy dandy crock pot (or slow cooker). In the crock pot, stir in buffalo sauce, ranch seasoning, and minced garlic. Mix well.

Next, put boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot and season with salt and pepper. Flip the chicken over to season the other side and fully cover in sauce. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

When the chicken is finished cooking, use two forks to shred the buffalo chicken inside the crockpot. Stir the chicken to coat each piece of chicken with sauce. After this, I like to turn crock pot setting to ‘keep warm’ and let the shredded chicken marinate in the sauce for about 30 minutes before serving.

While the shredded buffalo chicken is marinating in the crock pot, prepare the toppings for your Buffalo Chicken Bowl. You can top your bowl with anything you like. I like to top my bowls with black beans corn, tomatoes, avocado slices, ranch dressing, and blue cheese.

With any leftovers, you can make a shredded buffalo chicken sandwich or a buffalo chicken burrito!

Note to self: don’t photograph this hungry! I couldn’t wait to dig in!
