Pulled Buffalo Chicken
Lately, I’ve been CRAVING pulled chicken. You know that saucy luscious barbecue with the killer thick bun that soaks up the goodness.
Well, thats not on my meal plan right now unfortunately.
However, I can make it work buffalo style with some chicken breast, a few spices, and some hot sauce!
This recipe is too darn easy and you will have chicken for the week. So follow along and make this for dinner!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 6 large chicken breasts
- 3/4 cup of hot sauce (I like Franks)
- 1.5 Tablespoons of dried Parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- small splash of butter extract (you can omit)
Makes 12 servings for 4 ounces.
Mix together the hot sauce, butter extract, and spices. I gave it a taste and it’s perfect for me. Tony and I like things with lots of garlic and onion powder so if you don’t like those flavors cut back to a half teaspoon.
Lay your chicken breasts in the crockpot and pour the sauce over the top.
Cook on low for 6 hours.
When you come back…
It shreds beautifully!
I love pulled chicken when I’m prepping for a bodybuilding competition because I eat with my eyes. Shredded chicken looks like you’re getting more 🙂

This DOES have sodium from the hot sauce, however I don’t do low sodium in the early stages of prep, but I also do not pile on the salt for every meal. 🙂
