Buffalo Chicken Bowl
So ever since baby number three came around (about six weeks ago) I’ve been trying really hard to be more healthy. I hate dieting, counting calories, etc. (who likes it?) So I’ve been working on just changing my lifestyle to a healthy, happy state that I can maintain.
A huge aspect of making healthy eating maintainable for me is that food still has to be filling and taste good! These shredded buffalo chicken bowls manage both of those things, with flair! My sister gave me the recipe, and I have eaten them at least twice a week ever since.. guilt-free!

How to Make Healthy Buffalo Chicken Bowls
Good news – these bowls are as easy to throw together as they are delicious to eat. There are basically two simple steps.
Step 1: Cook your buffalo chicken in the crock pot.
Step 2: Mix together all your veggies in a large bowl and prepare to serve!
I like to use Slow Cooker Liners whenever I use my slow-cooker. They make cleaning up a breeze.
You can meal prep this and enjoy it all week.
Make the chicken and shred it, drain and rinse corn and beans, and store those ingredients in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat, throw some of the veggie mixture into a bowl, then slice avocado and tomatoes just before serving.
One of the best things about this recipe is that most all the carbs come from veggies! There is no rice or noodle base and guess what– you won’t even miss it! There’s a reason these healthy buffalo chicken bowls are one of our very most popular recipes and that’s because they are filling, healthy, and delicious!
