Chicken Soup for the Soul and Zaycon Foods provided me with complimentary products. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
Check this out: Zaycon Fresh has teamed up with Chicken Soup for the Soul, partnering in offering more varieties of fresh and wholesome food outside of traditional retail channels. They sent over some of their products so that I could check them out and review for you guys, and they worked great together in this easy family-friendly recipe. Slow cooking the chicken in broth before shredding made it super flavorful and moist, and the Buffalo BBQ sauce turned out to be only mildly spicy, which made Mr. 8’s day.
Easy Peasy Crock Pot Buffalo BBQ Chicken Recipe
No lie, guys: I made this super easy four ingredient recipe twice over the past week, since all the boys in this house liked it so much. And, since it uses exactly half a bottle of Chicken Soup for the Soul Buffalo BBQ sauce and half the box of broth, there’s no waste if you either double the recipe or make it twice. Perfect! (Plus, both the broth and the sauce are gluten free, dairy free, meaning that Junior High Guy could enjoy his on a gluten free bun or lettuce wrap.)
Add chicken, garlic, and broth to your slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove chicken to a separate large bowl and shred. Discard broth, then add shredded chicken back to the slow cooker. Stir in Buffalo BBQ sauce and cook on low another 20-30 minutes until heated through. Serve wrapped in lettuce or on a bun!
Seriously, they devoured this
Dinner for all the boys — Crock Pot Buffalo BBQ Chicken was a little carb-y for MashupDad, but he muscled through a heaping lettuce wrap all the same. (And the BBQ sauce has no HFCS, by the way, for those of you sticking with real sugar varieties!) This recipe even inspired Junior High Guy to show us how he can cross… just one eye. How we got there, I don’t know, but a super easy weeknight family dinner for all. Good food = good conversation, and easy dinners = happy Mom.
