Crock Pot Buffalo Ranch Chicken and No Mayo Coleslaw

Recently I posted about meal planning and using my crock pot to make Seven Days of Clean Eating Slow-Cooker Recipes.  Here is one of the recipes that we really enjoyed…

Serve the chicken shredded on a roll as a sandwich with some delicious coleslaw, or for an even healthier option skip the  bread and serve the chicken over lettuce as a delicious salad topper.

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

● 4 chicken breasts
● 1 medium onion, sliced
● ½ teaspoon each: dried parsley, dried dill, dried chives, garlic powder, onion powder
● sea salt and pepper, to taste
● 4 peppers, tops cut off and seeds cleaned out
● ½ cup hot sauce* (I use Frank’s RedHot Hot Sauce)
*This can be spicy for some. Want it mild? Use a little less hot sauce!

Instructions

1. Put chicken, spices, hot sauce in crockpot.
2. Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
3. Shred and serve on your choice of sandwich thin, lettuce wrap, stuffed in a pre boiled bell pepper, stuffed in a baked sweet potato or over salad greens.

*Make a ranch sauce to go on sandwiches. ½ cup plain greek yogurt and ½ teaspoon of each: dried parsley, dried dill, dried chives, garlic powder, onion powder. This also cuts the spice!!
