Basically a buffalo chicken salad recipe — this bowl is full of flavor and nutrition.
I love Buffalo wing sauce. Even typing this I’m salivating thinking about the vinegary pepper sauce. I like it hot – I mean, really hot.
I love the way the burn lingers on my lips. But, I definitely don’t like the deep-fried version that you usually get when you order them in restaurants.
This buffalo chicken bowl is an awesome way to get all of my favorite flavors from a huge plate of hot wings into one healthy bowl. Nothing breaded or fried – just a healthy serving of flavorful protein with all of the spicy hotness of wing sauce and the creamy tang of blue cheese. Plus, you get a huge serving of veggies.
All the deliciousness of buffalo chicken with none of the guilt.
This bowl is essentially a Keto Buffalo Chicken Salad.
For this recipe, you can pick your favorite wing sauce. Frank’s Red Hot is a standby favorite.
This time I picked up a brand from Whole Foods called Wing-Time and it was super tasty.
