One of the boards that I have on Pinterest is called “Pinterest Recipes I’ve Made and Liked”. The inspiration for this recipe came from a pin that I found, tried, and then stuck there. I like mine a little better.
What you’ll need:
3 large or 4 medium chicken breast halves
12 ounce bottle cayenne pepper hot sauce (I use the kind from Aldi, but any buffalo wing-style sauce will work just fine)
1 Tablespoon Ranch dressing mix (powder)
1/2 cup water
1 cup sour cream
Place the chicken breast halves in the bottom of your crockpot. Sprinkle on the Ranch powder, then pour the bottle of hot sauce over the chicken. Pour in 1/2 cup of water. Set it on low and cook for 6-8 hours while you’re at work.
Shred the chicken with two forks, then stir in the sour cream. Cook another 15 minutes.
That’s it. So. Freaking. Easy.
If you’re eating keto, scoop this up with celery sticks, or just eat bowls full of it. If you’re eating low carb, make burritos with low carb tortillas…or just eat bowls full of it.
We like to fill tortillas and top the chicken with blue cheese crumbles… or just eat bowls full of it topped with blue cheese crumbles, or pepperjack cheese shreds. Or cheddar cheese shreds. Because cheese.
You can use your favorite flavor of hot sauce to shake things up, but I definitely recommend that you follow the recipe the first time, and tweak it the second time you make it. And yes–there will definitely be a second time. It’s that good.
