Katie is a 7 year SuperStar at Cr8 Fitness. She has won the famous Sizzlin Summer Slimdown this past year with her team from 5am. When she sends me a recipe I tend to pay attention. This week she sent me a recipe for Buffalo Ranch Chicken done in a crockpot. I wanted to make this recipe right away so I made it in the oven. I'm glad I listened to Katie as this recipe is a keeper.
Buffalo Ranch Chicken in the Crockpot
- 1/2 cup buffalo hot sauce
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 pounds chicken
- 1 Tbs of this ranch seasoning (1 tsp each of parsley, chives, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt as 1/4 tsp pepper).
All of this goes in your Crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours. Here's the changes Katie made to the recipe. "I didn’t have broth, so I used all buffalo (it was spicy) and I used all of the Ranch seasoning, Super yummy!"
By the time I read Katie's email it was too late to make this in the crockpot. Instead I made in the oven. Since my family is bigger I doubled the recipe. I placed all the ingredients in a 13 x9 baking dish and covered it with aluminum foil. I baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes. I served it with roasted Brussel Sprouts and Roasted Sweet Potatoes.
I'm going to use the leftovers on a spinach salad with celery and blue cheese. I can hardly wait for dinner tonight.
Thank you Katie, If you have a favorite recipe, share it with me please.
Enjoy good food,
P.S. From Katie: "I thought you might be interested in the “ranch seasoning” addition. I’m going to make that seasoning again and try it on baked chicken. I’ll let you know how it turns out."
P.S.S From Coach Nancy- If there is leftovers of the leftovers, I'm going to put the chicken in a wrap for lunch.
