Healthy Meals Monday: Skinny Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Salad

Print Friendly

This pregnancy has been so different than my other ones. I thought for sure I was going to have a boy but I was wrong…. I am having another girl! That will make 3 girls and no boys and I must say that I am SO EXCITED! I know how to do girls! :)
I was searching for a new salad (spicy one at that) and saw this skinny buffalo chicken recipe. It tasted SO good and I got most of my veggies in for the day!

Skinny Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Salad


  • 24 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays Buffalo Sauce)

For the Salad:

  • 1 bag of salad
  • 1 cucumber peeled and chopped
  • sprouts on top (optional)


In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn’t enough). Cover and cook on high 4 hours.
Remove the chicken from pot, save 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, returen to the slow cooker with the 1/2 cup broth and the hot sauce and set on high for an additional 30 minutes. Makes 3 cups chicken.

To prepare salad, place 1/2 cup buffalo chicken on top of your salad and cucumber. Top with 1/4 cup sprouts. Add whatever dressing you would like! I added a bit of fatfree ranch dressing because ranch and buffalo chicken are AMAZING together! Enjoy!

    Congrats on another little girl! I only have one girl, three boys, but she’s very into all the pink, princess, ballet – everything I love about being girly, so it makes up for it. Hope your pregnancy still goes well and best of luck!

    This looks great! I’m going to try it today! Can you cook it on low for a longer amount of time?? Could you also use frozen chicken?
