Buffalo Chicken Chili Recipe – 6 Points +

Buffalo Chicken Chili

I do believe I have found one of my new favorite Weight Watchers Recipes — this incredibly delicious Buffalo Chicken Chili Recipe. Oh my GOD, it is is so good! As I’ve said many times before, I am a huge fan of buffalo chicken anything, so when I found the original version of this recipe at Closet Cooking, I was psyched to re-vamp it and make it a more Weight Watchers friendly dish. Each large serving is just 6 Points +, and is incredibly flavorful and satisfying. It’s definitely a different taste than a traditional chili — it tastes kinda like a buffalo wing stew. SO GOOD. I like mine spicy, so I added extra hot sauce, but if you prefer a more mild buffalo chicken chili, just use a bit less hot sauce. I plan on using this as a Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipe too and serving it with some carrot and celery sticks…the men will love it and will have no idea they are eating a chicken chili that’s good for them and low in calories. If you are a fan of buffalo chicken wings, you must try this Buffalo Chicken Chili. I would eat this everyday if I could!

  1. Can I use ground chicken for this recipe?

  2. This is my new fav recipe!! I had franks wing sauce in the frig and used that. The blue cheese topper is incredible. I’m craving this and will be making it again very soon.

  3. Shellster says:

    I hate handling raw chicken. Could I subsitute canned cooked chicken for this?

  4. This is ridiculously good.  I omitted the blue cheese from mine.

  5. I made this over the weekend, I really, really like it! Served with a nice side salad and it was a great meal! I will be making this again for sure!
