Fall and football season are already in full swing, and I can’t stop fantasizing about Super Bowl foods! With buffalo wings being one of the key dishes on any Super Bowl Sunday table, I decided to try out a lighter, healthier take on that popular recipe.
My Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is not only super easy to make, but because it uses skinless bombers breasts, it’s way lighter and healthier than the wings. Plus, it’s a lot less messy. And making a sandwich out of the meat makes it a much more filling food.
If I have an extra Point or two to spend, adding a tbsp of blue cheese dressing to this sandwich is absolutely DELISH, and I highly recommend it. For this recipe, you’ll want to use whole wheat buns that are around 90 calories each.
And if you want to skip the buns altogether, you can use the buffalo chicken meat on top of a salad, which would eliminate some extra Points. Either way, this Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Sandwich Recipe is as delicious as it easy, and is a must try for any buffalo chicken wing lovers.
