Hungry Girl Review: Slow cooker Buffalo Chicken


The other day, I got my copy of Hungry Girl’s latest book Clean and Hungry. And this week I am cooking from the slow cooker chapter.  Today I made her Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken.

Disclaimer:  I’m not a big buffalo chicken wings fan, or that sort of flavor.  But I thought I’d give it a whirl.

This recipe smelled really yummy when we came in the door this afternoon.  I wasn’t really sure how I wanted to serve it up at first.  I decided on a salad:


It looks pretty, smells good.  But I’ll be honest, I didn’t love this one.  Even though I used fresh veggies, buy the time this was ready those veggies had that canned taste.  Now:  I did use canned jalapenos instead of fresh.  That is a confidence issue, I just don’t know about hot peppers, how to buy them or chop them, etc.  That could’ve been the problem.

That being said, I did REALLY enjoy the chicken!  Yes, even though I’m not a big buffalo chicken fan I did like the chicken itself.  I would recommend serving this up maybe more like a taco with cheese or as a sandwich.  Maybe something like a pulled pork sandwich with some cheese or a blue cheese sauce.

So this one wasn’t as great but I think it was due to the chef on duty (aka – me).  And I’d give it another go and try the fresh jalapeno pepper.

Be sure to check out my review of the Slow Cooker Fajitas.  Those were DELISH!
