Low Carb Crock Pot Italian Buffalo Chicken (Only 3 Ingredients)

This is another quick low carb dish you can throw together fast.

Many people like buffalo style chicken, but can’t quite take the heat of it.  Using 1/2 Italian dressing and 1/2 buffalo wing sauce cuts the heat of the buffalo sauce while still giving it that yummy buffalo sauce flavor.  The Italian dressing also adds a nice tangy zip to the buffalo sauce.  The sauces compliment each other well.  If you like heat, you can replace the wing sauce with regular Frank’s hot sauce.

This recipe contains only a trace amount of carbs.  You can eat it over lettuce, add ranch dressing or shred it for wraps.

I have made this in my small 2 quart slow cooker or my 5 quart slow cooker.

Ingredients:
3 or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce (not to be confused with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)
1/2 cup Zesty Italian Dressing (I use the Kraft brand)

Directions:
Mix your ingredients in your slow cooker and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours OR Low 4 to 6 hours. (Total cook time will depend on the heat of your slow cooker). Remove the chicken and drizzle it with sauce from the slow cooker.

Tips:
The key to delicious slow cooker chicken breasts is to cook it until fully cooked and tender (but NOT overcooked) where it becomes stringy and breaks apart. Fully cooked chicken breasts should be 165 degrees in the center.

Carb Count:
This recipe contains a very small amount of carbs.  The chicken and wing sauce contain 0 carbs per serving and the zesty Italian dressing (depending on the brand) runs about 3 grams of carbs for 2 tablespoons of dressing.

      Hi Wendy:

      Many people use frozen chicken breasts in their slow cooker, but I am a total saftey suzie when it comes to food safety so I do not. I am too worried about bacteria from the chicken not heating up fast enough.

  2. i used kens steakhouse dressing and contains 1 total gram of carbs per serving
