Shredded Buffalo Chicken – WLS Recipe


Who doesn’t need another easy chicken slow-cooker meal!?

If you like a little bit of heat, this is a great recipe to have in your arsenal. If you like a lot a bit of heat, add more hot sauce!

We melted a bit of reduced fat swiss chess on top and proceeded to pat ourselves on the back for a really great idea.
