Resident Lazy Chef, here. Back again with another of my absolute favorite simple recipes: Lazy Girl's Buffalo Chicken!
Just so you know, I feel like a fraud calling this a recipe, because it really is stupidly easy. Not including crockpot time, it takes all of 20 minutes to assemble.
- boneless chicken breasts (roughly 1.5lbs will make 6 hearty portions)
- Frank's Red Hot Sauce
- brown rice
- 1.5 bags of frozen peppers
- light sour cream (optional)
Trim any fat and put your chicken in the crockpot on high for 4 hours. Mine was pre-marinated, but it doesn't have to be. Put the lid on and don't touch it! When the chicken is almost done, cook your brown rice (I prefer Minute Rice because it only takes 10 minutes) and sauté your veggies so they're all ready to go. Use two forks to shred your chicken and then add a healthy dose of Frank's Red Hot (probably 1/4 - 1/3 of the bottle). Mix your chicken to coat evenly.
To portion it out, I did 2/3 cup brown rice, a scoop of the veggies (probably 2/3 cup), and 4.5oz chicken. Feel free to add more Frank's if you think it needs it. Once I reheat it, I'll add a dollop (2 TBS) of light sour cream on top. Depending on your brown rice, this meal (which is a pretty hearty serving) ends up at about 313 calories or 10PP. Add 40 calories and 1PP for sour cream.
Really easy ingredients and really quick to assemble-- this is definitely a recipe I make all the time. Enjoy!
