Keto Shredded Buffalo Chicken (Instant Pot & Slow Cooker)

May 22, 2018Laura

I love making shredded buffalo chicken. It’s quick, easy and you can use it in so many different ways- quesadillas, in lettuce wraps, as a nacho topping, pizza topping or in low carb tortilla wraps. The possibilities are endless! I usually make mine in the Instant Pot, but you can use the slow cooker as well. This buffalo chicken is full of flavor and is a favorite in my household!

For this recipe you will need: chicken breast, buffalo wing sauce, a few basic seasonings and butter. I included directions on the recipe card for both the Instant Pot and slow cooker. Either method is equally delicious and super easy!

I like serving this buffalo chicken on an Outer Aisle Gourmet cauliflower sandwich thin, as a burrito or quesadilla filling or on a low carb bun. I use Cutdacarb flatbreads to make burritos and quesadillas. The chicken also makes a great pizza topping. There’s so many delicious ways to serve it! I hope you enjoy!

It also pairs great with my Low Carb Coleslaw recipe.
