Low Carb Shredded Buffalo Chicken

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 make mine in the Instant Pot, but you can use the Crock-Pot as well. This buffalo chicken is full of flavor and is a favorite in my household!

The directions for cooking the chicken in the Instant Pot are below, but it’s easy to cook it in the Crock-Pot too. The only change will be the cooking time. Just cook it on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6 hours. Either method is delicious! Hope you enjoy!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to eat the buffalo chicken:

      1. On an Outer Aisle Gourmet cauliflower sandwich thin
      2. Low Carb Burrito
      3. Low Carb Quesadilla
      4. On a low carb bun


It also pairs great with my Low Carb Coleslaw recipe.
