Buffalo Chicken Salad

I prep our lunches for work on Sundays after the grocery shopping trip. Chris normally does lunch meat of some kind on lettuce wraps, or a salad with grilled chicken. He wanted something different to change it up, so enter Buffalo Chicken Salad! I adapted this from a few different recipes, and then made my own tweaks to it as well. Combining everything that he likes. This is super quick to throw together. Mainly because no one has time to cook chicken, I buy precooked rotisserie chickens and just shred them up!

What You Need

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded (you could cook 2-3 chicken breasts instead)

1/2 cup ranch dressing

1/4 cup hot sauce

2-3 stalks of celery, chopped

3 green onions

1/2 cup cheddar jack cheese

salt and pepper to taste

What You Do

Mix everything up in a container that you plan to store in refrigerator, less dishes less problems am I right? That’s it! This lasts all week. Chris likes it with the Flat Out Protein Up wraps.

    Buffalo chicken is one of my favorite things ever– I can see this being delicious in a wrap or pita, and I love that you use bigger pieces of celery- yum!

    I do this for wraps! Or to just serve over lettuce.

    This looks so good! I also love that you say lunch meat. I do too, but everyone always looks at me weird because they call it cold cuts around here. No thanks lol. Beautifully Candid

    I LOVE buffalo chicken anything and have never thought to make it – can’t believe how easy it is! Healthy, too. I know there’s also a dip form which ISN’T as healthy, but I love that too 🙂

    Yum! I’m a huge buffalo chicken fan, so I know that this would be right up my alley! Plus, it would be a perfect substitute for lunch meat when you’re preggers too!

    “Mix everything together and put in fridge”- hahaha that’s my kind of recipe! I tend to make a batch of chicken in the crockpot and then shred it and use it in salads/wraps/sandwiches. I actually have all of these things at home right now, so thank you for the dinner idea!
