Healthy slow cooker buffalo chicken is lightened up but super creamy and takes just minutes to prep!


  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 oz. reduced fat (or fat free) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 1/2 cup Frank‚Äôs red hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


Add the chicken to the insert of your slow cooker. Add cream cheese, Greek yogurt and hot sauce and stir to mix so everything is spread out and coated.

Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, until cooked through.

Remove the chicken breasts, shred and return the shredded chicken to the crock pot. Stir into the sauce until well mixed.

Stir in the blue cheese and let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes (either off or on warm) to let the chicken absorb all the juices and flavors.

Serve and enjoy!
