My Life of Travels and Adventures: Buffalo Chicken Chili (and the Crock Pot Version)

Buffalo Chicken Chili (and the Crock Pot Version)

17 January 2014

One lazy Sunday as I was baking up a large batch of chicken breast for the freezer, I was also browsing Pinterest and stumbled upon this recipe.  
Buffalo Chicken Chili
This recipe was a hit in our house.  Neil loved it.  I loved how simple it was to make.  A hit all around. 

2 lbs Chicken Breasts, cooked and shredded
5 Tbps Minced Garlic
2 C Onions, chopped
2 C Peppers, chopped
4 C Carrots, sliced
2 C Celery, chopped
2 (15oz) Cans, White Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
½ C Hot Sauce
2 Tsp Cumin
1 Tsp Paprika
28oz Canned Diced Italian Tomatoes

  1. Over medium heat, saute the garlic, onions, peppers,  carrots and celery for 10 minutes.  
  2. Transfer to a large pot.  
  3. Add the remaining ingredients.  
  4. Let boil. 
  5. Reduce to low heat and let simmer for at least an additional 30 minutes. 
Crock Pot Version:

If using a crockpot, you can use either uncooked or cooked chicken.  
  1. Over medium heat, saute the garlic, onions, peppers,  carrots and celery for 10 minutes.  
  2. Transfer to the crockpot. 
  3. Add the remaining ingredients… including either the cooked shredded chicken or diced uncooked chicken.
  4. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.

  9. What kind of hot sauce did you use?

  11. Did you use 2 lbs. of boneless, or bone-in, chicken breasts? Clearly, 2 lbs. of boneless will yield more meat than 2 lbs. of bone-in chicken. I ask because my daughter made this using boneless breasts and, IMO, it was too much meat, but I am curious as to your own experience?

    1. Anne - I do make this with 2 lbs of boneless chicken breast and we do like a meaty chili (As you can see from the pictures). You definitely could cut back on some of the chicken and still have a tasty chili.

  12. It is super delicious, Krystal. We loved it! Next time we will add more hot sauce, haha!

  13. How many servings does a full batch of this yield? I am cooking for one and want to know how to scale the recipe for a week's worth of dinners for myself

    1. I would say this makes about 8 - 10 servings.
