Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Soup

Buffalo chicken wings MEET soup.

This keto chicken dinner is prepared in the slow cooker and aims to bring the spicy taste of buffalo chicken wings to a soup.

It is a “dump” recipe so you don’t have to brown or sear the chicken before throwing it into the slow cooker.

After cooking for several hours there are some steps required and things to add, but they aren’t time-consuming.

Slow Cooker Mandarin Chicken Thighs

Here is a sweet tasting keto chicken recipe with an Eastern flare thanks to “no sugar added” mandarin orange slices.

It is from “I Breathe I’m Hungry” website.
