  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce**
  • 1 cup half and half


  1. Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add rice, vegetables, and top with broth and buffalo sauce.
  2. Set your slow cooker to low and cook for 4-6 hours, or until chicken can be easily shredded and rice is cooked through.
  3. Shred the chicken, add the half and half, and stir to combine.
  4. Serve immediately. Optional (but tasty) to add some cilantro, shredded cheddar ,or blue cheese crumbles.

Recipe Notes

*I use the Trader Joe's California Wild Rice, but any wild rice, basmati, jasmine, or even brown rice will work. 

**I use Frank's Red Hot Original.
