Slow Cooked Buffalo Chicken and a Breakfast Scramble
Posted Oct 23 2012 8:01am
I meant to post this yesterday, but I guess today will do as well!
Yesterday I had woken up and ran 7 miles. It actually felt really good. The morning was cool and I just seemed to power through it. After the run, I was looking for something that was high protein, lean and fairly light. I wasn’t much in the mood for a high carb meal. I ended up making, what I like to call, A Breakfast Scramble. In a Breakfast Scramble, there is just about anything that you have lying around. There are no real ingredients, just what you happen to have sitting around. Yesterday, was a Broccoli Cheddar Breakfast Scramble.
1/4 Cup Steamed Broccoli
2 Eggs, Lightly Scrambled
1 Tablepsoon Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper to Taste
I had some leftover broccoli in the fridge that I steamed in the microwave for two minutes. I topped it off with some cheddar cheese and placed the lightly scrambled eggs on top. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on there and you have got a yummy, high protein breakfast. Perfect.
Brent was actually on his way over to drop Bacon off before work and I had made some buffalo chicken for him this weekend in the slow cooker. Even though I am vegetarian, I told him that if he bought the chicken, I would prepare it for him. Buffalo chicken is by far his favorite, so that’s what ended up happening.
For lunch, I made him a buffalo chicken sandwich.
1.75 Pounds Chicken Breast
1 Cup Buffalo Wing Sauce
1 Hamburger Bun
1/4 Cup Lettuce
1. In a crock pot, place your three chicken breasts and cover them with a cup of buffalo sauce. Cook on low heat for 7-8 hours.
2. After 7-8 hours, drain all of the sauce. Using a fork, break apart the chicken into shreds.
I ended up just putting it into the fridge afterwards because it finished up at 830 on Sunday. I plan on using this chicken throughout the week in as many recipes as possible. On the sandwich, I stirred in 1 Tablespoon of buffalo sauce into the single portion and put it on the hamburger bun.
Brent HATES blue cheese, so if that had not been the case, there would be some blue cheese on there. Or maybe some Muenster cheese?! He LOVED the sandwich though. Some of my other plans would be a salad and a flatbread. So stay tuned!
Today, is another day in Melbourne. I just finished up Jillian Michaels Yoga DVD, jumped in the shower and am now starving. I swear, there aren’t enough hours in the day.
What’s your favorite Buffalo Chicken dish? Sandwich? PIzza?
