The Best Buffalo chicken tacos
This is one of our household favorites! We love making this recipe whenever there’s a game on and to be honest, there is always a game on. So, we eat it often. Easy to make and ready in less than 30 minutes. If you love spicy then this recipes for you. Ben and love anything buffalo flavored and/or anything spicy so this is definitely in our top three! Share with friends, family or no one... no judgement here, because these tacos are amazing!
Serving Size: 6-8 tacos
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Cook Time: 25 minutes
6-8 mini flour tortillas (I also LOVE using Siete's almond or cassava flour tortillas )
1 tablespoon olive oil
2-3 chicken breast
1 tablespoon franks red hot sauce
½ cup chicken or vegetable broth
after chicken is cooked:
1.5 tablespoons grass fed butter or ghee
2 tablespoons franks red hot sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
1 lime- juiced
1 teaspoon water
1/3 cup organic blue cheese crumbles
pinch of salt and pepper
1 head chopped romaine lettuce
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon hidden valley ranch dry seasoning mix
On stove top, heat a large skillet on medium/low heat. Coat with olive oil and add chicken. Cover and let cook for 2 minutes. Add in 1 tablespoon hot sauce and 1/2 cup of broth. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
While chicken is cooking rinse and chop romaine lettuce. In a small bowl combine oil, lime juice, water, blue cheese, salt + pepper and whisk for about 30 seconds. Set aside.
Once chicken is fully cooked, transfer to a cutting board. Using two forks, begin pulling and shredding each piece until finely shredded.
Heat skillet once more on medium/low heat and add 1.5 tablespoons of butter. Once butter is melted transfer shredded chicken back into the heated skillet and add in 2 more tablespoons of franks red hot sauce. Stir chicken until evenly coated. Cover and turn off heat. (Feel free to add more hot sauce if that's your jam.)
If you decide to have the optional ranch sauce (highly recommend!) make this now. Add 1 tablespoon of hidden valley ranch dry seasoning to 3/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt. Mix until well combined and set aside.
Pour blue cheese mixture onto chopped romaine lettuce and toss until evenly coated. Warm up your tortillas any way you’d like (stove top, microwave, char on open flame etc.) and serve warm. I recommend spreading ranch sauce on tortillas first, then adding chicken and topping with lettuce.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family and friends do!
