Buffalo Chicken Salad


I don’t love celery. In fact, next to mushrooms and tomatoes its my least favorite. I know you are all thinking mushrooms and tomatoes? What is wrong with you? I’m working on it, I swear.

I like buffalo sauce so much though, that I often can trick myself into eating celery whenever its involved. I play tricks on myself.


I needed celery for a few recipes this week and I knew we would have leftover celery for days. Matt likes celery but he’s not the raw veggie crunching kind, and although I hate to let vegetables go to waste I couldn’t imagine mindless munching on the stringy stuff. So I came up with a  few ideas that included celery, and the red hot sauce that dreams are made of.


Buffalo Chicken Salad

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup Frank’s buffalo sauce

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 stalks of celery plus more for serving

Boil chicken breasts and immediately shred with a fork. In a bowl combine shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, chopped celery, and shredded cheese. Serve in pitas, on salad, or in a big bun. Top with blue cheese dressing and serve carrot and celery sticks on the side.


Sounds like the perfect Superbowl lunch to me!

  1. That looks delish! Although I would have to skip the celery….ack! I try soooooo hard to like it, I just can’t! And yes, you ARE weird for not liking tomatoes and mushrooms 🙂 Chandra JUST started liking mushrooms and she LOVES them now, so there’s hope for you too!

  2. I love Franks too! Though even Franks can’t get me to eat celery, haha! But I do love me some buffalo chicken, yum! 🙂

  3. Hmmm – I wish they’d sell buffalo sauce in Brazil!
    I tried it while in the U.S…. And it tastes AMAZING!
    Definitely makes anything better 🙂
