Through the Paleo diet/lifestyle and the Whole30 my family, friends and I are becoming healthier! We are getting to our healthy weights, moving more, sleeping better and have better energy. We are suffering fewer mild medical issues and are just overall feeling better every day!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen these days. We cook and enjoy a lot of great food that's both tasty and healthy. I hope you'll find some recipes here that you'll enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Bowl (whole30)

By now you may have figured out that I am completely obsessed with buffalo chicken. I could eat it every day. Here's an original recipe that is inspired by this meatball recipe and this burrito bowl recipe.

What you'll need:

Ranch seasoning (see below)
1lb of ground chicken breast
Rainbow Slaw (2 packages)
Franks Red Hot Sauce (I used 5 TBSP total, you can use more or less to your taste)
cooking fat of choice
My famous Ranch Dressing for topping

For the Ranch Seasoning:
1 TBSP dried Parsley
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground mustard

I usually have some of this mixed up in a jar ahead of time, but today I just tossed it all in a bowl and stirred it a little before I started cooking.

Add some butter (or fat of choice) to a frying pan and heat over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add the chicken and start breaking it up. When it's about halfway cooked through, add the ranch seasoning. At this time you can heat some fat (I used olive oil) in another pan for sauteing the slaw. I do this on medium-high heat. Stir the slaw often to keep it from burning. Once the chicken is cooked through you can lower the heat and add 3 TBSP of the hot sauce and stir it in. Let the chicken continue to simmer in the sauce while you finish cooking the slaw. Add 2 TBSP of hot sauce to the slaw and continue cooking & stirring until it is tender-crispy. 

To serve, place a scoop of the cooked slaw in a bowl and top with a scoop of the chicken mixture. Now put a dollup of ranch dressing on there and enjoy!
