You may have noticed that it takes just under 9 hours to cook. But not to fear! This is not nine hours of food preparation. Preparing the ingredients is actually very quick and the vast majority of this time is leaving the ingredients to cook in a slow cooker. We recommended making the recipe this way, as slow cooking gives the flavors within the ingredients a chance to increase in richness. It also serves six adults, so it really is a great family recipe.
Finally, let’s talk about nutrition. Although at 496 calories this recipe is not particularly heavy going, we recommend eating this at dinner time. This is because it contains a whopping 39 grams of protein, which is sure to keep you going until breakfast next day. Sugar is quite high at 6 grams, but if you forgo the hot sauce, this will bring the number right down. Finally, it only had 7 grams of net carbs, which means Atkins and keto dieters can rejoice.
- The first step in this recipe is extremely simple, but quite time consuming. All you have to do is dump your chicken breasts, cream cheese and Franks Hot Sauce into your slow cooker, and cook on low for 8 hours. Cook on low for 8 hours.
- After the 8 hours, you want to shred the chicken with two forks, and mix well with the sauce that has formed. You want the chicken to be a nice stringy shredded consistency, not chunky or lumpy.
- Take a roasting dish and add your chopped cauliflower. Add salt and pepper to taste, drizzle with olive oil and pop it in the oven at 350F for 25 mins.
- When the cauliflower is looking nice and golden, remove it from the oven and layer on your buffalo chicken mixture. Top this off with your cheese and pop it back in the oven for another 15 minutes to bake. When the cauliflower is looking nice and golden, remove it from the oven and layer on your buffalo chicken mixture.

This is absolutely delicious with a side salad or just on it's own, and drizzled with our Keto Blue Cheese Sauce. Also a great meal to make on a Sunday evening and bring to work as lunches for the week.
