Meal Prep Monday Edition

It happens to all of us. We have the best intentions for our weekend, we will be the most productive and stay on top of our list and goals. Then the couch calls, or something pops up, and the next thing you know it is Sunday evening. You haven’t folded your laundry, you haven’t gone grocery shopping, and you definitely have not meal prepped.

This was me. Waking up this morning and realizing this stressed me out! What will I eat for lunch? What’s for dinner? What have I done?!

So, logically I went grocery shopping and picked out an easy recipe that I could throw together. My husband mentioned buffalo chicken, and I was sold. I love buffalo chicken…a lot. I began to look around on Pinterest for some inspiration. The Instant Pot saved me because I was able to cook three chicken breasts in 20 minutes and be able to shred them right away.


I then made the Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Dressing with low fat yogurt and low fat milk. I followed the directions right on the package. I let that set in the fridge for about 30 minutes. When I took it out, I added about a cup of Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce to the ranch. After I shredded the chicken, I put it in a container so we can put how much sauce we want in our serving of chicken. I portioned some out and put about 1.5 tablespoons of sauce for 1 cup of chicken.

In the morning, I will make my wrap with a spinach wrap, shredded carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, and the chicken. You could create a buffalo chicken bowl, sandwich, eat it with celery or bell pepper sticks,  on crackers, or just by itself! This is so versatile, easy, and delicious.

I had to taste the chicken before I put it away, and it tastes amazing! I love the buffalo sauce with the ranch. It is two of the best sauces put together. I am so excited to eat lunch this week.

Simple Buffalo Ranch Chicken

  1. Cook chicken breasts and shred. If you are using an Instant Pot, put chicken into the Instant Pot with one half to one cup of water, salt and pepper. Put on high for 20 minutes. Shred after quick release.
  2. Mix Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt dressing as stated on the package. Mix with 3 tablespoons of milk and one and one third cups of milk. Let set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Mix in one cup (more or less depending on taste) of Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce. Stir together.
  4. Serve with chicken!

Hope you enjoy!
Here’s to being happy & fit,
