Buffalo Chicken in a Healthy Beast Bowl – Yeah I think you need this Beast Bowl in your life.
Healthy eating doesn’t mean boring eating. Am I right? I see the confusion in your eyes. If a healthy diet is still boring for you, it means you are doing it wrong. I firmly believe that eating healthy should make your tastebuds happy. Your waistline will be happy too, I promise. Let me bring into flavor town.
One of my favorite things to eat is hot wings. You too?
In college, there used to be this wings place that I would go to in San Diego, Wings-N-Things. I worked in National City so I would usually have it for dinner on my break. Hold up, I actually just looked it up right now, and they are still in San Diego. If you have a chance drive over, give them a try and let me know if they are still as fantastic as I remember. Thanks! I used to get the six-piece boneless wings, hot! A side of carrots and celery, plus the blue cheese. Ummmhmmm! That takes me back.
The Buffalo Chicken Beast Bowl. It’s a work of genius.
Later in life, whilst adulting, I starting making my own healthier version of boneless wings.
I would buy boneless chicken tenderloins and season them up with my best guess at how one should season a chicken wing. Over the years and with much experimentation, I have to say; I think I nailed it. If you want a copy of a few seasoning blends that will change your life, grab them HERE!And now I make this Buffalo Chicken Beast on the regular as part of my meal prep routine. I have also made this with shrimp. Buffalo shrimp are mighty fantastic too! If you are pescatarian, then you can eat this bowl. And for my vegan friends, cauliflower is a sure stand-in. This flexibility is why I am in love with the Beast Bowl. You can literally adapt it for anyone. Well, I guess unless you aren’t a fan of hot wings. Nah, that’s ridiculous. Who’s not a fan of hot wings?

I love Buffalo wing sauce. Even typing this I’m salivating thinking about the vinegary pepper sauce. I like it hot – I mean, really hot. I love the way the burn lingers on my lips. There is the traditional, Franks Red Hot. And one of my new favorites Wing Time brand. If you can get it in your area, do. If not you can find in on Amazon, follow the link here or on the recipe.
So here we go! You have your seasoning mix recipe and your wing sauce, right? I am going to teach how to turn this fantastic bar food into a meal prep dream.
A note about blue cheese: We are going to make a dairy-free buffalo ranch dressing with this Beast Bowl. It is up to you if you want to add in the blue cheese. I am a believer in moderation, especially if you are not contending with food allergies. I definitely do dairy in moderation. Adding a tablespoon or two of robust, flavorful blue cheese can really up the flavor profile here. If you aren’t feeling it, then make the buffalo ranch and leave out the cheese. It’ll still be amazing. This Buffalo Chicken Beast Bowl is a fantastic way to get all of your favorite flavors from a huge plate of hot wings into one healthy, veggie-packed bowl. It’s like reliving college in a responsible kind of adult way. You know, like mom cool! There is nothing breaded or fried – just a healthy serving of flavorful protein with all of the spicy hotness of wing sauce and the creamy tang of blue cheese.
