I honestly wasn’t expecting it to be so delicious since its only made with 5 ingredients, but the flavor combo is spot on! Costco now has Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce and I have to say…it is the best Whole30 compliant bottled sauce I’ve tried. They use cashew butter in it, so it’s creamy and not too spicy!

What Ingredients You Need to Make These Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

You only need 5 ingredients to make these. FIVE:

  • Chicken breasts – I used 2 lbs which makes a ton of leftovers! I love to get these from Butcher Box. They are organic and delivered right to your doorstep, which is super convenient!
  • Sweet Potatoes – look for big ones!
  • Buffalo sauce – Like I mentioned, Primal Kitchen makes the best Whole30 compliant sauce in my opinion, and it’s now available at Costco! Some other clean brands include Tessemaes and The New Primal!
  • Ranch Dressing – I like to use Tessemae’s for a convenient Whole30 option, or you can make your own using this recipe!
  • Green onions

THAT’S IT! You could always add some crumbled bacon on top to really take things to the next level.

How To Make Shredded Buffalo Chicken In The Instant Pot

First of all, let me just say….if you don’t have an Instant Pot, they are life changing. This is the one I have. I know they might seem intimidating, but they couldn’t be easier to use!

To make Buffalo Chicken in the instant pot, simply place the chicken breasts into the bottom of the pot. Pour 10 oz of buffalo sauce over the chicken. Use tongs to turn the chicken breasts so they are coated and there is a good amount of sauce coating the bottom of the pot (this will prevent the burn notice). Cook on manual high pressure for 13 minutes, then quick release the steam. Use two forks to shred the chicken and place it back into the pot. You’re done!

How To Make Shredded Buffalo Chicken In The Slow Cooker

You can also make this in your Crock Pot. Simply place the chicken breasts in the pot, cover them with the sauce, and toss to coat. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Shred and place back in the sauce.

How To Bake Perfect Sweet Potatoes in the Oven

It’s taken me a while to figure out how to make the perfect baked sweet potatoes. This method couldn’t be easier, too! Simply line a baking sheet with foil, and wash/scrub your sweet potatoes. Poke a few holes in each one using a fork. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet and bake at 425 for 40-50 minutes (the timing will depend on how big your potatoes are)! Bam, it’s that easy. No wrapping in foil, coating in oil, or anything else needed!

Instant Pot Instructions

  • Cook on Manual High Pressure for 13 minutes, then quick release. Shred the chicken using 2 forks, then add it back to the pot with the sauce and toss to combine.
  • Cut a slit in each cookd potato and fill each one with some of the shredded buffalo chicken. Top with ranch dressing and chopped green onions. Enjoy!
