This meal (snack…salad?) was born from my recent buffalo wing craving. I am not much a wings enthusiast but when this craving kicks in there is no running from it. Frantically looking through my cupboards and refrigerator the B.B.Q. was born.
It is so simple and I cannot believe it took desperation for me to come up with it. Plus, it a great way to sneak fiber into my diet.
Throw it in a bowl:
2 cups quinoa and bulgur mix*, cooled
2 tablespoons thinly sliced carrots
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions, mix of top and bottom (reserve 1 tablespoon for serving)
1/4 cup leftover rotisserie chicken
*If you are unable to find the mix you can use your favorite quinoa
Sauce is boss:
1/2 cup buffalo sauce
1/2 tablespoon melted butter, cooled
4 tablespoons light ranch
Pinch of salt and pepper
Pinch of garlic powder
Once the sauce is mixed toss it in with the quinoa mix and let chill for an hour. Before serving top with remaining green onions.
It is a great alternative to your typical empty calorie filled buffalo chicken dip or buffalo chicken pastas. Bring the B.B.Q. to a party or keep it for yourself; but most importably just enjoy.
