November 14, 2014

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: 10-12


8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

4 cups fat-free chicken broth

1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce (I used mild) (1/4 cup now, 1/4 cup later)

4 tablespoons ranch dressing mix

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup chopped or diced onion

8 ounces fat-free cream cheese

1 cup shredded, reduced fat cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon corn starch + 1 tablespoon water

13.25 ounces linguine pasta, uncooked


1Place chicken, broth, 1/4 cup buffalo sauce, seasonings and onion into crock.

2Cover and cook (no tea towel) on low for 4-5 hours or high for 3 1/2 hours. When chicken is fully cooked, remove to separate bowl and shred with 2 forks.

3Add remaining 1/4 cup buffalo sauce, cream cheese and grated cheese to chicken and toss. Set aside chicken.

4Whisk together corn starch and water and add to crock and stir. Break noodles in half, if desired, and place in crock. Top with chicken and cover. Cook for an additional 30-45 minutes on high until pasta is fully cooked. Stir 3-4 times if you can (I did not and it was ok).

5If pasta is not done you can add extra water, 1/4 cup at a time.

6Garnish with cilantro or basil if desired and serve immediately.

7Makes 16 1/2 cup servings.

8Weight Watcher Points Plus are 5PP per 1/2 cup serving.
