Buffalo Chicken Chili

Good evening my bloggy friends!! As you may have noticed, I have been doing some changes to Niki’s Neverending Adventure! What do ya’ll think??


I made a really yummy dinner tonight, or actually, my crock pot did! I love crock pot meals because they are so simple to throw together in the morning and then you come home to a house smelling of yummy deliciousness!! And this recipe definitely had my house smelling good!! I found this recipe off of Lauren’s blog. Ya’ll go visit her and tell her hi! She has some of the best looking healthy recipes around!


Buffalo Chicken Chili


  • 1/2 pound of all white meat ground chicken breast (all natural, organic)**
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 1 large carrot chopped
  • 1 small green pepper chopped
  • garlic, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, parsley
  • 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 15 oz can white beans
  • 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes

**I used ground turkey breast because I can’t find ground chicken here**

First, I browned the meat in a large skillet. Then, I added the chopped veggies, and the garlic, salt, pepper, smoked paprika and parsley.

Let this sauté for about 5 min, until veggies are slightly tender and then add the chicken broth to scrape up all of the brown bits on the bottom on the pan.

Next, I converted the mixture into a slow cooker and added the remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.




Getting all hot and bubbly in the Crock Pot!! 




I topped mine with some Light Sour Cream! Yum!!




And a small salad on the side! Spinach, onion, jalapenos, and sharp cheddar cheese!! Needed some greens in my life :)

Lauren, this recipe is awesome!! I am looking forward to all the leftovers!!




No running for me today!! I had planned on doing a upper body strength workout but the past 2 nights I have slept funny on my shoulder and it hurts to raise it, let alone lift weights!! So, I opted to do an ab workout instead. I did as many ab moves as I could think of and it lasted about 12 minutes. I was sore by the end!! Tomorrow, is a long run day for me! It will be the first since the 1/2 marathon! I am planning on doing 8-10 miles depending on how I feel.


I got to have lunch at Panera today with my friend Katie!! I love Panera! I ended up having an Asiago Cheese bagel with Hazelnut cream cheese! I think bagels are favorite thing there!! Yum! And then after, we met up with another one of my bridesmaids and went bridesmaid dress shopping!! We found one at David’s Bridal and it is only $99!! I thought that was pretty good for a bridesmaid dress!! Plus, they are super cute and will definitely be worn again!! I know all brides say that, but seriously, this one you can :) Here is a picture of it:
