If it has buffalo sauce on it, you can be almost 100% sure that I am going to eat it. I am almost embarrassed by how much I like it, especially as a healthy food blogger. However since I crave it pretty constantly and restaurant buffalo dishes are usually loaded with fat and calories, I usually try and make my buffalo dishes at home. This Grilled Buffalo Chicken with Blue Cheese Yogurt Sauce has been my favorite lately. I love it chopped up in lettuce wraps, served on a big bed of greens with the yogurt sauce as the dressing, and paired with cauliflower rice and veggies.
