Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bowl with Avocado

If you’re trying to eat healthier but you just can’t contain your craving for buffalo wings, do I have a solution for you! My recipe for the buffalo chicken quinoa bowl will satisfy your craving for wings without causing the buttons to bust off your pants. 

This bowl features a one-two flavor punch without the gut bomb after-effects of wings. The tender chicken bathed in buffalo sauce, blue cheese, avocado, quinoa, and crunchy veggies is a combo that just can’t be beat. Maybe even by a basket of buffalo wings.



1 c. uncooked quinoa

2 c. chicken broth

Salt and pepper

Buffalo sauce


Shredded chicken (tossed in buffalo sauce)

2 green onions, sliced

1 carrot, thinly sliced lengthwise

1 avocado, diced

2 c. fresh baby spinach

½ c. blue cheese crumbles

Salt and pepper

Cook the quinoa according to package directions using chicken broth. When it is finished, season with salt and pepper and set aside, covered so it stays warm. 

To make the buffalo sauce, heat the butter over medium high heat. As soon as it is melted, remove from heat and whisk in Franks, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Immediately toss in the shredded chicken and heat through. 

To assemble the bowls, place half of the quinoa in each bowl. Top with spinach, carrots, chicken, avocado, green onions, and blue cheese crumbles Season with salt and pepper and don’t be afraid to pour some extra buffalo sauce on top!
