Healthy 21 Day Fix Twist ~ Buffalo Chicken

I love it when I find a clean eating, healthy recipe that satisfies my taste buds. This one definitely fits the bill! Some would argue that the blue cheese crumbles aren’t clean, but they do add a fabulous pop of flavor. If you’re really trying to cut down on fat, you can omit them or just put an eensy-beensy bit on top.
