Few things tempt our tastebuds more than Buffalo chicken, but the calories and carbs that come with breaded and fried chicken remind us that, indeed, there's no such thing as a free lunch. But wait! Our version uses a tender grilled chicken breast brushed with tangy Buffalo sauce and served atop a salad with creamy ranch dressing. With this low-cal, low-carb entree salad, you get all the flavor and none of the guilt. Compromise shmompromise!
