What Makes This Recipe So Good

Chickpeas – Loaded with protein, chickpeas are the perfect vegetarian option instead of chicken. They are super filling and allow the other flavors of the bowls to shine.
Buffalo sauce – You can use store-bought or make your own, but this tart, spicy sauce typically made from vinegar-y hot sauce and butter (or plant-based cream if vegan) is bright and gives the chickpeas a major kick.
Half and half or non-dairy cream – Adding a little bit of thick cream helps make the buffalo sauce richer and creamier.
Ranch and blue cheese crumbles – The ultimate dip and sides for buffalo wings, the ranch adds a little sweetness and an extra tang, while the blue cheese is sharp and creamy.
