Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Delicious and easy, these Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps are a crunchy, spicy recipe that can be a great appetizer for side, but also a perfect meal as well! A perfect healthy dish that has the right amount of hot sauce to spice things up!
- 1 ½ lb chicken thighs (or breast)
- ½ c hot sauce ( I used Frank's)
- 2 celery stalks
- ½ onion
- 4 T butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon cracked Pepper
- 8 butter, romaine or iceberg lettuce leaves
- Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing
Chop or cut chicken into very small pieces. Finely dice onion and celery. Season chicken with garlic powder, pepper and desired amount of salt.
Warm frying pan to medium high and add a drizzle of olive oil or spray with cooking oil spray. Add celery and onion and cook until onion starts to become translucent.
Add chicken and stir frequently to cook. While chicken is cooking, melt butter in microwave and then whisk together with hot sauce and set aside.
When chicken is fully cooked, turn heat to low and pour buffalo sauce over chicken and stir to coat evenly. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes to to help sauce thicken slightly.
Spoon into lettuce cups and drizzle with dressing or use it for dipping on the side!
