  • 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
  • Salt
  • 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!
