Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I made one of my favorite dishes this weekend, Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps. It is super easy, healthy and DELICIOUS! I sometimes pair it with a bowl of fresh fruit which makes a refreshing meal. Sharing the recipe with you here:

Lettuce Wraps 

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

For the Chicken:

24 oz boneless skinless chicken breast (approximately 4 chicken breasts)

Slap Your Mama’s seasoning

1 celery stalk

½ onion, diced

2 cloves garlic

16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth

Can of water chestnuts, drained and roughly chopped

½ cup hot cayenne pepper sauce (I use a mixture of Frank’s & Hooter’s)

For the Wraps:

6 large lettuce leaves (Bibb, Iceberg or Butter)

1 ½ cups shredded carrots

2 large celery stalks, cut into 2 inch matchsticks

Blue cheese crumbles


In a crock pot, add chicken and season to your liking, add onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken and use water if the broth isn’t enough). Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

Remove the chicken from the crock pot, reserve ½ cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the crock pot with the ½ cup broth, the ½ cup hot sauce and the water chestnuts. Set on high for an additional 30 minutes. This should make 3 cups of chicken, sometimes more if you are using extra-large chicken breasts.

To prepare lettuce cups, place ½ cup buffalo chicken in each leaf, top with ¼ cup shredded carrots, celery and blue cheese if you like. Wrap it all up and enjoy!

Welcome! I am the bayou gypsy, born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Although I have spread my wings in the great cities of Austin, Seattle and Delray Beach, the bayou state kept calling me back home in 2007. Thank goodness for the pull back home because that is where I met and married my husband, Andrew. We relocated to 7 acres in Zachary, LA and have started life on a farm. It's the land of bayous, fishing, hunting, four wheelers, trucks, nutria, deer, cows, three rescue pups named Abby James, Dixie and Gypsy, two rescue horses named Sparkle and Freedom, 20 chickens, 2 turkeys named Leroy & Luann and everything else southern. I have started this personal blog to chronicle our new found farm life, the battles and blessings of our ongoing infertility, our recent adoption and the exciting adventures this bayou gypsy and her cowboy get into on the regular. I dabble in a little bit of everything and will share it all with you one wild ride at a time. Come wander with me...y'all!
