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:
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!
