Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Helllllooooo buff chick!
Another great party food that takes zero time to make. I threw the chicken in the crockpot and ran a bunch of errands, cleaned the house, then put it onto lettuce and everyone was like "whoa this is great how do you find time to cook like this?!" Jokes on them! Sidenote-I used to work in a restaurant that had a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and the abbreviation was "Buff Chick" which I always found hilarious. I told that story to everyone as we ate Buff Chick Wraps and no one else thought it was funny. Buff Chick? No one?! Really??

Also if you don't have a crockpot get your butt to Goodwill and drop $10 on one. I love mine. Love love love. If you don't have access to a Goodwill, or feel weird about "used" crockpots Amazon has great options for inexpensive crockpots here.

Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time:4 hours (in the crockpot)
Servings:  12 lettuce wraps (I made mine kind of small)

Ingredients:
  • 4 lbs Chicken Breast- or 2-3 large chicken breasts ($12.00)
  • 1 cup Frank's Wing Sauce ($2.00)
  • 1 head of lettuce ($2.00)
  • 3/4 cup Blue Cheese Crumbles ($3.00)

Put the thawed chicken breasts in the crockpot with the cup of sauce and cook on medium for 4 hours. If you are using frozen chicken breasts give them an extra hour to cook. I also added in some garlic powder since we love garlic so much around here.

After 4 hours (your house will smell amaazzz) transfer the chicken onto a plate. It should be suuuper tender. Using two forks, pull apart the chicken until you have a plate of shredded chicken. Put it back into the crockpot (there should be lots of sauce still sitting in there) for about 20 minutes (still on medium). After 20 minutes, transfer all the chicken to a bowl or tupperware with the extra sauce. Let it cool off  in the fridge and absorb more of the sauce. After it has had time to set, put a few spoonfuls into each lettuce cup and sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles.


Make sure you store your lettuce correctly so it can stay fresh for THREE weeks! Check out my post on fresh food storage
