Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Monday, April 14, 2014

I've never had lettuce wraps before, but this recipe looked DELICIOUS! It was really easy to make, too!  I love anything that I can throw in the crock pot before work and not have to prepare dinner when I get home!

For the chicken:

2.5 lbs chicken (frozen or thawed)
1 celery stalk
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove garlic
16 oz chicken broth
1/2 cup hot sauce

For the wraps:
Large lettuce leaves
Shredded carrots
Celery stocks cut into 2 inch match sticks

Put chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth in the crock pot.  Add water if needed, so that the chicken is covered.  Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.
Remove the chicken from the crock pot, reserve 1/2 cup of broth and discard the rest.  Shred the chicken and return to the crock pot with 1/2 cup broth and hot sauce.  Cook on high for an additional 30 minutes.

To prepare the lettuce wraps, I stacked a few pieces of lettuce on top of each other to make the wrap thicker.  Put chicken in the middle, add carrots and celery sticks, and top with a dressing of your choice!  Wrap it up and dig in!
this recipe was found on skinnytaste.com

It makes quite a bit of chicken. We used the leftover for lunches, and chicken quesadillas!
