Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I love chicken and my husband loves buffalo anything.  I found this recipe on the skinny taste blog and thought that it might be a great change from the tacos I make all the time.  Better yet they are only 3 points per serving, without the ranch dressing.

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps:


24 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves
16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
2/3 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
6 large lettuce leaves, Bibb or Iceberg
4 carrots, cut into matchsticks
1 teaspoon ranch or blue cheese dressing per wrap

Season the chicken breast with the onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika.  Combine the chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth in a crock pot.  If there isn't enough broth to cover the chicken add some water.  Cover and cook on high 4 hours or low for 8-ish.

Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken and return it to the slow cooker with the broth and hot sauce.  Set on high for an additional 30 minutes. Makes 3 cups chicken.

To prepare lettuce cups, place 1/2 cup buffalo chicken in each leaf, top with carrots and dressing of your choice.


  1. YUMMY! If only Hunter liked buffalo sauce; I however, could eat it daily! :)

  2. You know what you could do... make a batch for you and then make a non-buffalo version for him. (Or order him a pizza)
