A fun, low carb take on buffalo chicken keeping all the traditional flavors, including celery and blue cheese, ready to become a plate of spicy lettuce wraps.
Being out of chicken wings isn’t an ideal situation, but, sadly, it happens. When a buffalo chicken craving hits and there aren’t any wings in sight, creativity is required. In my case, lettuce wraps were the answer since I had ground chicken, buffalo sauce, and romaine on hand.
Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe Notes
Enjoy the buffalo chicken mix sans lettuce to reduce messy hands.
The blue cheese isn’t overpowering in the mix, but you can taste it, add more if you want or add some as a garnish if you want a stronger blue cheese flavor.
Cook the celery a bit longer if you don’t want the crunch, although I think the crunch a highlight of the recipe, giving a nod to the tradition of celery as a side for hot wings.
Increase fat and fiber with a side of avocado.
