I know I post a lot of food recipes on here, and that is because I love to share great recipes with you guys as I find them myself! Cooking is slowly but surely becoming something my husband and I enjoy more and more with each new recipe, and is also a way we get to spend time together and connect. We love trying new things in the kitchen and both putting our own spin on whatever recipes we come across!
Now, what I am about to say I don’t say lightly… but this recipe is hands down my favorite recipe that we have tried thus far! They are simple Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Super tasty, fresh, spicy and not to mention pretty healthy. The original recipe can be found here, but like I said, we really enjoy twisting certain things here and there. If seeing that picture isn’t enticing enough, let me show you how ours turned out.
Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- 1 Package Simple Truth Lean Chicken Tenders
- 1 Big Roll of Iceburg Lettuce the brand we used here was Foxy from Kroger
- 1 Cup of Red Hot's Hot Sauce
- 2 Cups of Corn Flakes
- 1 Avocado
- 3 Tomato Slices
- 1/3 of a White Onion
- Ranch Dressing
- Salt & Pepper
First, prepare the chicken by cutting into small, bite size pieces and seasoning with salt and pepper. Then place raw chicken in a bowl with the 1 cup of hot sauce and let it sit in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. During this time, crumble up the corn flakes either by hand, or in my case I used a small electric chopper. Toss buffalo chicken and corn flakes in a bowl and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees. While the chicken is cooking, chop up your avocado into small pieces, and chop the onions and tomato as well. Combine these three ingredients in a small bowl to let the flavors sit together. Take the chicken out when done and place onto a sleeve of lettuce. Place your guacamole mixture on top and finish with a drizzle of ranch dressing.
This will make about 2 and a half wraps, so adjust as needed to fit your family! The lettuce and guac mixture really gave the dish that extra boost of crispness and fresh taste! These are very filling but not in a “I think I need to lay down in a ball on the floor” kind of way 🙂 This is a recipe we have already made a few times within the last couple of months and will definitely stay at the top of our favorites list!
What did you think of the recipe? I’d love to hear if you liked it/different things you did to suit it to your tastes!!
