Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This one is a real treat, you guys! Delicious, easy to make, and fiance approved. Not to mention it’s a much healthier alternative when you’re craving buffalo wings. Which, for us, is pretty much always. 🙂 So whip out that helpful crockpot and give this one a try! If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can also boil the chicken on a stovetop– it’s just as delicious that way.

Instructions:

In a slow cooker, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn’t enough). Cover and cook on high 4 hours.

Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the slow cooker with the 1/2 cup broth and the hot sauce and set to 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 1/4 cup shredded carrots, celery and dressing of your choice. Wrap up and start eating!
