Lettuce wraps have been a favorite quick-fix menu item that my husband and I have loved for years.


The tender, flavorful buffalo chicken all encased in crisp iceberg lettuce was just perfect – fresh tasting even.

To make them, I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and chopped them into about 1-inch pieces. Then, I sauted the chicken in my large skillet with a bit of olive oil for about 7-10 minutes. Once the chicken was cooked through, I tossed in diced red onion, garlic, and mushrooms along with buffalo sauce and allowed it all to simmer for about 3 minutes.

As that was simmering, I began pulling apart the head of my iceberg lettuce to make assembly even easier.

Rather than making everyone’s buffalo chicken lettuce wraps for them, I simply made a lettuce wrap buffet including a platter of the lettuce leaves, a bowl for the buffalo chicken, toppings of celery and carrot sticks (since they normally go with buffalo wings!), and some blue cheese crumbles. Beside the buffet was a bowl of blue cheese dip as a sauce as well as some ranch dressing for spooning onto the wrap as a final touch before eating.

All in all, we were enjoying our buffalo chicken lettuce wraps 15 minutes after I began cooking them.

And since they only took 15 minutes to prepare, they are perfect for a quick-fix lunch or supper even on those busiest of days!

Here’s my buffalo chicken lettuce wraps recipe. I hope you love them as much as we did.

    I love to bake but with six kids i need to cook every day.. i like to cook one pan meals.. if i can put it into one pan or crock pot, pressure cooker etc. and finish it all up in one pan with layers of flavor is what I like the best.. simplicity at its best!
