Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe
Lettuce wraps have recently become certainly one of my favorite things to have for lunch, snack or dinner. They’re really easy to create and I will prep the filling ahead of time and appreciate it for multiple meals.
One of the more recent ones has been, these low carb Buffalo Chicken wraps. I will always be a supporter of Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip, and I’ll admit that I have eaten it with a scoop on many occasions. But I have now added it to a leaf of bib lettuce, added some celery and a drizzle of ranch dressing and OH YUM!! They’re delish!
These first came into being when I had a ton of left over buffalo chicken dip, and since then I have tweaked it a bit to get it really right.
While I enjoy how easy it is to just toss everything in the crockpot and make buffalo chicken dip I don’t always want to attend for the crockpot to cook it. And so i developed this oven baked buffalo chicken that is good for making buffalo chicken lettuce wraps!
Now, should you choose have left over buffalo chicken dip you are able to totally use that to create these buffalo chicken lettuce wraps. If you don’t have any buffalo chicken dip on hand, you may make this oven baked buffalo chicken dip and use it to create your buffalo chicken lettuce wraps.
Fresh Chicken or Canned Chicken?
I like to cook fresh chicken when I am making these wraps if I have the time. Sometimes I have the time, other times I do not. One way to make certain I have chicken on hand is always to cook a number of chicken in front of time.
When I know I am going to be running short punctually throughout the week, I’ll toss a few chicken breasts into the crockpot with a little salt and pepper and let them cook for 3 hours. Then I shred them or perhaps store them in a airtight container to make use of throughout the week as needed.
You can make also get this buffalo chicken lettuce wraps recipe with canned chicken or rotisserie chicken if you’re running short on time. I favor using a rotisserie chicken over canned chicken, but either one will work.

What Lettuce is best for Chicken Wraps?
When I am making almost any chicken wrap and other dish I personally use either bib lettuce or romaine lettuce. I find both of these kinds of lettuce hold up the very best when filling them with tasty goodness.
You should use iceburg lettuce if that is all you’ve got on hand, however I find so it rips easier then I prefer my lettuce to rip and then I end up with chaos at occasions when I am eating them.Print
