Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Okay these were so yummy and filling!  When I think buffalo wings I think junk food.  This was a great low calorie variation!  Plus anything I can put bleu cheese on is always great in my book :)

 I wanted a crockpot recipe and couldn't find one so I decided to make my own my piecing together parts of other recipes I've seen. I got the lettuce wrap idea from ellaclaireinspired.com.  You can check out her original recipe by clicking on the link. If you're not into the whole lettuce wrap thing you can definitely put this on rolls too. This chicken is great and could be used any way you want.  The girls ate theirs mixed into homemade mac and cheese.  Click here for my baked macaroni recipe.

The lettuce wraps came together super fast so we will definitely be making them again.  Enjoy!

Crock pot Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Makes about 16 lettuce wraps)

For Chicken:
4 medium chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups Franks Buffalo wing sauce (divided)
1 tsp. celery seed
2 T. butter

For toppings:
reduced fat bleu cheese crumbles
ranch dressing
2 stalks celery (cut in half length wise then sliced)
1 head iceburg lettuce

Add chicken breasts, 1 cup of buffalo sauce and celery seed to crockpot. Cook on low for 6 hours or until chicken is cooked through.  Drain any excess liquid and shred chicken.  Add last 1/2 cup of buffalo sauce and butter and continue cooking 15 minutes or until butter is completely melted and combined.

When chicken is cooked fill each leaf of lettuce with chicken and top with celery, bleu cheese and dressing as desired. 


  1. Is this spicy? Could your girls really eat the meat? I love buffalo wings but I think spicy.

    1. They were a little spicy but not too bad! The lettuce and celery really help to mellow it out. I think they sell different heat levels of the wing sauce too. My girls like it a little spicy though :)
