Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I was searching for recipes to make for the Super Bowl and came across this amazing twist on Buffalo Wings. It’s a little healthier than the typical ‘chicken wing’ and it’s got that same crispy, wonderful flavor.

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

1 lb boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce
2 cups plain Panko bread crumbs
4-6 large leaves of Boston lettuce
1 cup cooked white rice
Sliced black olives
Bleu cheese dressing
Scallions for garnish

  1. Preheat the oven to 375º F.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. Marinate the chicken in a container with the 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Pour the Panko breadcrumbs into a shallow dish.
  5. Coat the chicken pieces evenly with the Panko and place them in the baking pan.
  6. Bake the chicken for 30 minutes.
  7. To assemble the wraps, fill each leaf of lettuce with the rice, chicken and top with black olives. Drizzle the Bleu Cheese dressing over the chicken. And then add the scallions.
