How to make low-carb buffalo chicken lettuce wraps

Print this recipe
Buffalo wings are a total guilty pleasure of mine. I can’t get enough of the combo of spicy hot sauce with savory chicken and pungent blue cheese. The recipe below captures all those flavors in a healthy, low-carb lettuce wrap.
This is an exceptional recipe to serve for a game-day party or any time you might normally think of serving wings. You could wrap it in a tortilla, or even load it onto a French roll for a Buffalo wing sandwich, but I love the refreshing crunch of lettuce leaves with the spicy richness of the dish.

1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup Frank's Hot Wing Sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

1/2 cup chunky blue cheese dressing (or substitute ½ cup crumbled blue cheese)
Melt the butter in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Stir in the hot sauce and honey, and heat to a simmer. Stir in the shredded chicken and cook just until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
To serve, arrange the lettuce leaves on serving plates and spoon the chicken mixture into them. Garnish with the diced celery and dressing.

Eating dessert is a double-edged sword. The taste of gooey sweetness on the tongue and throat brings a surprising amount of pleasure. But the 'moment on the lips, forever on the hips' guilt feels equally as bad.
