Lightened up breaded baked little chicken bites tossed in delicious buffalo wing sauce, wrapped with quinoa and fresh veggies in a leaf of buttery lettuce. Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps make a delicious light lunch or dinner – like a salad you can eat with your hands!
I think hot sauce might be the greatest condiment ever invented. Buffalo sauce is definitely the best thing to ever happen to chicken.
It is.
Keeping it real here you guys: I cannot be held responsible for the words that end up in this post today because I think I had like 1.6 hours of sleep.
You might just wanna do that thing where you scroll to the end and read the recipe because run-on sentences, grammatical errors, and spell-checks on words I could spell since I was 10 are definitely happening here today.
Last night Betty and Charlie were possessed by the lunar eclipse blood moon and decided that 2:30 a.m. was the perfect time to run around and have a dog party. Also 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.
AND because of the lunar eclipse blood moon, I’d set my alarm for 5 a.m. so Evan and I could go camp in the driveway and watch the coolness unfold.



INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ½ cup buffalo sauce, plus a little more for drizzling over the finished chicken if you prefer
  • 2 cups plain panko bread crumbs
  • 4-6 large soft leaves of lettuce (I used Boston Bibb Lettuce)
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup diced avocado
  • blue cheese (or ranch) dressing & scallions to garnish
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and lightly grease (I used cooking spray) a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Toss the chicken in the ½ cup buffalo sauce, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Pour the breadcrumbs into a shallow dish. Coat each chicken piece evenly and place them on the prepared baking sheet. The baking sheet will get pretty crowded -- it's okay.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. You can toss the baked chicken with the extra buffalo sauce if you like.
  5. To assemble the wraps, fill each leaf of lettuce with quinoa, tomatoes, and avocado. Top with the crispy baked buffalo chicken, drizzle with the blue cheese, and sprinkle with the green onions.
  6. These are also a delicious cold lunch if you prepare the chicken ahead of time and refrigerate it before serving.
