Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I absolutely LOVE the Skinny Taste website!  There is always something healthy, easy, and delicious waiting for me to put together!  This was no brainer for me since I LOVE buffalo wings and blue cheese.  Don't like blue cheese?  Switch it to ranch.  Do what you like.  I thought this was perfect as is!

The first thing you do is put the chicken breasts into a crock pot with celery, onion, garlic and chicken broth.  It cooks for  4 hours, then you add then you shred it.  I was dreading this part because it can take forever to shred meat.  But then I read you could put the cooked meat in a kitchen aid mixer on low and let it do all the work for you!  Well, that was my plan...but this just falls apart as you are taking it out of the crock pot, so I just used forks. 

Then you put the shredded chicken, some broth and hot sauce in the crock pot and cook another 30 minutes.  

Prepare your toppings and dressing while you are waiting.  The Low Fat Creamy Blue Cheese dressing is super easy and delicious!  Just click the link for the recipe.  There is also a skinny ranch recipe on the website.  

Use bib lettuce!  We used this red leaf for leftovers and they tear easily, so you want  a sturdy leaf to wrap up this goodness!  I made this for bunco and the girls loved it.  We had leftovers and the family loved it too!!  It's a winner and it feeds a lot of people!  I especially love the carrot and celery garnish, very creative and adds a crunch.

Hope you try it.  It is a nice switch on a classic hot wing dipped in blue cheese.  I will make these again soon!
