I have enjoyed Recipe Makeover Week! I have seen some great recipes from fantastic food bloggers! Today I introduce one of the easiest lettuce wraps around! They are not only delicious but quick to prepare also! I grilled my chicken breasts on my gas grill. I used Smokin'O's, a wonderful product that adds wood fire flavor to whatever you are grilling. They add that great smoky flavor without having to spend hours smoking your food. They are also 100% natural wood. The wood smoker is placed right on the grill! The added flavor is just amazing!
- come in three flavors Original, Mesquite, and Applewood
- 100% natural
- chemical free
- no binders
- ready to grill in 10 minutes
Who does not love Buffalo Chicken Wings, but once they hit the deep fryer, just way too many unnecessary calories for me! I love these Easy Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wings because I get the delicious flavors without all the extra calories. In about ½ hour I have super tasty Grilled Buffalo Chicken. I tend to make a bunch of the chicken because my kids eat them non-stop. Besides these tasty lettuce wraps, the grilled buffalo chicken is awesome in salads, sandwiches, wraps, quesadillas, tacos. I could go on and on!
How to make Easy Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps:
- I used red leaf lettuce, any large leaf lettuce you like will work too!
- You don't even need to marinate this chicken. Baste the chicken with the Buffalo Sauce and grill.
- While the chicken grills, I dice up my veggies and wash the lettuce! What is also great is that I add more veggies than meat for me!
- Just another way to keep adding those veggies into my diet! I think I need to make this again today! They are yummy!
