Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2  red onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Frank's red hot Buffalo Sauce
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 16 Bibb lettuce leaves, washed and separated
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • Blue cheese salad dressing
  • 1 avocado, diced into small chunks

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in medium skillet over medium heat, add garlic, cabbage, and carrots. Stir frequently until cabbage is cooked and wilted. Add black pepper and salt as desired; remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a separate large skillet, heat 1 tsp of olive oil on medium-high heat and add chicken. Cook chicken until juices run clear, about 6-8 minutes.

  3. Add cabbage mixture to chicken. Turn heat to low; add Buffalo sauce and cover. Simmer for about 10 minutes to let flavors sink in.
  4. Scoop chicken into the lettuce. Top each lettuce wrap with 1 teaspoon blue cheese, diced avocado, and a sprinkle of cilantro.
  5. For added crunch add crushed tortilla chips on top! Serves 4.
