Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Looking for an easy and light weeknight meal? These Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps are bursting with flavor and still skinny!

Warm weather for us means lighter food, which is why I love lettuce wraps this time of year.  You don’t lose out on any of the flavor and you also don’t have that heavy feeling after dinner.  We always seem to be running out the door once the nice weather hits.  Especially since we threw a puppy into the mix.  Now, we’re running out to take him on walks and train him.  It’s a little like having a newborn except that they can be much more high strung and get into things.

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Blue Cheese Dressing

These buffalo chicken lettuce wraps are so quick that I don’t need to worry about what he is getting into because I can be in and out the kitchen in less than twenty minutes.  Lettuce wraps have definitely become a common occurrence around our house since he arrived.  We need quick, easy and delicious and this fits the bill.

      Another Turkish JERK!! Sad that they even got it. Did he think the humane way to get rid of it was to shoot it? That man is a real ass. I hope he looses all his customers and his business!!

      Thanks for the update!Any word on Ethiopian?They've loaded flights in the system that would mean 1 aircraft flying on Aug 1, a second aircraft on Aug 16 and a third on Sep 16. That would mean July delivery of the first aircraft which would slot them between Qatar and LAN.Seems unlikely given the movements on the line???ThanksA

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that
    “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.

    Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog! http://www.yahoo.net
