Make a quick and delicious dinner or low carb lunch with these buffalo chicken lettuce cups! They are full of protein and low in carbs.
Sometimes the best dinners come as a surprise. Like the evenings where you don’t know what to make, but you just happen to have a bunch of stuff on hand that magically forms a dinner. That’s what happened with these buffalo chicken lettuce cups.
My two favorite ways to cook chicken breasts…in the Instant Pot or in the slow cooker.
I always have shredded chicken cooked and in the fridge. It’s just part of my food prep, and it may be the only then I am consistent about prepping. Oh and I always have buffalo sauce too. I’m not sure what happened, because I used to not like it. But in the past year something changed and it’s a flavor that I crave from time to time. So I buy the big jars of it at the market.
These buffalo chicken lettuce cups made a quick and perfect weeknight dinner. I’ve been playing with intermittent fasting, and I have my last meal before 7 pm. Well, it was 6:20, so I had to act quick. While the chicken heated up, I chopped veggies and washed the butter lettuce. By 6:40 I was eating! Not bad, huh?
