TBH I'm really not much of a sports fan, but you know what I can get on board with? Game day munchies, especially if hot wings (boneless please, I can't do the whole bone-in thing!) are involved. I recently made these Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps for a sports-themed potluck at work and they were a huge hit! The soft Bibb lettuce provides the perfect vessel for the yummy buffalo chicken salad, which combines the best of hot wings: buffalo sauce, celery, and bleu cheese. You won't even miss regular ol' hot wings!
Not only are these yummy... and healthy-ish... to munch on, they can work as a meal. Keep reading for this easy-peasy recipe:
