Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Last week, I saw about five posts about DIY Buffalo Chicken Wraps and I thought: Well, hey. We can recreate that in our own way pretty easily!
-4-5 chicken breasts
-1/2 diced onion
-1 diced shallot
-3 cloves garlic
-1 jar of Frank’s Hot Sauce
-Chicken Stock

-Butter Lettuce
-Diced Carrots
-Diced Celery

-1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (my store was out of Greek so used regular. Def. recommend purchasing Greek. I've made this before and it's better that way.).
1-Packet Ranch Dip


In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and chicken stock (enough to cover your chicken). Cover with lid and cook on high 4 hours.
After 4 hours: Split meat with two forks. Drain liquid minus a little bit left at the bottom (about 1/2 - 3/4 cup). Return shredded meat to crock pot. Add Frank's Hot Sauce. Heat on HIGH for 30 more minutes. After 30 minutes, remove from crock pot, dish into butter lettuce "wraps", top with the ranch mix + carrots + celery.

Eat away!

Can I sub honey bbq sauce instead? I don't do too well with spicy! Either way this sounds like a healthy and yummy idea. :)

Buffalo chicken is seriously one of my most favorite things ever, but wings are so bad for you! I think this is a great and healthy alternative! Plus, the fact that you make it in the crock pot makes it even better!
