Ingredients

  • 2 ea Chicken Breasts about 1.5 lbs total
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo Sauce
  • 1 cup Panko Crumbs More or less depending on how much is needed
  • 1 ea Heart of Romaine Broken into individual wraps
  • 1 tbs Butter
  • 1 ea Blue Cheese Optional – Crumbled
  • 1 ea Ranch Dressing Optional
  • 1 ea Tomato Optional – Diced
  • 1 ea Celery Optional – Chopped
  • 1 ea Chives Optional – Chopped

Instructions

  • Gather your ingredients. You'll note I made half of this batch with a medium sauce and half with a hot sauce. Set oven for 400 degrees.
  • Cut the chicken into small, bite sized pieces.
  • Warm the hot sauce and melt butter in a small pot. Stir. Turn off heat.
  • Add the chicken and ensure it is well coated in sauce.
  • In small bathes, roll the chicken in the panko. Place onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake in over for 20 minutes.
  • If desired, add a little hot sauce to a bowl. Add chicken, cover, and shake. This will give your chicken quite a bit more of the hot sauce flavoring.
  • Make your wrap and enjoy!

Notes

  • If breaded chicken isn’t your thing or this dish simply needs to be healthier, try smoking and shredding a chicken.  Then toss that with the hot sauce and serve.
