Baked Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Chris had a hankerin’ for Buffalo Wings, but really more for Buffalo wing sauce since neither of us is a huge fan of nibbling on lil ol’ chicken wings.  A drumstick, sure, I can handle that. But teeny tiny chicken wang bones are so tedious.

Know what’s not tedious? Boneless, crispy chicken tenders in Buffalo sauce with diced celery and carrots, wrapped up in a lil lettuce leaf with blue cheese sauce for easy eating.

Those are so not-tedious, in fact, you could eat a hundred in like 30 seconds I bet if you were a champion competitive eater.

If you are just a normal person, you could still easily eat two in about 20 minutes. The key word being “easily” because if there’s one thing about lettuce wraps, they are pretty easy to eat.

    These came out super tasty! But mine didn’t turn out crispy, even though I baked them on the cooking rack on top of the baking sheet. What did I do wrong? I baked at 450 for about 17 mins, I didn’t want the chicken to be dry, which it wasn’t. 🙂

      Hi Elisia!
      Be sure to drain the extra marinade well before rolling in crumbs. Since these are so low-fat, the cereal is what provides the crunch but you don’t want it to get too soaked in marinade.
