Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Great for all Phases)
■24 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
■1 celery stalk
■1/2 onion, diced (phase IV only)
■1 clove garlic
■16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
■1/2 cup hot cayenne pepper sauce (I used Frank’s) Read the label and make sure it’s all zeros
For the wraps:
■6 large lettuce leaves, Bibb or Iceberg
■1 1/2 cups shredded carrots (phase IV only)
■2 large celery stalks, cut into 2 inch matchsticks
In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn’t enough). Cover and cook on high 4 hours.
Remove the chicken from pot,
reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest.
Shred the chicken with two forks,
return to the slow cooker with the 1/2 cup broth and the hot sauce and set to on high for an additional 30 minutes. Makes 3 cups chicken.
To prepare lettuce cups, place 1/2 cup buffalo chicken in each leaf, top with 1/4 cup shredded carrots, celery and dressing of your choice. Wrap up and start eating!
