Servings: 6 persons

Prep time: 40 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Additional time: 40 minutes

Total time: 1 hour 50 minutes


  • 1 1/2 pounds Boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce, plus a little more for drizzling over the finished chicken if you prefer
  • 2 cups Plain panko bread crumbs
  • 4-6 Large soft leaves of lettuce
  • 1 cup Cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup Diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Diced avocado
  • Blue cheese (or ranch) dressing & scallions to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and lightly grease (I used cooking spray) a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Toss the chicken in the 1/2 cup buffalo sauce, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Pour the breadcrumbs into a shallow dish. Coat each chicken piece evenly and place them on the prepared baking sheet. The baking sheet will get pretty crowded, and it’s okay.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. You can toss the baked chicken with the extra buffalo sauce.
  5. Fill each lettuce leaf with quinoa, tomatoes, and avocado to assemble the wraps. Top with the crispy baked buffalo chicken, drizzle with the blue cheese and sprinkle with the green onions.
  6. These are also delicious cold lunches if you prepare the chicken and refrigerate it before serving.

How to Store the High-Protein Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps differ from the recipe you want to store for the long haul. You will want to eat them once they are made. You can, however, prep your ingredients ahead of time before you make them.

Toss our chicken in the buffalo sauce, separate our lettuce leaves, put them into baggies, and chop our vegetables, so when we are ready to eat, all we need to do is assemble.
