Bariatric patients – these Slow Cooker Shredded Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps are easy, FULL of flavor and brings in 17 grams of protein for one serving! (One serving is two lettuce wraps).

I love the moisture this chicken keeps as it cooks in the slow cooker with broth and hot sauce. Get creative with other seasonings as you’d wish but this will provide LOTS of flavor as it is too! I used Franks® Hot Sauce in my recipe but you can use any of your favorite bottle hot sauce or wing sauce options.

Use leftovers and make a recipe similar to this Buffalo Chicken Salad…makes a great lunch!!
