Buffalo chicken lettuce wraps made with tangy sauce and served with creamy coleslaw in a crisp lettuce cup. SO easy, quick, and simple. Very weeknight-friendly too!




  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. cider or white vinegar
  • 2 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • Lettuce for serving, iceberg or butter lettuce


  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, whole milk
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 Tbsp. cider of white vinegar
  • 2 green onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper, to taste



  1. Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.


  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the celery for few minutes or until tender.
  2. Add ground chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 4-5 minutes, while breaking up the meat with a spoon.
  3. Stir in sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring the sauce to a quick simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes, covered.
  4. Serve the buffalo chicken in a lettuce cup with coleslaw and extra cilantro + green onions, if desired.


  1. Add Greek yogurt, cilantro, vinegar, green onions, garlic, and honey to a bowl of food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Pulse until smooth.
  2. Toss with coleslaw until combined. Add 1-2 tablespoons of oil, such as avocado or olive oil for extra creaminess.


  • Coleslaw – you can sub mayo or do a 50/50 for the Greek yogurt.
  • Leftovers – buffalo ground chicken mixture will last in the fridge for 3-4 days when stored properly in an airtight container. The slaw for about 3-5 days. Keep everything refrigerated separately and assemble as needed. It also makes a delish next-day salad with a drizzle of buttermilk ranch dressing.
