We took the finger-licking beauty of a Buffalo wing experience and wrapped it in a tortilla--because that's how you win a weeknight.
2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot)
1 teaspoon unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 tablespoons buttermilk
2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
1 ounce blue cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup)
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1 small celery stalk, thinly sliced
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
Est. added sugars 0g
How to Make It
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Cut chicken in half horizontally to form 4 cutlets; sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Arrange on pan coated with cooking spray. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan; thinly slice. Combine hot sauce, butter, and red pepper; stir with a whisk. Add chicken to bowl; toss.
Combine buttermilk, mayonnaise, and cheese in a bowl, mashing with a fork. Add lettuce and celery to bowl; toss.
Warm tortillas according to package instructions. Divide chicken mixture evenly among tortillas; top with lettuce mixture.
These are excellent and super easy to make. I doubled the lettuce mixture because I like alot of lettuce on my taco but you don't have to. Also used Feta instead of blue because that's what I had. 2 Thumbs up!!
Anything with Buffalo sauce is a winner in my book and these are over the top! I also doubled the lettuce and celery just to get in more veggies. Instead of buttermilk, I used skim milk. I served them with sauteed diced zucchini, garlic, drained canned diced tomatoes, oregano, cumin, black pepper and ground red pepper. A quick and easy weeknight dinner.
This is super fast and easy to make. I doubled the recipe, and I wish that I had quadrupled it!My one recommendation would be to skip the buttermilk altogether. It really doesn't do anything but make the lettuce mixture a dripping mess. Especially for leftovers, it turns into soup and drips everywhere. Some shredded lettuce mixed with blue cheese and a little mayo will do the trick.I served this with a kale-chickpea salad, and it was a big hit.
These were very tasty but lacked a little "something." To add some flavor layers and something extra simply add 1/2 cup tomatoes, 1/3 cup onions, and grate colby jack or taco mix cheese over the finished product. Otherwise it tastes like buffalo chicken, lettuce, and bleu cheese. And That's It.
I was a little nervous about serving this to my family due to the heat and the fact that I am the only one that likes blue cheese. IT WAS A HIT! My husband told me to put it on my 'make again' list and my kid who hates cheese didn't even mention it! It was spicy, but not overly so. I had shredded cabbage on hand so I used that instead of lettuce. I spread the blue cheese sauce on the tortillas and topped with the chicken and cabbage. So good, I wish I had leftovers!
