Just 6 ingredients is all you need to make quick and Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wrap appetizers for your next party.

  • Breaded chicken nuggets: Use-store bought to save loads of time. They’re moist, juicy and crisp on outside

  • Celery: Similar concept, adds crunch and compliments the buffalo chicken
