Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Cups

Josh and I wanted something easy and light for dinner that gave a little punch of spicy. I LOVE my hot wings...that would probably be my biggest downfall, trying to stay on the lifestyle.  I found this recipe in the book "Practical Paleo" and honestly, this book is FULL of wonderful recipes and scientific reasoning why Paleo is such a great lifestyle to choose. 

Try these for a light and healthy dinner....with a HUGE punch of spice!

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Cups

1-lb chicken thighs, boneless, skinless and cut into 1/2 inch strips
EVOO or coconut oil
2 t Chipotle Chili Powder
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder
Sea salt and pepper
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup cherry/grape tomatoes sliced in half
1 avocado, sliced
1 head butter lettuce or Romaine

Cut the chicken into 1/2 inch strips and coat with the seasonings well.

Warm oil in skillet and cook chicken 5-10 minutes or until white all the way through.  While they are cooking, slice and cut all your veggies to dress your cups

Make cups out of the head of lettuce and place the cooked chicken in the middle.

Dress with green onions, tomatoes, avocado and ENJOY!!!  Make sure you have a napkin around!  Very juicy!

These were delish!  Very spicy, yet very light.  Didn't feel miserable after eating!  You can add a little more Chipotle spice to it if you want it extra hot.
