Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I have a great recipe to share with you today for the upcoming big game! These are a really yummy twist on the traditional buffalo wings. The spiciness chicken, the crispness of the lettuce and celery, the creaminess of the blue cheese, all put this delicious appetizer up there as one of my all time favorites. And, it really comes together fairly quickly and easily.
You will need:
2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2 Tbls. butter
1/2 Tbls. olive oil
1/2 cup Franks Wing Sauce
1/2 tsp. celery seed
pepper to taste
1/2 C. thinly sliced celery
blue cheese crumbles
ranch dressing
2 heads of lettuce
In a large pan, cook and shred your chicken {to cook mine, I just put the chicken in the pan with 1/2 cup of water, shredding as it cooks. By the time it is finished cooking, all of the water cooks off}.
Keep the pan on medium heat. Add butter and olive oil, stirring. Add Franks and celery seed. Add pepper to taste. Once sauce begins to be bubbly, remove from heat. Add thinly sliced celery.  
Spoon into lettuce leaves, sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles and drizzle with a little ranch dressing. Serve immediately while the chicken is still warm. Oh yum.

    My suggestion is, when you are boiling the chicken, why not add hot sauce at that point to infuse it into the chicken. Mine is cooking right now and I can’t wait!

    Can I cook this in a crock pot? I figure I could add everything but the celery, blue cheese crumbs, ranch, and lettuce.
