Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups

These Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups are my absolute favorite thing on earth right now. Made with shredded chicken, greek yogurt, buffalo sauce, celery, onions, parsley, salt and pepper.

I’m always needing healthy lunch prep ideas. I’ve found that if I don’t have something semi-prepared for the week, I’ll end up snacking on a bunch of random things for lunch and come 3:00pm, I am SO starving! I love these Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups because they are incredibly tasty and healthy, but also satisfying!

Chicken Salad is one of my favorite lunch prep go-to’s for a few reasons..it lasts all week, it’s healthy, you can change up how you eat it.. wraps, lettuce cups, salad, sandwich, with crackers etc. etc, and it’s just delicious!

These Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups are absolutely divine and so easy to throw together! I always make my chicken in the Instant Pot because it comes out perfectly every time, and if you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I ONLY shred my chicken in my KitchenAid Stand mixer because why would you do it any other way??

This chicken salad is very versatile, so don’t feel like you have to eat it in butter lettuce cups every day. Make a wrap one day and a salad the next! Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days and enjoy!
