Chopping Celery

I have to give my husband all the credit for this recipe. He has loved hot wings since the day we met, and I don’t think I ever tried hot wings before he introduced me to them. Over the course of our marriage, I’ve come to enjoy hot food, but I’m still more of a medium girl.

Buffalo Chicken Salad

This recipe is a lot quicker to whip up than traditional wings. Just a few simple ingredients and your done.  We love the flavor of Frank’s Red Hot, but you can use any hot sauce you like.  I used canned chicken breast because that’s what I had on hand, however left over rotisserie chicken would taste great too.

I served the Buffalo Chicken Salad in lettuce wraps.  It would also taste great on crackers for lunch, as a snack or an appetizer.
