Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps: 5 Minute Dinners

Pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and you’ve got dinner ready to go in no time. The possibilities are very literally endless: enchiladas, casseroles, soups, pasta, whatever you feel.
And if you’ve got a chicken, why not buffalo it? The classic two-ingredient sauce comes together in mere seconds and the addition of chopped celery and blue cheese crumbles makes this dish like a whole plate of wings wrapped up in one bite. Our version here uses lettuce as a refreshing carb-free option, but you could obviously sub in tortillas here to make it a little heartier.

Tabbouleh is a classic Middle Eastern dish made with chopped veggies, herbs, olive oil, lemon juice, and usually a starch like bulgur or couscous. For our recipe, we swapped in another favorite from the region: chickpeas. Because they’re packed with protein, this works great either as a side dish for grilled meats or as a vegetarian main course.

Serves 4 as a main dish or 6 as a side
2 15.5-oz. cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

2 tbsp. lemon juice
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 ½ cups parsley leaves
½ cup mint leaves
Pita bread, for serving (optional)
In a large bowl, add chickpeas, tomatoes and cucumber. In a food processor, add remaining ingredients, season generously with salt and pepper and pulse until smooth. Toss dressing with chickpea mixture and serve with warm pita bread, if desired.
