Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe
These homemade buffalo chicken wraps are excellent. Honey and lime juice help tone down the hot wing sauce for a refreshing zip. They’re perfect for lunch or a light summer meal with a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade. –Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
