BBQ Chicken Lettuce Wraps

One of the easiest ways to serve food at a party is to have a “make it yourself” menu. Your guests feel as if they are a part of things and you, as the host, get to enjoy the party as much as your guests. Everyone is more relaxed if you aren’t running around doing everything yourself. 

I’ve had parties where guests have built their own burgers, tacos and salads. My new favorite party menu is for guests to build their own lettuce wraps. There are so many different toppings and fillings, plus lettuce wraps are healthy.

This year, I’m serving my BBQ Chicken Lettuce Wraps at my Super Bowl party.

They take the flavors of the classic buffalo chicken but are fun to make (and healthy).   I love to serve all kinds of toppings with these: blue cheese is a classic, but I also have cucumber, radish, cilantro and a red cabbage slaw.

You can make the chicken ahead of time and then reheat, so there is nothing that will need to cook while your guests are there and you can have guests bring toppings to share.

I hope you’ll give my BBQ Chicken Lettuce Wraps a try this Sunday at your Super Bowl party.

how good is that
