SUPER Easy Shredded Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I have this routine every week where  I tend to plan my crock pot meals on Mondays. Who else feels like Monday is the looongest day of the week?? Well, I guess I should ask... who doesn't feel like that? I would get less of a response.  Mondays are Boo :( sometimes, so the crock pot just brightens it up by putting less on my to-do list!  
I am all for going for what is easy in the kitchen now-a-days!  I couldn't make this more simple... this was a quick prep in the middle of the day! As soon as I got home from my evening workout, it was waiting for me. It made my house smell de-lish! So, I hope you enjoy this SUPER easy crock pot chicken meal!

Talk about a close-up!
Shredded Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps


For the chicken:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup of Cholula hot sauce
  • 1 can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic

For the wraps

  •  lettuce leaves, Bibb, Iceberg, or romaine

Option for your side: we made sauteed veggies with bell peppers, red onion, jalapeno, asparagus, and zucchini.

1. In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, garlic, 1 chipotle pepper finely chopped, and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of  broth isn't enough). Cover 
and cook on high 4 hours.

2. Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/4 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the slow cooker with the 1/4 cup broth, the remaining sauce from the jar of chipotle peppers, and the hot sauce. Set to on high for an additional 20-30 minutes. 

2. To prepare lettuce cups, place 1/4 to 1/2 cup buffalo chicken in each leaf (depending on the lettuce you chose), top with more hot sauce, and sauteed veggies of your choice. Wrap up and start eating!

As you can see... it was paper plate night at the house :)
