Get ready for one epic meal with these Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Cups. It’s smoky, slow-cooked buffalo chicken, wrapped in crisp lettuce, & topped with blue cheese!


For the homemade Ranch:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

For the tacos:

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 12 heads Boston Bibb Lettuce (or similar)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 ounces blue cheese crumbles


  1. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, milk, parsley, dill, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; refrigerate for later.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat up oil. Sauté onions, for about 5 minutes, until they turn golden and are translucent. Add chicken pieces and continue to cook, stirring frequently, for another 5 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink and is cooked through. Add buffalo sauce and heat up, reduce heat to simmer, and cook for an additional 3 minutes stirring throughout.
  3. Assemble lettuce cups by scooping 1/3 cup of chicken mixture inside a lettuce leaf, top with blue cheese crumbles, avocado slices, and drizzle with homemade ranch.


To make this recipe inside a slow cooker, brown onions and place them in the bowl of your slow cooker. Place chicken, buffalo sauce, cover, and cook, for 4 hours on high or 6 on how heat. Once cooked, serve following recipe directions.
