Juicy, spicy, and bursting with flavor, this buffalo chicken sandwich recipe is the perfect beat-the-heat BBQ meal. To give it a potent punch of flavor, we used our feisty, medium-heat Original Buffalo Sauce, but you can sub in our Hot Buff if you prefer more fire. In just a few steps and thirty minutes of your time, this crowd-pleasing, keto and paleo-friendly sandwich comes together for a mouthwatering handheld meal.

We used a Traeger smoker/grill combo to make the chicken in this lettuce wrap, but you can use any grill you like, set to a high-heat setting. This recipe can also be made with smoked chicken for a slightly more robust flavor profile. No matter how you prepare your chicken, the vibrant Buffalo flavor of this sandwich will liven up your day. 

How to Make A Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Season boneless, skinless chicken breasts with your go-to seasoning rub before placing them on the grill. If you’re feeling inspired, try our Homemade Rub to make a sassy seasoning right in your own kitchen.

The secret to making this sammy perfect is using crispy, healthy iceberg lettuce leaves. A weaker leaf will lack that tasty crunch and won’t be able to support all the delicious fixings that add bold flavor.

Look for vibrant green leaves when shopping for lettuce to ensure the “wrap” is stable, and then cut from the inside out for the sturdiest lettuce. You can also opt to cut the bottom and top sections off of your lettuce head and use them as a makeshift "bun" for your juicy chicken. See the recipe photo below for an example of what a lettuce bun looks like.
