Pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and you’ve got dinner ready to go in no time. The possibilities are very literally endless: enchiladas, casseroles, soups, pasta, whatever you feel.
And if you’ve got a chicken, why not buffalo it? The classic two-ingredient sauce comes together in mere seconds and the addition of chopped celery and blue cheese crumbles makes this dish like a whole plate of wings wrapped up in one bite. Our version here uses lettuce as a refreshing carb-free option, but you could obviously sub in tortillas here to make it a little heartier.
