Delicious, savory chicken with tons of spices served in lettuce wraps for extra crunch. Lighten up your bar food in 2019!


  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon EACH onion powder, garlic powder, dried dill, dried parsley, and salt
  • 3/4 cup cayenne pepper hot sauce such as Frank's
  • 1/2 cup butter ((1 stick))
  • 1/4 cup torn cilantro leaves
  • 2 scallions (thinly sliced)
  • butter or romaine lettuce leaves for serving
  • gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbles for serving


  1. Preheat a large skillet to medium-high heat with the olive oil. Add the ground chicken and cook, stirring as you go, for about 7 minutes. Break up the chicken into little bits during this time.
  2. Add all of the spices to the chicken and stir for two minutes more to coat the chicken in the spices.
  3. Add the butter and hot sauce to the chicken mixture. Turn the heat off and stir gently to melt the butter and create a sauce. The butter mixture should coat the chicken but not be too soupy.
  4. Taste the chicken mixture and add more salt if it seems bland or more hot sauce if you like extra spice.
  5. Serve the chicken with lettuce cups and the cilantro, scallions, and cheese crumbles for building lettuce wraps. Enjoy!
