Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Mango Salsa


 We are just a few days away from the biggest football game of the year... the Super Bowl!  So, when I was given the opportunity to purchase a bag of Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips and come up with a recipe using them, I decided to make something that would be fun to eat while watching the game.  

I went to the store with my kids yesterday and I think we stood in front of all the bags of Tyson Chicken in the freezer section for about ten minutes.  They had a lot of opinions on what I should get with my coupon.  They wanted to pretty much try everything Tyson carried.

I knew I wanted to eat the chicken strips in a lettuce wrap because I am a bit obsessed with using lettuce wraps with everything these days.  I also knew the chicken had to have the flavor of buffalo wings... it's the Super Bowl after all. 

The next step was to think about a topping to really make the whole dish fun and extra delicious. I decided to go with a sweet, spicy and fresh mango salsa.  

The final dish was so easy to pull together.  While the chicken strips baked in the oven, I quickly cut and diced up my mango salsa.  What a treat, we were enjoying them for lunch in less than 30 minutes. These will be a big hit at the Super Bowl party this weekend for sure.
