Instant Pot Keto Low-Carb Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

 This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my full disclosure here.

Instant Pot Keto Low-Carb Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps is a quick and easy pressure cooker recipe with chicken breasts, Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce, gooey cheddar cheese, and then sprinkled with blue cheese and green onions. This recipe takes 30 minutes to make and is perfect for weeknight dinners or advanced meal prep. 

This recipe is very similar to my Low-Carb Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe. I use plain, non-fat Greek yogurt (adds protein) and cream cheese for a little more creaminess. I use a lot less of these than I do in the dip for optimal texture.

If you do not have an Instant Pot you can make your chicken breasts using a slow-cooker or crockpot. Cook the chicken in the slow-cooker with chicken broth for 4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low. All of the other directions in this recipe will remain the same.

While I absolutely LOVE carbs….pretty much ALL carbs and bread…I have to exercise balance. Eating dishes that are more healthy can be incredibly easy, if you select the right combination of ingredients. My goal is to never compromise on taste!

Here is what I love about the Instant Pot….the machine makes it so easy for us with hectic lifestyles! I threw the chicken breasts in the pot with the broth. Set the timing and then moved on to prep the remaining ingredients.

I love to use romaine hearts for the lettuce because it is large enough to hold enough filling for one large serving. You can also use butter or bib lettuce.

I used crumbled blue cheese, feel free to use keto-friendly blue cheese dressing. Drizzle the dressing on top of the lettuce wrap. It sounds amazing. I will definitely try that out the next time I prepare these wraps.

One wrap may be enough for a meal for you. I paired my lettuce wrap with a side of sautéed mushrooms and once with steamed broccoli. You really can’t go wrong with this recipe.

I like to meal prep my lunch for work on the weekends. For meal prep purposes, I stored my romaine lettuce in large plastic Ziploc bags. I packed the shredded chicken and crumbled blue cheese in separate Tupperware containers. This way, I was able to reheat the chicken separate from the lettuce and enjoy a crunchy, fresh lettuce wrap each day.

Notes

Total cook time above includes time for the Instant Pot to come to pressure and to naturally release the steam.
If you do not have an Instant Pot you can make your chicken breasts using a slow-cooker or crockpot. Cook the chicken in the slow-cooker with chicken broth for 4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low. All of the other directions in this recipe will remain the same.
Because the chicken is cooked in broth it will have some flavor. Be cautious with how much seasoning, salt, and pepper you add. This recipe shouldn’t need much. Add a small amount, taste a little, and adjust if needed.
I love to use romaine hearts for the lettuce because it is large enough to hold enough filling for one large serving. You can also use butter or bib lettuce.
I used crumbled blue cheese, feel free to use keto-friendly blue cheese dressing. Drizzle the dressing on top of the lettuce wrap. It sounds amazing. I will definitely try that out the next time I prepare these wraps

If I want to double the recipe, does the cook time need to be doubled? I’ve read somewhere that that’s not always the case for instant pots so I wanted to inquire first..... thanks!

No, the cook time for the chicken should remain the same. It may take a little longer to get the cheese and other ingredients to melt while using the saute function.

Can you use frozen chicken for this and if so, is there a longer cook time? I’m new to the Instant Pot.

Yes. I don't use frozen meats while cooking. The Instant Pot website and manual includes cook time from frozen.
