Buffalo wings often seem like an indulgent appetizer, with creamy dressings and, well, wings. We're adding a touch of the healthy here, with fresh lettuce and crisp carrot. Throw a dash of blue cheese on it, and we've turned the perfect heat of the wings into a crunchy, yummy dinner for two.

    Prepare the Chicken
