This recipe originally came from and was done in a slow cooker for 4 hours. I use a heavy stock pot and my oven for 1/1/2 hours. Either way this is a wonderful, light meal.

How To Make buffalo chicken lettuce wraps

  • 1
    In a heavy stock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn't enough). Cover and cook @ 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
  • 2
    Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the pot with the 1/2 cup broth and the hot sauce (use more hot sauce if you really like to spice things up). Mix well.
