Buffalo Chicken Wraps: Something Else to do with Leftover Whole Chicken

I promised you an update on the attempt at Buffalo Chicken Wraps in this post all about how to use a whole chicken, and here it is!

in the pot

  1. Take any leftover chicken and get it off the bone. Place in a medium sauce pot with your choice of sauce.
    (Mind you, this is day 3-still using meat from a whole chicken that cost less than $5, and I never repeated a flavor profile). I did leave one wing on the bone. Since I was using Buffalo-style sauce, it seemed fitting to have a hot wing for the husband.
  2. Set the stove to low heat (1 or 2 max).
  3. Simmer in sauce for 1/2 an hour.
  4. After 30 minutes, remove from pot with a slotted spoon and place in a mixing bowl.
    You may even choose to rinse the chicken off if you like a drier texture.

  5. Using a hand mixer-set to low, shred the chicken.shredded

    For a drier texture, chop chicken instead of shredding.

  6. Then wrap up the chicken with your choice of toppings.
    We used ranch and thin-sliced celery. Next time, I would definitely use Romaine lettuce. The celery was a great texture, but wasn’t enough to balance the sauce.
