For shredded buffalo chicken

  • 1.25 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce

For serving

  • 12 bib lettuce leaves
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • ranch or blue cheese dressing


For chicken

  1. Using the Instant Pot, add chicken breasts, celery, carrot, onion, and buffalo sauce. Lightly stir to get sauce under the chicken. Close lid, seal pressure valve, and set on manual for 10 minutes. Start.

  2. When time is up, either naturally release pressure, or manually release it by flipping the valve (careful!). Remove the lid, then remove the chicken breasts and place on a cutting board. Using 2 forks, shred the chicken. Add shredded chicken back to the pot with the buffalo sauce mixture; stir to coat.

For serving

  1. Scoop 1/4 to 1/3 cup of chicken into each lettuce wrap, top with grated carrots and diced celery if desired. Add ranch or blue cheese* over the top of the chicken. Serve immediately!
