  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce, I used Frank’s, to taste, divided

For the wraps:

  • 6 large lettuce leaves, Bibb or Romaine
  • 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 large celery stalks, diced
  • Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing
  • Mild Cheddar Cheese, shredded


  1. Combine chicken, onions, celery, garlic, broth and 1/2 cup Franks buffalo wing sauce (enough to cover your chicken) in the Instant Pot. Cover and cook high pressure 12 minutes. Natural release for 5 minutes.
  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 reserved broth and the remaining buffalo wing sauce; stir to combine. Makes 3 cups chicken.
  3. To assemble lettuce wraps, place 1/2 cup buffalo chicken in each leaf, top with shredded carrots, celery, dressing of your choice and cheese. Enjoy!
