Commonly asked Questions :
Do I have to use Chicken Breast?
For this recipe I use chicken breast but a boneless skinless chicken thigh could be used as well. They just shred a little differently
Where do I get the wing sauce?
Most supermarkets have this wing sauce on their condiment aisle . I have bought it at Wal-Mart and Kroger or it can even be bought at the Buffalo Wild Wing restaurant. If all else fails look on Amazon .
Do I have to use the brand of sauce you used?
When testing this recipe I used the Kroger brand of this sauce and it was good. I have to admit the buffalo wild wing sauce was just a little bit better. Sweet Baby Rae’s makes a version of this sauce but I have never tried it .
Can I use the Instant Pot to make this recipe ?
When testing this recipe I did try this in the instant pot and it worked. Follow the directions just as I wrote them but instead of cooking 3-4 hours on high set your Instant Pot to 12 minutes .
