  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 4 breasts (makes about 4 cups shredded chicken)
  • 1 1/3 cup hot sauce, I use Frank's
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  1. Fill a large bowl with 6 cups cold water and 3 tablespoons kosher salt. Add chicken pieces. Mix well. Let chicken sit in brine for 30 minutes. Drain.

  2.  Add chicken breasts to a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Boil until chicken is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Remove from the pot and let cool. Once the chicken is cool enough to handle, use two forks to shred. Return shredded chicken to the pot.

  3. Combine hot sauce, honey, light brown sugar and butter in a medium saucepan whisking until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once mixture boils, lower to a simmer and cook for 8-10 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened.

  4. Pour some of the hot honey sauce over the shredded chicken in the pot. Use as much sauce as you'd like. You can reserve the remainder in a jar in your refrigerator or serve on the side.
