Buffalo Chicken Soft Tacos

Inspired by buffalo wings.  And by the fact that I don't actually like chicken wings.

But I do enjoy chicken and the sauces wings are often smothered in.  There are plenty of cooling elements in this recipe to take the bite out of the buffalo sauce, the amounts below are simply a guide.  This recipe is quick, simple, and tastes like something you could get at an American sports bar of sorts.

You will need:
1 bottle (or 150 ml/5 oz) Franks Redhot Buffalo Wings Sauce
6 medium chicken breasts
250 g (~9 oz) Mozzarella cheese
300 ml (1 1/4 cups) Sour Cream
10 soft taco shells
Lettuce (if desired)

1. Bake chicken breasts until cooked.  Sprinkle with a few teaspoons of the redhot sauce if you wish.

2. Allow chicken to cool slightly, then pull it apart (a bit like pulled pork) into small strips using a fork.

3. In a skillet, add the chicken and the bottle of Buffalo sauce.  Heat.

4. Assemble your taco with the mozzarella, chicken, sour cream, and lettuce in the shell.  You may wish to zap it for few seconds in the microwave to heat the shell.  I'd advise leaving the lettuce out until you've done that.

Simple. So. Simple.
