From the Test Kitchen*
  • Remove meat from drumsticks and thighs; discard bones. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Place shredded meat and sauce in separate airtight containers. Seal and chill for up to 3 days. Use in Chicken Wraps with Lime Cream (see recipe below).
Chicken Wraps with Lime Cream:
  • In a large skillet, heat reserved shredded chicken and sauce over medium heat until heated through. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup mayonnaise; 1/4 cup dairy sour cream; 1 tablespoon lime juice; and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Warm four 10-inch flour tortillas according to package directions. Place a lettuce leaf on each tortilla. Using a slotted spoon, spoon chicken mixture onto tortillas, just below the center. Top each with 2 tablespoons of sour cream mixture and, if desired, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons snipped, fresh cilantro. Fold bottom edge of a tortilla up and over filling. Fold one side in slightly, then roll up from the bottom. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve wraps with lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
