1 cup whole grain skinless wheat
2 cups shredded chicken or turkey meat
1/8 lb. butter

Wash and soak wheat in hot water over-night. Keep covered in a warm place. Next day add the meat and broth and cook slowly until wheat is soft and the water is absorbed. Add more water if necessary during cooking. Then add the salt and pepper and keep on beating with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth and mushy.
