Recipes for Shredded Chicken

Last week I scored a great deal on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and ended up with almost 6 pounds. While I could've frozen them for another time, I decided to boil them up to make multiple meals for the week.

I've found that boiling chicken gives the best results for shredding. It only takes about 45 minutes and doesn't require any time hovering over the piping hot stove.

So out of my nearly 6 pounds of chicken, I got 8 heaping cups of shredded chicken.

Here are a few of the recipes (or similar meals) that we made or plan to make:

This recipe looks great, can’t wait to try this out. I’m really interested about the rice, sounds pretty weird, but I’m definitely going to give it a try.

Thanks for checking it out! My kids loved the Chicken & Black Bean Enchilada and Rice Bake. It might sound weird, but it's a keeper!
