Shredded Chicken Recipes

So much for the "I'll post recipes later today" comment I made in my last post The Wonders of Shredded Chicken, it's been a whole week!  I'm going to blame the Wii U.  I've been busy rescuing lost fairies in Mario 3D World and haven't had time to post.  But the house is quiet this morning, I am the only one up (Cassie and Grahm are here for the weekend) so I figured I'd take advantage of it and catch up here.

So now you have made a crock pot full of shredded chicken and don't know what to do with it?  Let me help you out with that.  Put some in a bowl, put some cheese on top and put in in the microwave.  Grab a fork and wait impatiently for the cheese to melt.  Now just eat it.  Seriously - I do.  What?  Don't judge me, it makes a yummy snack!

Some other simple ideas:
Put it on tossed salad
Add some onion and celery and whatever seasoning you like and make chicken salad.
Put it in wraps with lettuce and whatever else you like
Add it to soups
Chicken tacos!

A few recipe ideas:
I am just going to add links to some of my favorite recipes I have tried and we liked, rather than reposting the entire recipe.
Buffalo Chicken Wrap
Chicken Caesar Wrap
Chicken Barley Chili
White Chili - One of my favorite recipes ever.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Chicken Club Pasta Salad

I could go on and on posting recipes that you can use pre-cooked shredded chicken in, but those are just a few that I have actually made and we liked. You can substitute the shredded chicken in any recipe that calls for cooked chicken, it's pretty versatile.  So what are you waiting for - go cook something yummy!


  1. Thank you for all the recipe ideas- I love shredded chicken, and I think you and I have very similar tastes based on the recipes you shared here. Loving your blog!

    1. Thanks Courtney! I'm glad you're enjoying it :) I have to tell ya, that chicken barley chili was so good that I was thinking about it this afternoon and I'm definitely going to have to make it again soon. I added some crushed tortilla chips to it (I always save the crumbs at the bottom of the bags, love to add them to any sort of chili!). So yummy.
