Shredded Chicken Recipes

Two days before Charlotte’s due date, my mom came down to visit…so we prepped food for my freezer! We made some casseroles, but it’s also when she showed me how to prep shredded chicken using a slow cooker.  She makes shredded chicken every couple of months to freeze for recipes.  It’s super easy!

Easy Shredded Chicken Prep
Having shredded chicken portions in the freezer was a dinner-saver some nights with a newborn. You can use the shredded chicken for just about anything: quesadillas, enchiladas, BBQ sandwiches…just to name a few! I thought it would be fun to make a whole week of shredded chicken meals, and wanted to share the recipes I used:
