21 Shredded Chicken Recipes

So after sharing my absolute favourite way to cook chicken for easy as can be slow cooker shredded chicken earlier this week, clearly I needed to give you a bunch of ways to use all that cooked, shredded chicken you now have in your freezer.

I love to cook up a bunch of chicken (double or triple this recipe), shred it, and portion it out into freezer bags (I usually do about 2 cups per bag).  Then when I need a quick and easy weeknight meal, the part that takes the longest (i.e. cooking the meat) is already done for me.  I take it straight from the freezer and toss it into whatever I’m making and supper suddenly goes from 30 minutes of cooking to about 15.

It’s definitely the easiest way to save some time on those busy weeknights.  Or just the ones where you don’t really feel like cooking!

So here you go, 21 shredded chicken recipes (or leftover rotisserie chicken recipes!).  Some of our favourites, and some from around the web that I can’t wait to try!  Hope you find something you love here.
