I’ve gotten into the habit of cooking a chicken in the crock pot on Sundays. Cooking it in the crockpot is easy (and doesn’t require the oven – it is still hot in Southern California!) and creates delicious, flavorful and really easy shredded chicken.

I’ve been eating buffalo chicken salads, curried chicken salads and plain chicken in my current favorite salad: greens + cucumber + chicken + avocado + hemp seeds + balsamic vinaigrette. There are endless ways to use shredded chicken – here are some of my favorites:

    Shredded chicken is my life. I’m thinking of having a t-shirt made. :)

    I love having the chicken already made to add to lunches and such- makes life so much easier.

    I would definitely make some enchiladas or another Mexican dish if I had some shredded chicken. I’ve been craving those lately.

    I tend to go for Mexican!
    Enchiladas are my favorite and I recently tried making a mole sauce, which was awesome!

    I love shredded chicken! I cook a ton of chicken breasts at one time, shred it all, and leave it in tupperware–it’s gone by the end of the week!! This is a great collection of recipes :)

    I totally agree about shredded chicken!! My favorite use is in Mexican dishes, nachos, and of course mid day salads that are easy to transport to work!!
