Listen, when I first started making batches of shredded chicken, I kept things fairly basic. I used it in sandwiches and tossed it on my salads.
But I’ve come a long way, baby.
I’ve figured out a way to incorporate shredded chicken into just about everything we’re eating. I don’t because – you know – the entire family might start a revolt against shredded chicken.
BUT – it’s comforting to know that even on the nights when we have no food in the house – I still have shredded chicken and can whip up SOMETHING to eat.
Here are a few of my (and my family’s) favorites:
BBQ Chicken Sliders with Homemade BBQ Sauce
A perfect way to liven up a classic comfort food is by swapping out a traditional hamburger bun with — Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, Romaine Lettuce ‘buns,’ or even make a bowl out of this by topping brown rice with this incredible BBQ chicken!
Ever take a spoonful of chicken noodle soup and wish that there was something more to sink your teeth into? Yeah. Me too.

Trust me, it gets into all the nooks and crannies and leaves the family completely fulfilled!

We must all find that one dish that actually meets every single craving. Try this! Savory and sweet, crunchy and hardy, fresh and absolutely irresistible. This salad is packed with so much bursting flavor that it is easy to miss all of the nutritional value snuck in! Spoiler alert: It is also excellent as a leftover!

This baked sweet pepper bowl hits all the feels. With its bold, bright presentation, it is easy to forget how much nutritional value is packed into each pepper! With each bite, it reminds us that healthy food can be delicious, fulfilling, and rewarding.
This beauty of a dish combines shredded chicken with a super simple homemade marinara sauce that will light up your taste buds in all the right ways. It’s a basic weeknight meal with a twist that will make it easier than every to whip together.
