Always have healthy shredded chicken ready for use in quick main dishes and salads! Purchase chicken in bulk, cook it in a slow cooker until it is soft, and then shred it. Store it in the freezer in 4 oz servings and take it out as needed. It defrosts very rapidly that way!
This can be done with pork as well. Shredded beef doesn't seem to fare as well in the freezer.

I like to bake extra boneless skinless chicken breasts & then, using two forks, shred. If not using right away, I freeze. Itís nice to have on hand for a salad or wrap, adding flavor & protein. Shredding seems to put more chicken in every bite.
